Little Finishes and Decorating with Quilts


  
It's always a good day when a block of the month kit arrives--I usually try to piece my block right away so I don't get behind. Block 9 of the Fat Quarter Shop Mystery Designer Block of the Month was in my mailbox Saturday morning, and by Saturday afternoon I had pieced this adorable house block.



 I'm adding sashing and setting my blocks together as I go this time. There are just three more blocks...I believe they are all supposed to be flower blocks--I can't wait to see them.



I really do love everything about this quilt...including the border and backing which I have ready to go as well.

  
Another little finish this weekend was an "S" mini-quilt which has been on my list for quite some time. If you're interested in some free alphabet letter patterns, be sure to follow the Moda Designer's Blog Hop, Spell it with Fabric, going on now. All of the designers are taking turns sharing alphabet letter patterns made with jelly roll strips and fat eighths. They are also sharing their unique versions of the alphabet quilt!



 I love decorating with my mini quilts in my sewing room. I moved a few around to make new for my recent finishes. I now have my Mini Swoon and Mini Spools above my design board (which is right above my sewing machine).



And my mini "S", Mini Dwell and Mini Puddle Jumping are happily housed above the window.

Thanks so much for stopping by...have a wonderful day!

This may seem like a no brainer to you, but how do you hang your minis?

I just got my new Designer Mystery block kit in Saturday's mail. I can't wait to make that too so I can put that row on the others! Everyone that sees this project loves it....

I can't wait to make a small "P" for my sewing room...I just have to wait for someone to post the instructions!

Your little minis are adorable Sherri! I don't have any walls in my sewing room, but if I did, I would definitely follow your lead!

I'm waiting for my Block 9 to arrive. Your quilt is looking great with the sashings. I still haven't had time to open up the finishing kit but I'm hoping to get a start on them too.

You are so smart to keep current with the BOM's. Love the way you have decorated your space with mini quilts

So cute!!! Is that a butterfly quilt there on the left? I am getting ready to replaster the wall opposite my sewing table in my sewing room and I am planning to have the whole wall covered with mini quilts! I still have a huge stash of doll quilt kits from Material Obession from a few years ago to finish up, and of course the boat quilt will be the star. I love your small quilting project, I am so sorry that I missed it while it was free! It's adorable. I am curious how you hang them, too -- do you use hanging pockets/sleeves or just pin them up? ~Angela~

I love the fabric and pattern for the mystery bom that you posted...do you have a link for the bom? I am looking for a sampler type quilt to do in the near future. Thanks for posting such lovely photos I get inspired by each and every one!
