Just a little mini


Look what I made yesterday while my quiltgroup was here. It's not perfectly sewn it's a bit crooked, but I had so much fun. Isn't that what counts right?

I would like to see it on the wall too.

It's a lovely,simple, clear 2-colour design. I think we should be making more of them.

Paula said...

I think it looks great. I love two color quilts, even little minis!!! Great job.

Beth said...

Very nice Lucy! I like how you've taken your picture too.

I love minature blocks - the one that you have pictured looks like one from the "Nearly Insane" book -- I'm in the middle of my second Dear Jane quilt so I know a lot of the hard work that goes into the small quilts!

Like all your quilts, Lucy, this mini is absolutely charming. I just love your traditional style. Little Faithy says hi!

Minis are the greatest! This is adorable and you are right having fun making a quilt is what it is all about.

Your mini looks lovely, Lucy, and yes, the fun counts, doesn't it? I am making a little cradle quilt right now and it looks far from perfect, but since it will be used I don't really mind. It's the fun ...
About the Christmas trees of felt: this wasn't a kit or something. Heidi gave us the trees (Ikea?) and added beads and thread etc. to it. The girls took out their own beads etc. as well.

Have a great weekend! Groetjes, Carolien

Oh it is soooo cute! I started one once like this in pink and brown and never finished it. Hmmm, I had better get that back out!

nicolette said...

Very cute little mini!!

This is so beautiful, and for me, it brings up a childhood memory which I was just talking about with my quilt friend Nancy a few days ago. When I was little the girl next door had a set of blocks that could be used make designs. My favorite side was the one made of red and white triangles, like your mini. I had so much fun playing with those blocks...And yesterday I was playing with my almost four year old grandson with a "parquetry" toy with colored wooden shapes that could be arranged in many patterns. I think there must be a gene for this, don't you!

movinghands said...

Love the two colors! Just the right size for a cute display. I made a red and white quilt and it is a favorite.

Patty said...

I love it Lucy....it looks perfect to me

Karen Dianne Lee said...

Love the red and white mini. Now that would be fun to make a mini every week. Okay, maybe one mini a month. :)

I love your blog and your beautiful works!
I wish you a nice day!
( sorry for my blog in norwegian..)

Kim said...

Mini quilts let us enjoy a bit of quilt goodness throughout our homes and workspace. I have always enjoyed the two color quilts. Nice that you have a quilt group to spend time with. I like that idea!
Happy quilting!
Kim

Can't see a crookedy place anywhere, it's just darling. And completely finished. That heart is such a nice contrast to the quilt.

Karen said...

Your mini quilt is very striking. I very much like red & white quilts. I find that in sewing the tiny pieces for mini quilts, it is really difficult to have a little quilt turn out nice and straight. I think that is a little of the charm.

Quilt Hollow said...

Hi Lucy
It has been awhile since I've posted to your blog. Your little quilts are just adorable. Bonnie told me she was going to be seeing you in December....I'm tickled for you both to spend time together again.
