September - 12 minis in 12 months 2018 - Trim bits of Farmhouse

Over the weekend I gave into temptation and took a break from pattern testing to play with the corner pieces trimmed from my in-progress quilt pattern blocks.

After previewing several layouts, this was it. Layout options when working with HSTs (half-square triangles) truly are countless. All you have to do is a turn a couple, and voila! - a new layout!

Tried something a little different with quilting. Still used the walking foot but mixed up directions and tried to find shapes within shapes. Not sure how I feel about it yet, but at least I tried something new ; ) 

This little mini quilt will go up on my mini quilt wall or be used wherever needed as a little table topper or candle mat. It does feel good to use up some little scrap bits.

It also feels good to have finished September's mini quilt for #12minisin12months. Woohoo!!! Now I can focus on a custom quilt in the queue and finishing up my first quilt pattern.

Happy quilting, everyone!

August - 12 minis in 12 months 2018 - Somerset Figgy goodness

This pretty little Somerset quilt didn't get done in August but in early September - close enough ; ) Such a super fun, super quick finish (thank goodness because that is all it seems I have time for currently.)

These little mini charm packs are turning out to be the perfect thing to create with lately.  Grab a little bit of background and mini charm pack, and in no time you have a quick little quilt finished.

Mini and quick doesn't have to mean boring and/or no impact - I love the impact the center of this little mini quilt offers.

Simple straight line crosshatch quilting. Ah! the little X's in all the little squares - perfect!

Really do love these colors!

Quick little squares folded in half as hanging corners - now this little mini quilt can be used as a table topper or wallhanging.

 Beautiful little mini quilt just in time for fall knocking on the door : )

Happy quilting, Everyone!
