Mini Cherry Top Is Done

In spite of last night's panic attack regarding triangles, seam allowances, and matching points, today the top is done. Yay!

So, a roll call of the fabrics used, as best as I could figure out: Nicey Jane (3 prints), Timeless Treasures cupcake prints (2), Chez Moi Posh by Moda, Joel Dewberry Heirloom Rose Bouquet and Paisley, Larkspur Bright Multi by Alexander Henri, Mary Englebright  (1), and several Cranston Print Works prints. There are also a few that might be Cranston, but there are no selvages. These were donated mill run ends that I used for a school fundraiser quilt years ago.

The solid is Kona Pomegranate—which you may recognize as my Emmeline apron scrap color.

I admit that I went and bought a backing piece today, I don't have any scraps large enough. It needs to be washed. My (on sale) choice to be revealed later.

When bound, this will be about 20" x 20". My first mini.
