Since we got the puppy, (Puppies! Gaaaah! 5 months old now and so stinking squirrely. Remind me why I wanted another dog? She's at the vet hospital today getting her lady parts snipped. I'm having a Luna-tic free day and I'm so excited I don't know what to do first! Weeeeee!) I've become queen of the quick-fix, the short story, the fast and furious. While I long for those days of uninterrupted hours in the sewing room, I'm learning to work in short bursts of creativity. It appears for the moment at least, that I'm stuck on making mini quilts.
This one started with a few crocheted squares. I matched them up with some fabric and the rest took care of itself.
Then I attached the crochet squares to the center of each block. My crocheted blocks were 4 inches, so I cut my linen squares at 5.5 inches to allow for seams and about 1/2 inch of linen all the way around the block.
Here's how I hang my mini quilts.
Buy some of these little plastic rings at the craft store. These are about 3/4 inch.
So that's my ta-dah for the week. I also wanted to share my prize from The Crafte Nook that I won in her give-away.......
All the way from England! Isn't it cute! It's pinned to my favorite sweater right now. Thanks again Pixie!
