Teenytiny quilt swap


I got my mini quilt from the swap Tracy hosted. She was the maker of this sweet little mini quilt. It's it just darling. She also sent me a pattern and templates for mini bow tie quilts. So, I'll be making one real soon. Thank you so much Tracy, you're a wonderful host and hope to join in some more of your swaps when I can find the time. What a lovely ending to a great day!!!!!!

Since we are on the subject of mini's Tracy got me hooked on these little babies, Once I made the first one , which wasn't the greatest I just couldn't quit making them I have made 7 since Christmas. The first one was a snail trail using fabrics that were sent by my partner. Looking back, I know I could have done better. The second one was the mad about plaid one, it's very tiny it measures 9x12" . Next I pieced the DWR all was going good until I quilted it on my machine and it got sort of wonky on the edges, so I went on to make the fan/dresden one, it's 10" square without the border. Next was the pinwheel with prairie points I really like this one. The last one I made for a swap we had on the HGTV forum, My partner gave me the color she liked and so this is what I made it was 11" square before the border was put on. I"ve been wanting a mini quilt wall since I have seen so many and loved everyone of them. So, I'm off to a good start.

  2. I haven't tried a mini yet, they look so intricate. I'm afraid I'd end up with a bunch of little ufo's! You do beautiful work eq.

  3. Your mini's are really great! One of these days I may try one really small. I'd probably have to have only 4 blocks. tracy said you'd like to get your husband quilting. Check out my Blog. Mondays posting is the ideal first lap quilt for a guy. No hand work, and can make lots of mistakes that won't show.
