A little project to start off 2011

003

I was so close to finishing the top for this little quilt late last night that I stayed up stitching away till 1:00 a.m.  I should know better than to work on details such as measuring and cutting sashing when I’m tired because I got it wrong and had to come back this morning to fix things.  It made it very close for the sashing fabric…I started with less than a quarter yard scrap and after having to redo it, all I have leftover are crumbs… almost dust!  I was holding my breath!

Now to quilt and bind it and then I’m going to display it in a ready made frame.  The quilt is 18” x 24” and so it will fit just right.

That is TEENY! I'm trying to applique down big circles on my Dresden Plate and having fits, and then I see this delicate work and shake my head at my ineptitude. Beautiful job!

18" x 24" of beauty. I get stupid sewing after 8 PM. Wishing you lots of finishes in 2011. Oh and lots of new starts too.

Wow, I'm amazed at the size of this finish, wonderful job Annette, I love it. The quilt fairies were smiling on you, I'm so happy you had just the right amount of sashing to finish this project.

Simply gorgeous, Annette. I never would have guessed that it was a mini.

I can wait to see it framed. Do you quilt it if you are going to frame it?
