chalk and paint fabrics...

i'm so excited!  today is my stop on the chalk and paint fabrics blog tour.  chalk and paint is sew caroline's third collection from art gallery fabrics.  with a nod to all things creative and imaginative, this soft and colorful collection is pretty dreamy and i couldn't wait to create with it!

inspired by the latest video tutorial from missouri star quilt company and caroline's "writings on the wall" print, i created "make," a mini quilt for the creators inside us all.

i love the soft black hue from the "triangle brush tempera" print and without much thought, knew it had to be the contrast of my mini quilt.

i used a 5-1/2" block for my background and trimmed the overall combined blocks to 10" square.  i love how each block is organic and unique.  the texture the matchstick quilting gives this finished 18"x18" mini quilt is fun and don't you think "dripping paint cooling" is a perfect binding?

the center of this mini quilt is a blank canvas.  you can make it personal and fun!
