It’s 9″ by 12″ and I absolutely love how it turned out! It’s destined be a Christmas gift but I’m pretty convinced that I want to make a lap quilt using these fabrics. This was made using the 3″ Inklingo Winding Ways collection. I’m thinking if I do make the lap quilt, I may use the 4.5″ size instead — although maybe not. These little 3″ blocks were pure bliss to piece as every seam involved curved piecing and each block seemed to be done very quickly. So I’m thinking a lap quilt made up of the tiny blocks would be a lot of fun piecing. Thankfully I don’t have to decide for quite some time as there are lots of other projects I need to finish first before I even think about starting it.
I couldn’t resist taking this photo. As I was making the piece, I kept holding it up to the light because I was fascinated by this almost stained glass effect. Of course I did that and then promptly forgot to photograph the back before I put it with the backing and batting and got it ready to quilt.
I need to make at least two more mini quilts like this for Christmas gifts, but I’ve yet to decide on the design. One or two of them may have little stars. One might be a Drunkard’s Path design. Or maybe tiny clamshells. It’s going to be fun figuring that out and getting those done. I’d like to have them finished before mid-October.
Since I last posted we’ve had one heatwave, then a few days of cooler weather and now it’s back to a heatwave. We’re going to need gills to breathe if this humidity keeps up!
When I saw this variation in the 6″ Deluxe Winding Ways collection, I knew I had to try it. It’s fun to piece with all that lovely curved piecing. I think I’ll make enough of this one for a table … Continue reading →
I am finding the Inklingo 3″ Deluxe Winding Ways blocks absolutely irresistible. So much so I had to make a couple with these little floral and soft green fabrics. This is one of the variations in the Deluxe collection – … Continue reading →
I went back in my blog archives and found a couple of other projects I’d made with Inklingo no-waste fussy cutting/printing and fabrics that were perhaps not obvious candidates. The first one was made using this fabric that I never … Continue reading →
I know that I’m in the minority on this, but I love working with small pieces. And while I continue working on piecing the blocks for the Pickled Ladies pieced border, I keep thinking about a miniature — hmm, something. … Continue reading →
The final two Floral Wheel blocks are done. First this one. And its back. And the final one. I added even more of the squares on this one as I know how I’m putting them together now. And the photo of … Continue reading →
The story begins with these floral fabrics that I found when I was searching for fabrics for my version of Valse Brillante. Which I am still, by the way, in the process of pulling. More about that later in the … Continue reading →
The little Garden Stars quilt top is almost finished. I’m debating whether to add a small border. Right now it’s 12″ square. If I do add a border, I’m not sure what colour to add. Mr. Q.O. says lime green. … Continue reading →
First lots of little kaleidoscope stars made with the .50″/1.0″ star point and .50″ hexagons. They will join this group and more that have been finished for a grand total of 28 little treasures. Now I’m going to start playing … Continue reading →
Three of the little 4.5″ Patchwork of the Crosses blocks, that is. I just couldn’t resist on the weekend and made one more to add to the slowly growing pile of these way too cute for words tiny blocks. There … Continue reading →
