Mini Quilt Parade

Hello

Been playing about with mini quilts which is good fun cos you can complete a quilt in a couple of days, Yeah

The first one I did was machine pieced with hand quilting finish.  Used left over fabric from a lap quilt I gave my friend Julie for Xmas.  The finished squares are 1inch and the "quilt" measures 9.5ins x 12ins.


One of the ladies at Sewing Circle had a Tim Holtz half inch hexie punch and she kindly gave me some teeny hexies.  Had some left over fabric from the last baby quilt so did some English Paper Piecing with them.  This one is hand pieced and machine quilted the totally opposite from the first one.  Finished "quilt" size 9ins x 7ins. 


Last Saturday I went to the new Quilt Show at Harrogate Show Ground.  Bought this set of acrylic small templates along with an extra 1 inch apple core template from Crafty-uk


They came in a cute treasure chest.


Thought the back looked good.


Hand pieced, hand quilted measures 6 x 7.5 ins so the smallest yet.




I know that technically this isn't a quilt but it is hand quilted so nearly qualifies.  All antique mother of pearl buttons.

A little bundle of fun which fell into my shopping basket, 2.5 ins of loveliness.


Cheers
Sharon

  2. Am making the most of my winter lay off, the gardens are waking up so will be back to gardening everyday soon! The button display isnt my design, I bought a pattern from Dandelion Designs.
