Happy December! I'm happy to share a finish with you today! This is a miniature version of my trees! quilt. I love how it turned out, and as usual, I want to make 100 more!
I always get nervous when quilting smaller pieces like this (how backwards is that?) because I am afraid that the quilting will look big and chunky and that it will ruin the piece. (I can find anything to stress out about, let me tell you!) One night last week when I was unable to sleep, I forced myself to get out of bed and work on something. Anything. This was the closest thing to being finished, so I quilted it and sewed on the binding in the wee hours of the morning while the rest of my household was asleep. Going to sleep at 2am isn't recommended, but it felt good to make some progress. Sometimes that's just how it goes!
Photography is sooo tricky in the winter! I trudged about 1/2 mile through the snow at a local park to get a few photos. That was an adventure in itself! I had to explain myself to the man who was grooming the ski trails. That was fun. Hahaha!
But, it was worth it! Right before my battery died, I snapped this photo. It's one of my favorites! (The background is an old picnic table.) I love the red polka dot binding, too! (Fabric is confetti dots by dear stella.)
The mini quilt finishes at 15" x 22 1/2". If you'd like to make one of your own, I wrote up a pattern and it is available for purchase here.
Happy Monday to you!
