Mini Quilt

 

Here’s a little mini quilt I made for myself.  I needed something pretty to look at while I sew.  The idea for these blocks came from one of my favorite quilters, Red Pepper Quilts.  I love how colorful Rita’s version is, but I wanted a more monotone pallette for my wall.  Blues are calming, and I am in love with the binding fabric (Art Gallery “Wallpaper”), so I chose fabrics around that main print.

Here is an updated picture of one corner of my sewing room (old pics of the room can be seen here):

The hanky hanging above my shelf belonged to my Great Grandma Nonny (Nonny was her nickname).  I shared her first, middle and last name for 21 years of my life, until I took on my husband’s last name.  Nonny always had the best jewelry and loved to spoil her great-grankids with lots of candy.  My aunt still swears that up until the day she passed away she never once dyed her hair, and it was pretty well jet black until that day!  Here’s my Nonny holding me as a baby, man I was a chunker: 

Hope that you had a lovely Easter, He is Risen! 

I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.

  2. I love the mini quilt! I’ve been wanting to do something similar too . . . it sure would be nice to have something sewing-relating decorating my sewing space! Love the story about your great-grandma too🙂

  3. Sarah,

    Nonny loved that you had her name! She was a lovely woman, and would be so proud of you if she could see you today!

  4. Nice sewing decoration. I need to do that too! Love that blue fabric. I like that you have something sentimental up on the wall. I have things from a special grandmother who used to sew. . . I hadn’t thought to put it up on the wall.
    He has risen indeed!

  5. I love that quilt, and the binding fabric is fantastic. I have been reading your blog for a couple of months, and you make some great things. I always get excited when I see a new post from you.
