My friend Jenn @A Quarter Inch from the Edge dipped her toes into the waters of the #miniminiquiltswap and I couldn't wait to swap with her! I know that she loves selvages and teal, and I decided to play with a bit of quilting to make the design for the "front" of the mini quilt, although I think in...
I am thrilled to share the finished lap quilt for Project Linus today. Just like with the baby quilt, the blocks were designed and created during the 2015 New Block Blog Hop. Thank you so much to the 19 women who designed and created the blocks used in this quilt. They are listed below left to right, top to bottom as seen...
Over the Thanksgiving holiday, I was able to piece and finish the baby sized charity quilt for Project Linus using blocks created and collected from the 2015 New Block Blog Hop. Thank you so much to the 6 women who designed and created the blocks used in this quilt. They are listed below left to right, top to bottom as...
Last weekend I finished a mini quilt for a private swap, and now that it has been received I can tell you about it! The paper pieced pattern for the central portion of the quilt is called Triple Goosed by Jelli Quilts. I pieced the quilt top while I was at the Quilt Bliss retreat, and I brought it home...
Yesterday I shipped off two more #miniminiquiltswap mini mini quilts to head to their new homes. It is hard to believe that mini mini quilts number 19 and 20 are complete; I never would have guessed I would make so many of these back when Kitty @Night Quilter introduced them to me in September. These really are fun projects that...
Have you ever had a quilt that seemed like it needed to be made. right. NOW?!? This quilt definitely falls into that category. It clearly is not my typical style, but I am oh so glad I had the ball rolling on this one because the timing ended up working out perfectly. In fact, I was in such a...
I really enjoyed making the Lighthouse Lens set of 8 quilted placemats, and I am happy to show off their finish today.
My table can comfortably seat 6, but I was able to get all 8 set across the table to get a feel for how they look as a group.
Half of the placemats are backed in Giants of the...
After taking a break from making mini mini quilts for the Instagram #miniminiquiltswap, I caught back up with my backlog of commitments this weekend and made 4 more!
Each mini mini quilt feels like a design challenge on its own. I really like the challenge of incorporating most of the things people tell me that they like (such as books,...
I finished Red Herring, and I am so excited to get to reveal the whole quilt to you today.
Well, the wind was as excited as I was yesterday. The photo shoot was a bit of of a challenge, to say the least. But with the corner flipped up, you can see how beautifully the Kona Bahama Blue (background) and...
Today I am excited to be sharing a quilted placemat tutorial on the Inspired by Fabric blog featuring the Nite Owl fabric line. You can also find the free tutorial in my Craftsy store. I think the design I came up with looks a lot like candy corn when using the Nite Owl fabric, and I especially enjoyed keeping the...
Many thanks to Stash Bee Hive 2 and a few extra friends who shipped me quilt blocks when I was queen bee in June. I was so delighted to finish the quilt and gift it to my husband on Tuesday afternoon. He loves to be the first to pull a quilt out of the dryer and pet its soft...
This should be my last post about mini mini quilts... for a while. I took on 6 more mini mini quilt swaps and worked over the weekend to get them all put together. I have an inkling that these will crop up from time to time... but I really have other (larger) quilts that have waited patiently for me...
I shipped off two more mini mini quilts yesterday, and I have agreed to 6 more swaps at the moment. *gulp* These two mini minis were both fun to create, so how about a closer look?!
I met Helen @Midget Gem Quilts by participating in the Stash Bee this year. We are both in Hive 2, and it has been a pleasure...
Since first presenting the mini mini quilts I made last week, I have not been able to stop making mini mini quilts to swap. The third mini quilt I made was actually a themed mini quilt; the person I am swapping with requested a Halloween theme. Thankfully, Sarah @Smiles Too Loudly had gifted me a fat quarter of the...

And your spark has been stolen

Yesterday in my blog reading, I came across Kitty @Night Quilter's post and received an introduction through her blog about mini mini quilts. Greatly intrigued, I followed her advice and popped over to Instagram to check out #miniminiquiltswap. Figuring that I would poke through my scrap bin, you know, just to see what might happen...
You might say I quickly...

When I picked up the crib sheets to make the Doggie Baby quilt on commission, I also could not resist purchasing two other really cute crib sheets with a lovely gray and white / gray yellow and white animal theme. Knowing that I can make these crib sheet baby quilts in 2 hours and have a low cost item...
