Oh, Another Mini Quilt*

I did it again. More mini quilts in the bag, or on the wall I should say. 

I really can't stop making these still, they're too addictive! After finishing my Moda alphabet quilt top recently, I hadn't quite got the alphabet letter's out of my system so I made a 'J' for moi and an 'R' for my friend's little boy; Ruan. She's just moved to a new house so I thought it would be a fun moving in present ;-) 



I added the star like Camille has on her mini, for a little something extra as it's quite plain without. You can find the tutorial to make the tiny 2" block over here on the Temecula Quilt Co. blog. Now I made this teeeeeny tiny star at almost midnight - not advised, and I vaguely struggling with the cutting instructions, which was probably due to my inaccurate reading at such a late hour but just double check to be sure ;-) ... and don't try making it at midnight, K?

Next up is the Dwell mini, I finished this a couple weeks ago but realised I never shared the finished piece. I just love that scallop quilting pattern, I then echoed that with my favourite scallop print.


Oh, and then I had to make the Rise and Shine mini as it was just released along with some other fantastic Thimbleblossoms patterns. I used the amazingly cute 'Betty Dear' by Darlene Zimmerman charm pack

I'm fast running out of wall space now so I may have to stop soon... we'll see?

  2. Well the good news is you can get a lot more of these quilts up in the same wall space then you can get even baby quilts.

  9. They're such a happy bunch, brightening up your wall. I don't see any need for you to stop. You can keep them on rotation, displaying your current favorites.

    Happy weekend!

  13. Those are just gorgeous!! Do you sell the colorful spotty fabric that you used to make the R quilt? I simply love it. Is it the same as your Pam Kitty Picnic spotty one? I've been looking for a fabric like that for ages. Thanks very much, Pati x
