    Lara, now you have me thinking--what would it be that it was flipped left to right? And 1" squares? Those are so tiny--my less than accurate 1/4 seam would wreak havoc with that, for sure! And the panty clothesline is just hilarious.

    Almond, I just love the chicken quilt. I'm really impressed with all of you early birds. Mine is still a work in progress but it's getting there. Sorry partner to be so slow!

    Here's my little mini for Nancia finally almost finished! We both decided to donate our minis to AAQI so we'll each be posting pics of our own quilts for each other and then we'll get them registered and mailed off to the charity! I just need to put the fast triangles on the back or whatever fixture I decide on. Sure hope Nancia likes my mini and especially the person who buys it and hopefully it will sell! The frame and binding fabric is black and gold and really shimmers in the light but the camera doesn't capture that. I call it "Simply Floral."

    hey, n2! that is really beautiful!! i was painting yours earlier today and will be making design alterations, so it is no where near finished, but it is definitely coming along. i will start it on different fabric tomorrow, so i can decide whether it will be painted then appliqued or all painted and embellished. what media did you use on mine? did you paint the background ? it looks really lovely, like a stained glass portal! thank you for using my favorite colors! (smile!)

    Take time to give... It is too short a day to be selfish.

    Thank you so much, Nancia! No rush to finish.....take your time!! This pic in its early stages I like better than the final, but anyway, I just drew on a clothes dryer sheet as you can see from the pic and just like working a jigsaw puzzle, put all the pieces in place (fabric) w/fab glue. Had no idea how to do an oval fabric frame but got thru it ok. I always improvise somehow. The little berries were red metal disks I cut off of a sequined fabric and they worked great and shine alot but the camera doesn't show it very well. Thought about threadpainting it, but the pieces were so micro mini to handle, I knew it'd be near impossible thread painting it so just used permanent markers for the leading. I initially wanted it to be a seamless, bindless mini but this afternoon dictated other changes. Here's how it looked yesterday afternoon: so glad you like it. It was a challenge! lol....

    p.s. thanx everyone so much!! glad you like it.

    Thanks, Nancia! It's 9x10. The design is 4x5. Just remembered that I'm going to ModPodge it tomorrow to seal the whole thing (just the design). The black/gold fabric was given to me and they got it in NYC and because it's stretchy, it was perfect choice to fit around the oval shape, however, it was difficult to work with getting it to cut evenly so what a fun time that was! haha. Like I said I would research the oval shape and it brought no help at all, but I just researched circles and it gave some bit of help. lol. It was a try-it-and-see technique! Kind of like what you will be doing since you said you haven't done anything this small yet. You hit the nail on the head when you called it a floral portal -- that's exactly what it is. Do you mind if I rename it Floral Portal? haha.
