Small things amuse small minds !
I don't know whether that is an actual saying or not. I'm sure I heard it somewhere - lol !! Anyway I have had so much fun ( and made so much mess ) making this mini quilt. I have had this pattern for ages and thought it was so sweet. I have decided that I love doing mini quilts ! So quick, use little fabric and best of all - the basting takes about one and a half minutes - lol !!
The whole quilt measures about 10 inches by twelve so some of the pieces were really little. I am going to put it on my wall alongside the log cabin houses quilt I showed a while ago.
The cat is actually brown and not as dark as the picture shows. I deliberately used a colour different to any of my cats because then I would have had to make 3 - one of each colour. Just in case any of them got jealous you know - lol !!!
The fabric I used for the border is one I bought a couple of weeks ago. I plan to use it for setting squares for an on-point 9-patch. But I couldn't resist using a bit in this as I love it so much.
Talking of fabric I topped up my stash a little last night at my quilting group. Our lovely fabric lady turned up and I bought these
and this very cool stuff.
which was- just as I thought it would be- a big hit with Patrick. He has asked me to make him a quillow for quite a while now so just maybe . . .
