I like quilting, but it's hard to work with bigger stuff because of how my sewing machine is set up.  Looking at Pinterest I kept seeing mini quilts so I thought I'd try some.

Here's my glam cat mini quilt.  It's about 12x10.5.


I finally found a binding tutorial that doesn't suck so it actually turned out!


This is the first one I tried.  It's made from a fat 1/8th bundle my mom gave me.  This one is 9x12.


Thanks for looking!

They look wonderful! The cat face is really unique and interesting looking. Nice work!
Have you thought about making mug rugs or panels for bags? Those are nice smaller projects that you can be as simple or detailed with as you like.
Also, alwaysinmyroom posted a cheaty binding tutorial that I've tried and found nice and easy.
