In August, I made this mini for Terry. It was inspired by this quilt pattern called Round & Round by Camille Roskelley.
This doll quilt was made with my very small pack of vintage charms & a bit of Kona khaki. It also gave me a chance to practice my hand quilting. I used a maroon perle for outlining the red stars and a gold perle for the center and corner stars. I know I need more practice!
In September, I was partnered with Annette and the theme was "Quilt within a quilt." I came up with something, but I guess I can't show it yet, cause it's been in the postal netherworld for at least a month! The package I received from Annette was just breathtaking!! It is called Flight Path and I am in love!! The colors, the butterflies and the quilting are all amazing! She used a raw-edge applique technique on most of the butterflies and the 2 in the upper left corner are bonded and sort of sit up 3-D style! Isn't it adorable???
and finally (for now) I participated in a swap through the FB group Modern Quilting. We were to make a Christmas or holiday themed mini quilt. I had in my head that I wanted to experiment with Oakshott. I chose the Ruby Red Bundle and I really loved it! I was thinking of a Christmas tree lot at night. I used a grey Aurifil for the straight line quilting and then to mimic the strings of lights at the tree lot, I used a sparkly variegated thread for a few lines "crossing" the lot.
