Favorites: Little Quilts




Happy December! And welcome to the monthly parade of small quilts. This month's parades feature the most wonderful versions of the Fig Tree pattern "Stems"...I can hardly wait to share. 

But first...next month's pattern reveal...my Mini shine pattern. My mini quilt (along with the big version)  is pictured above, and it's one of my favorite mini's. Everyone who submitted a "Stems" quilt photo to either Sinta or I will receive a free PDF of the pattern from me...kind of my way of saying "thank you" to all of you for participating. And for everyone else, I have the Mini Shine (and everything else in my Etsy shop) on sale for 30% off until December 5th with the code December. There are also 3 copies of the Scraps, Inc. book  in the Etsy shop that i just added today. Okay...enough with all of that...here are the "Stems" quilts!
 




When Carol sent her beautiful photo, I'm sure my heart skipped a beat--it's just beautiful!





 And then another Carol sent this amazing version. I am just in love with the navy background!

 


 And then Cynthia sent in this American Jane version...another breathtaking version.



 Greg's red and green version was one I got to watch progress on Instagram, and now I want to make this version as well (I told you you were in for a treat with today's parade)!



And this soothing fall version by Gretchen has the perfect mix of color, print, and pattern!


And then there is  this beautiful version by Hildy. Now Hildy always goes the extra mile and usually makes more than one of every project.



 This month she made four quilts...one for each season!!!




 And then there is this fun version from Jennifer...don't you love her butterflies...and the sun...gorgeous!


 Jodi sent in another gorgeous quilt. I love the "Into the Woods" collection, and I absolutely love it in this pattern!



 Kim used Fig Tree fabrics for her beautiful quilt...something about the middle border just sets it off perfectly!




And finally we have Mindy's version...with three rows...love it...these blocks are addicting, and Mindy has showed us that we don't have to stop with two rows!

You'll want to visit Sinta's blog, Pink Pincushion, to see the rest of the quilts in today's parade. Thanks so much for stopping by!

That is so nice of you to give us your Shine pattern. The Mini Stems quilts are so cute and I love seeing what fabric everyone decides to use.

I love all of the quilts in today's quilt parade. Carol's version, using just green fabrics on a navy background is so unexpected, and gives a different dimension to the pattern. Lovely.
I really enjoy the quilt parades. I've got to make time to participate one day.

Cynthia said...

All the quilts are beautiful, It's always so fun to see how everyone makes their quilt "their own"! Thank you so much for the pdf of your Mini Shine, what a wonderful treat that is :)

I love all of them, but I love how Mindy's stems zig zag and are at slightly different levels. every one a beauty.

Kim said...

I love it when I get to see the same quilt made up by different people. Thanks for sharing them with us.

It was fun sewing along this month, and now I want to make the full sized Stems! As always, it is great to see all the different variations from other quilters!
