Mini quilt monday

vintageminiquilt

It's Monday in May which can only mean one thing: it's time for another mini quilt, of course.

I call this one "ode to vintage fabric" because that pile of vintage fabrics in my craft room doesn't get used quite as often as it should.

The big blocks on the front are my all-time favorite print (right now) and I have a couple large panels of the same fabric destined to become curtains in my new craft room.

I plan on hanging this little quilt on the wall, to be all matchy-matchy with the curtains.

That is, if a small fish doesn't claim it first!

Happy day, all!

It is really great. The fabric looks like a Liberty print, and I love the little shot of apples. The combination of vintage florals with the graphic pattern is excellent.

Tami (Pixeltrash) said...

I love this! I think I can quilt like that! I never thought of just doing corners all around. You have inspired me! Thanks!
I've never quilted before.

I love your vintage blocks. If you check out my blog, you can see what I just did with a vintage tablecloth yesterday.

That fabric is BEAUTIFUL! Are you making a mini-quilt every week now? Man, you're good. (and I'm bad for not keeping up!)
Cheers,
