I prepped a lot this week, so nothing to show in that regard. Well, I guess I could show it, but that would be boring!
However, there has been a teeny bit of sewing going on. Teeny as in teeny quilts!
Kathie truly has inspired me with these mini quilts. They go together quickly, and I've had so much fun piddling with them. When I only have a few minutes to sew, great headway is made!
This one was put together a couple of weeks ago. Isn't it darling? Kathie was, again, the force behind this quilt. Penny was feeling neglected, so when I put it down to photo, she crawled up next to it and rolled over so I could rub her belly!
She's not used to me sitting at the machine. I got her when life was starting to get complicated, and I just didn't want to sew much. Now when I sit at the machine, she's constantly trying to distract me. Silly dog!
The little patriotic tumblers are a work in progress.
Kathie and I have been swapping fabrics. I sent her a charm pack of this older Judie Rothermel fabric, and while she was cutting hers, she cut some tumblers for me! These are so much fun, and will give me good practice to sew those big tumblers of '30s fabrics that I cut with the Go cutter. No, I haven't forgotten about those! I love patriotics, and this will be one of my favorite mini quilts!
I say "one of my favorites" because this one is my absolute favorite!
In one of the exchange boxes, Kathie tucked in this little beauty! Oh, my, I was so surprised! Doesn't it make you want to get out some buttons and challenge someone to a game of checkers? It's adorable, Kathie! Thank you so much!
I had previously made this little quilt ...
... so now I have four that will hang on that wall in my future studio!
If you haven't made a mini quilt, I'd say give it a whirl! They're quick and fun and you'll love every second of the process!
