A little modification
In the Spring 2014 magazine issue of Quilts and More, there was a little quilt pattern for a door decoration quilt. I took the pattern and modified it just a little bit, adding the borders on three sides. It would be fun to complete a little quilt like this for each season!! Can't you just see this in autumn colors? I will enjoy the stitching at night...I love those quiet times, just sitting and stitching.
Recently I have been on a cutting binge. Tiny throwaway slivers are turned into these hot pads. Backing, batting, and tiny pieces squished flat with the iron, then just quilted over the top of it all. They make great hot pads, and I get to use all those tiny slivers.
I recently got this at an antique shop. Everything was super inexpensive, don't know why. Maybe they were going out of business? I have no idea what this says, however...do you know? Hope it it something good, LOL!! I do like the old patina of this antique little mirror.
What does it say??
Is this a doily? or a handkerchief? I washed it and pressed it flat. It was in a box of old hankies.
Karen the Log Cabin Quilter sent me these fun Halloween fat quarters!! I love them...how much fun!
And this strings are being cut based on an idea from Karen's blog. She recently made a quilt border with tiny log cabin blocks, made all from browns. I was smitten!! Please go visit her HERE!
Hope your day is great today, and that you have some stitching time!!
