I know there are a few more days left in the month, but there are so many link ups at the end of the month, I decided to put this up a little early. I hope you found time to dust off one of those books or patterns or magazines and get inspired.
This was my book for inspiration. There are so many nice pieces in this that I would love to do - will be revisiting this one for sure.
This was the piece that I chose. Small which I love to work with, plus I wanted to challenge myself with those hexies.
And this is the finished doll quilt- (14.5" x 17.5"). It is hard to see, but I hand quilted an echo stitch in black thread around each flower and around the center. And I added a hanging sleeve so it can be used as a mini wallhanging. I did change the pattern ever so slightly as my hexies were a tad smaller than the original, and used a whole cloth center rather that putting those tiny flowers on a square and then sewing the squares together. Since these were smaller, I used a smaller border than the original - to balance it better. AND best of all - the entire piece right to binding and batt and backing - all scraps!!
This month's barn pin charm is the 'Wedding Ring"
Now it is time to link up your project:
