Mini-quilts and more

 Added another mini-quilt to my collection.
This is about 12 inches x 14 inches.
The flowered background fabric was leftover from
the bridesmaids dresses I made for our daughter's wedding.
I love the little stair step design.


The mini-quilt I shared earlier is 12 inches square.


And displayed, lots of space for more mini-quilts.



Next up on the design wall is this small quilt,
finished size will be around 30 inches square.
This quilt was inspired by Confessions of a Quilt Addicts Supernova.
Sarah began with 7 inch squares, I used 3 inch squares, 
because they were already cut and waiting for inspiration.



Now to find time to get it finished.

Fun, fun!

Spring has Arrived


A few weeks ago I took time to create this Spring Flower wall hanging.
I used a free pattern, and made a few changes.
I was a little rusty from not quilting for a few months, 
but with a little practice it came back to me.


Close up of feather quilting.


And my favorite block, helps that it's my favorite color.
(Looks like I'm a little rusty on proper pressing, 
not to mention blogging...)



I even managed to use the resulting 1/2 square triangles to 
create this mini quilt.
I'm trying to do more of these mini quilts
 to display on my studio wall.


The wall hanging now resides in my office at work, since I spend
so much time there I might as well enjoy some of my own work.

I also made this wreath for on my office door.
I've been working here 2 years, it's time to add a little personal touch.


Happy Spring!
