Mini Quilt Monday

Happy Monday! It was a busy, busy weekend here at home (we had a baby shower here at the house for my older daughter who is expecting in October), but I did manage to sneak in a little sewing! Sometimes it seems like if I can just sew for thirty minutes then all is well.


 So when I had a few minutes the other night I got my Vintage Tulips Mini quilt cut out. I used scraps from several Bonnie & Camille fabric collections, and I even cut out all of the background pieces from my background scrap bin.




 Labeling the background pieces really helps with a project like this where there are several different pieces pretty close in size.



For this project I didn't need to label the print fabrics since it was pretty easy to tell what part of the quilt they are for. I'm hoping to add just a touch of navy into my mini quilt, too. If it doesn't work out I can always replace those squares.



 These mini tulips were a lot of fun to make...I might have to make the full-size version of this quilt one of these days, too.



 The goal for the weekend was just to finish the three flowers....I think the mini will go together in a jiffy now that these are done!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Love your tulips! I've already made mine and yea, they're fun and addictive:-) And I've already quilted the top, yeah for me, but I'm planning to do something fun for the back so I need a bit more time to finish it completly ... then I send you a photo:-)

Half the battle isn't it, have something ready to go. Today I hope to make some progress getting ready for a class next week with Freddie Moran.

I finished a Vintage Tulips Mini last month. I love it. You are right that it goes together in a jiffy once the tulips are complete. I love tulips and these are my favourite to make so far. Isn't Hello Darling a darling collection?

Those are really cute and very tempting, but I'm going to walk away. Quickly. I don't need another project...I don't need another project. LOL
