Riley Blake Challenge Mini Quilt

When I first started thinking about what I wanted to do for this challenge, I was going in a completely different direction.  Then, I got bored with that design, and came up with this simple one.  I chose black as the background to make the bright, summery colors really pop.  I also decided to try out flecked binding and I think it really adds interest.

I echoed the empty box block on the front and made a larger, scrappy version. This is the first real project I did free motion quilting. Not too shabby for a first go… Lots of room for improvement!
