    I made these over the weekend. The flower quilt is just lots of fun. One of the flowers is 3-D, and I embellished the quilt with vintage and new buttons. I finished it and had it hanging before leaving the studio.

    The oriental quilt was made from fabrics I cut for an AAQI project. I just put them together and quilted. It's much like the one I made for AAQI but larger since I didn't have size restrictions to deal with.

    My plan is to make a few more of these and display them in the studio. Thanks for looking.

    Those are so pretty, especially the floral one. But not having been very active in the quilting world, I'm just wondering what you do with these small projects. It must be satisfying to work on something small and so pretty for a change, to get through with it and do something with it!

    I don't often make small projects and usually they are for a specific reason, ie. AAQI or a guild gift or such. These I made just for the fun of a fast creative project before I get back on the big projects that have to finish before Christmas.
