I adore my Diana MINI toy camera. But I want to do more with it than just take pictures. Since I already display it my studio as a prized possession; I decided one day, this day being a few years back, to make a mini quilt featuring it. I drafted the paper piece pattern and started stitching my first paper pieced project the same day. Thank goodness I had no fear of paper piecing and randomly made my own because now I have a template to work from while I stitch my second one.
I’ve now finished the camera body. Next I’ll be working on the camera lens applique.
Making a baby quilt is a great excuse to buy new fabric. This pretty stack of fabric is mostly Heather Bailey’s line, True Colors. I don’t typically stick with one fabric line and this quilt isn’t an exception, I had to add a couple extras.
- Solid Stone (Bluebird Park, Kate and Birdie Paper Co.)
- Picnic Daisy Orchid
- Mod Dot Orchid
- Chevron Orchid
- Butterfly Dot Orchid (Lottie Da)
- New Wave Pink
- Chevron Dove
- Mod Dot Aqua
- New Wave Turquoise
- Picnic Daisy Turquoise
