So we are zooming through the Modern Mini Challenge Blog Hop and I hope you've had lots of fun with all the inspiration!
Today I'm excited to send you over to two supremely talented quilters: Angela of Cut to Pieces and Sara of Sew Sweetness. Lots of quilting goodness my friends!
I met Angela in person at the Sewing Summit last fall and she is so funny, genuine, and fun. I just wished we had had more time to hang out!
You definitely don't want to miss her modern mini. It's adorable!
Angela has done some really fabulous minis that depict a story- check out more of Angela in this interview I did with her a while back.
Then you simply must pop on over to see Sara at Sew Sweetness. Sara is just so sweet (she really is) and today she has an awesome modern mini tutorial for you for this super cool planetary quilt!
Sara also has a New York Beauty Quilt-Along coming up in March!
So now, after all of today's directives, I'm delighted to introduce you to the Saturday Spotlight: Paige of Paper Starfish.
She's got lots of talent and is another kind soul. You'll have to check out her confetti quilt too- it rocks!
