Number 3 Mini Quilt

This is number three in our Mini Quilt Series.
I love the fresh look of this one - it will be either a Spring or Summer wallhanging.

I have really enjoyed hand quilting these little projects.

Back soon with Number Four made by Cindy and Number Five should 
be finished tonight by me.

Number Two Mini Quilt

Just when I thought the 2" squares featured in my last 
Blog Post were crazy - now it this!!!!!

And the little sawtooth half square triangle units are 1" finished.

I think I am starting to like making small things.

At least they are finished fast.
And they make great hand quilting projects.
This whole quilt only measures 16" by 20".

Watch for the next one in the series of six.
They will all be in 1800s Reproduction fabrics.
I feel a Quilt of the Month Programme coming on.

Blue and White Cot Quilt

This has been my latest machine piecing project.
It is a Trip Around The World, like my earlier school quilt, but gone slightly crazy!

Those pieces were cut 6" and the new new blue ones were cut 2".
That is quite a difference when you come to cutting and sewing the number
of squares needed to make a quilt.

This has been quilted by Helen Harford in a well spread stipple which 
I think is perfect as it adds interest without taking over.

But I think it was worth as I love the effect of the blue and white cot quilt.
We have made both these quilts into kitsets at the shop.

Back soon with next mini quilt.
