Small Quilts





I have had these fabrics from a fabric club I belong too, I get 16 pieces that are about 10 x 10 inches ever other month.
After using them to make a small quilt for my Secret Santa Christmas swap, as well as a pin cushion and a Christmas tree decoration I still had plenty left and made these two quilts in the picture. The HS triangle one is 7 1/2 x 9 1/2 inches and the log cabin quilt is 12 1/2 x 16/1/2 inches and guess what I still have fabric left. Sorry picture is on it's side and I can't get it to stay the right way around.

Gee fabric goes a long way, now I don't want to make anything else from these fabrics and if you like them and like making small items leave me a comment and I draw a name in a week.

Good luck
Christine

ps. the pens in the picture are the ones Janet wrote about on her blog, I ordered them from the UK and had them in 5 days.

The colors you used in the little quilts are just perfect. You certainly got a lot of mileage out of your fabrics.

Marie said...

What a lovely palette and beautiful quilts - you must be thrilled with the outcome. And I totally agree with you when you say you can't believe how far fabrics go - it makes me wonder why I buy the quantity that I do sometimes. Thanks for the chance to win these beauties and work them into one or two of my projects.

Angie said...

They are great little quilts! I am amazed at how much you can make from small pieces of fabric and still have some left. I would love to give your scraps a new home. :) Happy Thanksgiving.

Maxine said...

Love the little quilts. I am using pinks and browns in my Dear Jane quilt. Sure could use your scraps.

Hi! Greetings from Finland! Your quilts are so fantastic! It's so nice to find other quilters all around the world! :)

Heartsdesire said...

Your little quilts are so sweet. And your choice of fabric is perfect for them. I would love to have the leftover scraps even though I have plenty of fabric. But I do get tired of what I have and want to use something else. Most of my quilts (big and small) are scrappy and scraps work so well with them.

Louise said...

You are so sweet to share so much. Your quilts are absolutely inspiring. What is the club that you belong too - do they accept new people. I too would love the scraps - love mini quilts! Louise

Wendy said...

Christine, your quilts are lovely and the scraps are just wonderful! You really stretched the fabric for a lot of items and then still have some leftover....

Susan said...

I like your little quilts so much. I think fabric can be stretched quite a lot, especially as the scraps "multiply" in the dark of the closet when we're not looking. :)

Yvonne said...

You made some lovely little quilts with those beautiful fabrics. Scraps are always welcome, we save everything bigger than a stamp! You never know when you mind need it....:)
