    Some of my small pieces from the past few years

    I have made quite a few mini quilts and mug rugs and things like that in recent years for swaps on Flickr. Here are a few of my favorites:

    It may have had two layers of batting in it but I don't think so... The background is linen, though, and I matched the thread to the linen so that the texture of the quilting became the focus rather than the quilting itself. Linen shows quilting beautifully, I've found. It can be a bit fiddly/stretchy, though, so you have to be super careful.

    The one above it had two layers of batting in places (I was experimenting with trapunto), which is why the unquilted sections puff out so much.

    Wow...all look wonderful.
    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place. We are nearing closer to the End Times.
