Cathedral Window Mini-quilt

 Tried a new technique today.

The video is completed using 5" squares,
I used 3".  The mini-quilt measures approx. 15" square.


I used the "quilt as you go" method that's mentioned
in the video.  This is not a hard project but it is time 
consuming. There are endless color options,
I used the same background fabric for each block.


Adding another mini-quilt to my wall is enjoyable
and addicting.


Now to find another mini-quilt idea.

A little sewing...

Recently I added to my mini quilt collection. 


This Scottie Dog quilt block is less than 11 inches square.
I really like the candy stripe binding and no repeat fabrics.


I also decided it would be nice to have a new spring purse.
I tried buying one but just couldn't find anything I liked.
So....(or should I say sew....)
 

The exterior is a remnant of fabric purchased at a
thrift store for less than $2.  
The interior features custom pockets.


I can't take credit for the purse pattern.  
It's loosely based on

Hoping to continue sewing during the
warm summer....maybe I should
dig out some Christmas fabric.

Enjoy your summer!
