More Minis



This lovely piece was from my 12" Mini Swap partner Peg of Happy in Quilting,  Wrapped up so nice (saving that tiny dot grograin ribbon) and a cute little reindeer ornament.  A sweet card - my first Christmas card!  I just love this and it fits my decor so perfectly.  Thank you Peg. (Did you notice those tiny buttons eyes? Squeel!!)


And the next mini from Konda's Mini Quilt Along - worked up so quickly.  An 18" Criss-Cross Applesauce done up in a Bernatex "Heritage" prints charm pack.  Now to find a backing, binding - know how I want to quilt it. 


And I did hang my Sulky Wonky Christmas Village - 30" x 36".  This has beads and metallics in it, so I can't really press it - my SIL is going to bring down her steamer and maybe that will straighten it out.  For my new followers, this piece was finished when I first started blogging and one of my first paper-pieced projects.  This is to be a project to share with my grands - decorating a house each year.  I have my box of little 'goodies' for when my grandsons visit next.  Maybe they will work on Santa's Workshop this year.

CLOSING THOUGHT

We were in the 60's yesterday!  BUT overnight, a suddon drop, rain and wind, and then wonderous snowflakes.

  4. They're all wonderful! It's nice to hear you like the snow, most people complain but for me I love it, of course I don't actually have to live with it,LOL. Have you tried hanging the quilt blocks on a skirt hanger in the bathroom? It may take a few showers, but it's worked for me.

  10. All your minis are so fun! We were warm, warm, warm yesterday. Windows open warm. Almost ready to turn on the a/c warm! LOL! My sisters and I had a lovely getaway weekend and took the bus to NYC on Sunday -- it was very warm there, too. Hard to appreciate all the Christmas stuff when temps are in the 50s/60s! :)

  19. I wrap my small Christmas quilts around a foam noodle (made for swimming pools). I cut it to fit the largest of the small quilts. They don't wrinkle now.

  24. Thanks for sharing this post again. Your Village looks like such a fun project. I'm wondering what it looks like now that you've had a couple more years to decorate the houses.
