I'm Going Mini Quilting


I got up this morning feeling so much better than the last 3 days. The muscle relaxants really helped. Thanks to everyone for sending positive thoughts my way.

I've had a full quilty day today. I finished tying my mom's quilt this morning. Then realized I didn't have of the fabric I wanted to use for the binding so I'm trying to decide what to do now. Then it was time for my hair cut and color job. After being pampered for a couple hours I came home and knew I just to start a project. I know, I know, I started my postcard last night and was supposed to finish it today, but when a project starts speaking to me I can't ignore it.

So, my quilt lesson for today was making a mini quilt. This is one of the patterns I bought a few weeks ago at the World Quilt Show in Manchester. At the moment the quilt is about 13.5 inches by 19 inches. The patches in the middle measure 1.5 inches. There is one more border to make that consists of 68 1.5 inch HSTs. I have them done I just need to press them.

Some of the blocks are a little out of proportion, but it has been a great exercise for the afternoon. To keep me company and to get ready for the Patriots game tomorrow I have watched the DVDs from each of the Patriots Super Bowl winning seasons. I will be soooooo ready for football tomorrow.

Oh dear - reminds me that I have a few nieces who are huge American Doll fans - and Christmas is right around the corner... tick, tock! Great job - it is a very sweet, little quilt!

Cheers!

What a darling teeny quilt.

so cute! You should have put a coin or something next to one of the patches just to show how itty bitty those pieces really are.

Glad the meds kicked in to relieve your back situation--bet you are too, LOL.

I love your little mini quilt. And your postcard from yesterday. I've been feeling the post cards calling to me lately. I've been trying to ignore them but then here you go showing another great one. Guess it's time for me to pull some scraps and play. :-)

I'm glad your back is some better today. Some days (most days!) muscle relaxers are my best friends.

Good to hear you're feeling better. Those drugs work wonders, don't they? :)
Have fun with the mini quilt-my fingers don't like tiny pieces. But I can admire from afar.

Nothing like those little, tiny blocks to make you want to stitch up something cute.
