For and about Minis

I'm still considering my options for my Great-Great-Grandmother's quilt (GGG). So, instead of working on that last night, I spent some time making some more bibs. They aren't done yet - I still need to do the top stitching and add velcro closures, but aren't they CUTE! When Christmas rolls around this year, I'm going to be ready with some gifties!


Most of this fabric came from Becky at As the Quilt Turns last November when she was looking to unload some scraps. Thanks again, Becky!

Oh, and I entered another quilt in the weekly themed contest at the Quilting Gallery. I had forgotten until I got an email from someone I've never met who voted for mine. How cool - thank you Joe Tulips! This week's theme is Minatures, and I entered this little shirts and ties quilt titled Haberdashery that won me an Honorable Mention ribbon in the County Fair a couple years ago.

I took at peek at the other entries and WOW! Yet again, I am in awe of what others have done. It is a good thing I can't see everyone else's submissions before I submit my own, because I would be too humbled to put my quilt out there. I saw that Em put her House that Love Built quilt in there - love it! I encourage you to get a fresh cup of coffee or tea, and spend 10 minutes checking out the little lovelies!

I love love the quilt and how funny that we are celebrating one another's in the contest!!!! I see the your miniature quilt and I think of your sweet boys when you were all dressed up and dancing last spring. Happy Friday!!!!

What a cool mini quilt! Are those real buttons going down the fronts!? I'm amazed! Such a simple thing with such cool impact. Good luck on the Minis contest -- yours has every bit as much chance to win as anyone of them there!!!
Blessings,
Mary Lou

What a great miniature. When I saw it I thought of your kids when they're all dressed up with their bow ties. I voted for you too. I agree the other ones were nice but aside from yours the only other one that really impressed me was the sampler. How the heck do you work on something that small?

Nice mini quilt! Haberdashery is a perfect name for this little quilt. You don't see many bow ties these days.
