A mini quilt



Yesterday afternoon I was supposed to be packing but I could not stop thinking about Weece.  I was trying to think of some way to have her here with me now and remembered that I still had some of the Dream On fabric that was left from making her quilt so I made a mini quilt. I suppose it could be a mug rug too but I am not sure if I would want to muss it with coffee, tea or biscuits.

I am really happy with the way it turned out and I had never made a mini quilt before but I am sure I will be making more. It is a quick way to complete some sewing when you have limited time but need a sewing fix! If there is anyone interested, I will do a tutorial. I would like to do this one again with some other fabrics.

Please excuse the bad lighting, it is gray and rainy here.





On a huge upnote...Miss Amylouwho will be starting up Sew and Tell Friday beginning today! I will linking this project up there.



As for me, back to packing and I will be back soon with an approved giveaway that I know you will all be GO!ing for ( lame attempt at pun).

Again, thank you everyone for your thoughts, kind words and prayers.

What a lovely idea. Something tangible is always comforting to me, and it sounds like it will be for you, too.

Kim, I'm so sorry to hear about your grandma. She sounded like a wonderful lady. Your mini is so cute, and I love that you were able to use some of the same fabric for it as you did in her quilt! Your design is great, and I love the little strip of color on the backing!
