    Hey all! I finished two new mini quilts last week. Hope you like seeing them.

    (Actually, I finished a third one also, but can't show it to you until it gets to my July DQ Swap partner.)

    Thanks for looking!

    P.S. The second one is also handquilted.

    I purchased this preprint wholecloth mini at the Cincinnati Int'l Quilt Festival and just now finished it. All hand quilted! I love hand quilting! Why did no one tell me how much fun it would be? This is 16 by 16.

    This one is my own design. I picked up the fabrics at different times and different places, and they just seemed to fit together. This is about 18 by 18.

    They are so wonderful. Thank you for posting them. I enjoyed seeing them so much. Sorry I am not finding the words to tell you how impressed I am with them both.

    Oh how I wish I could HQ--the whole cloth is spectacular! And paisleys are my favorite. Isn't it great when we can step outside the matchy fabrics of lines and create our own sense of design! Can't wait to see the DQ. G

    Very beautiful. I love the colours of the second one. They work so well together.

    Both are very beautiful. I especially love the paisley one. I love it when unrelated pieces of fabric "just go together". Good job!

    Very nice. I've got a question though. What size is a mini? Maybe me and Sis have been making them all along?

    We do sample blocks before cutting up the purdy stuff-like it or not, they get sandwiched, quilted and bound and hung on the wall. Maybe we're ahead of the game on minis?

    Beautiful work! After the wholecloth I didn't think I could be more impressed, but the paisley is gorgeous too!

    Anything small is a mini if you call it that! The DQ Swap is anything from 12" by 12" to 24" by 24". The AAQI minis are no larger than 9" by 12" -- I find those limitations harder.

    Some would say that minis must be miniatures of larger piecing patterns, but I just choose to ignore those folks and do what I like to do!
