After two futile attempts at making a mini-quilt 12” by 12” for the SAQA Benefit Auction 2014 (as posted here and here) I finally managed to stay within in the size limitations!
I had finished piecing Shapes 18, which will be one of the five smaller pieces I am making for the exhibition in Alfeld, Germany, in Ocotober, and as I was ironing a piece of blue fabric which was to become the binding my eyes fell upon this – in one of my approximately forty boxes of fabrics which happened to be in front of my eyes:
|Four green cut-out squares, waiting for their life to start|
That struck a chord, and together with a few cut-out circles that were still left from Shapes 18, I immediately started on this arrangement.
|Perfect size arrangement!|
Here you can see the backside, partically quilted:

Because I, too, want to have a post on the regional SAQA-blog, which will be hosting The Grand Gallery of SAQA Europe/Middle East’s contributions to the Benefit Auction later in the year, I am not publishing more pictures of the process, nor of the finished piece here/yet, but will let you know when the post is up on the regional blog.
