I accomplished a few things, including falling down the last three stairs in my townhome. Stupid slippery socks. I have a couple of bruises, but I'm okay! I'm moving slowly this morning, though.
Today, I want to share two mini quilts with you. One was for a friend, and the other was from a friend.
You may have noticed in my mosaic, but I recently knit a second pair of Toast mitts for my friend/fellow guild member, Tammy.
I used some of the handspun from Sam. We made a trade last year, and this was one of the skeins she sent.
I wasn't expecting anything in return for the mitts; Tammy just wanted a pair, and is hoping to learn to knit soon.
She surprised me with the cutest mini at our February meeting.
Look! She used Kelly's LOVE pattern, and also pebble quilted for the first time. I love it, and it was so sweet of Tammy to make me a little treat!
My pal Kaelin has been on a sewing hiatus, due to a neck injury. She was sentenced to six weeks of no-sewing, which is, luckily, almost over. Some of her friends conspired to make her a care package, and I made her a mini quilt. I didn't want to give it away, but I did, reluctantly. She received it last week, so I can share it with you!
I'm so obsessed with wonky stars, guys. I can't even tell you!
Kaelin is very into navy/pink right now, so I used some favorite fabrics in those colors and densely quilted this. The fabrics include: Dear Stella stars (love!), Metro Modern circles, and a fireworks print I picked up at Sewing Summit. There's no selvage, but I wish I knew what it was! I'd love to get some more of that print!
I love the way the quilting turned out. I wouldn't want to densely quilt a larger size project, but on a mini, it's not too time-consuming.
I made a little hanger, which I sewed into the binding, and bound it with some jelly roll strips of the new Pezzy Prints. The back fabric is Lecien My Folklore.
