    Post Three More Minis!!

    Have had the urge to do some minis so I did 3 this week and still will probably do a few more. The first 2 minis are from leftover triangles from other projects. The first mini, Breakthrough, I used a vintage selvage for the binding (the NYC company is no longer in business) and used big quilt stitches with embroidery floss to highlight the breakthrough blocks. The second mini, Watering Can, I just used up purchased appliques and the third mini, Stained Glass, I've been wanting to do for a long time. Hope you enjoy my minis! The blocks are the size of a quarter! They will be for gifts.

    Those are just too cute. The Watering can is my favorite.
    Fabric is like money, no matter how much you have it's never enough.

    In order to put the mini in perspective, we place a coin or postage stamp on the quilt to gauge the size. Otherwise, it appears as a big block. In America, we know the size of a quarter but for the int'l viewers, they have to guess the size. Hope that explains it and you can see how small it actually is. Thank you, sewfine!

    Thanks everyone for your super comments!
