A very "Mini" Quilt

Fresh Lemons Quilts
Just doing a belated post for Mini Quilt Monday Friday at Fresh Lemons.  This is a starflower block I made using the tutorial by Jennifer @ Ellison Lane Quilts which ends up at about 12.5 inches square. The great thing about this tutorial is that you actually get 2 blocks made at once. 
 I was originally going to do FMQ quilting but decided to do simple echo quilting like on the much larger Starflower quilt I made last week. This has finished up after quilting and binding at only 12 inches square so it is quite a cute little “mini” quilt.
 I wish I could take a photo of this beside the Giant Starflower quilt......and because this block is such a  colourful one, I am going to link it to the Celebrate Color event which is being hosted by Rachel over at Stitched in Color.
