Finish It Friday: Curvy Mini Quilt

This little mini quilt started as a personal challenge to experiment with curved piecing. Ultimately, I found that curves are not that scary at all - I'll share a tutorial down the line. 

I also made a New Year's Resolution to finish up all of the UFOs (unfinished objects) in my sewing room before I start on anything new. We'll see how that goes, but baby steps, right?

For now, I'm here to reveal my big finish of the week—my Curvy Mini Quilt!

Before quilting:

and after quilting

I really do love a dense, straight line quilting design. 
It works particularly well, I think, to offset all of those circular bits.

This little gem is now brightening up my cube at work. And I feel more confident piecing curves. AND I finished a pesky UFO!

Happy Stitching!
