Katherine, by testing her new block pattern called terrific tulip. It's a great pattern and it was a lot of fun to sew up! It was also a good exercise in following directions. (I am usually writing them, not following them. It was a nice change of pace! Ha!) Isn't the block cute?
This morning, I quilted it up and turned it into a mini quilt. It measures about 12" square. I think I love diamond crosshatching most of all for minis! The bias gingham binding makes a perfect finish, too, doesn't it? I love how it turned out so much, I immediately hung it up above my desk. It will make me smile every time I see it! I am SO ready for spring....
I'm not sure where I picked up this tip, but I read it somewhere awhile back. You can use your dull/used sewing machine needles to hang up your mini quilts on the wall. The needles are still fairly sharp and since they are rigid, they easily push into the wall. Works like a charm! I love repurposing things and I thought that this was a pretty genius idea. As an aside...I'm so thankful that my husband doesn't mind how many holes I put into the wall!
That's it for me today! Do you have a finish to share? If so, please link up. Thank you, as always, for joining me for finish it up Friday! I really mean that! :) Have a great weekend! xo
