Nice that it brought in $110 who would have thought.... You did a fantastic job.. are you making a second one for yourself????

I always figure I can make another one that is why it was so easy to let go..and the funds went towards a great cause .. adults that need continuous care...

a group that I stitch n' bitch with want to make one so I will have another one they all want one too.. but want to make it themselves..

thanks for the great words.. this is just an idea for those that want to make mini's

I thought it was a larger quilt too. You as always did a beautiful job. Is it a paper pieced pattern? I'm going to learn how to do that sometime this month.....I hope!

these pieces are only 1/4in finished.. the quilt is about 25in square.. my friend Sandy Lindal machine quilted it for me with wonderful feathers if you want to see it up close you can see it on my blog..
This was strip pieced not paper pieced.. oh my to tear all the paper out would have been a headache!! but with the next one I am making the pieces are pretty small too. I am doing a storm at sea in very mini.. that will be my quilt for the person I draw for me to give away..love very traditional mini's ..

Oh storm at sea, what a beautiful design, I love that one too. I have never made that block in your avatar paper pieced either. I have seen it called Snow Crystals and Carpenters wheel, what do you call it? The quilting is beautiful too, how pretty, love the fabricss
