Ok. I made a list 2 weeks ago. I did finish the first task on my list. Finishing my Mile-a-minute quilt. I have to be honest. It was not as fast as the instructions or name makes it sound. I think I do better with a pattern, instead of just sewing all the scraps together. But it is done and looks pretty great.
I used a green sheet for the back of it. This method is nice because the fabric is all one piece and it is actually cheaper to buy a set of sheets than to buy a large amount of fabric. The downside is a sheet is more slippery when quilting it, IMO. So it has a couple wrinkles quilted in on the back. I don't like that but it looks better now that i washed it. Also I quilted it with a leaf and vine pattern. You can click the picture to get a closer look.
