All year long I’ve been following Aurifil’s ‘Designers of the Month‘ series, hoping to do all of the projects but finally realizing that it’s June and I should just pick one and make it. Their theme this year is mini quilts (last year if you remember it was a block-of-the-month project).

p.s. Be sure to stop by next Tuesday … Patch + Dot will be hosting Jen of Quilter in the Closet‘s Building Block Tuesday link up, and I’ve got something special planned to go along with it. (This week’s host is Alison of Little Bunny Quilts so head over and check out her post as well!)
