A Little Project…

I made this little mini quilt (table topper) using a pattern by Sherri McConnell. Sherri is celebrating the little things this year, and every month she posts a new project on her blog (if you subscribe to her blog, you will have the opportunity to get these patterns for free for a very short period of time, and then they are for sale in her shop on Craftsy).

I love these little flower blocks. I decided to use a mini-charm pack of Savonnerie by American Jane (Sandy Klopp) for Moda. Despite the size of this quilt (17″ X 17″)…or maybe because of its tiny size, this quilt took me longer to make than I thought it would. I took my time to be precise in cutting and stitching and in the end, everything matched up! Yay!

I bound this with some navy fabric from the Glimma collection by Lotta Jansdotter, and used some gold, checked fabric for the back (not sure where I got that).

I quilted straight lines on the diagonal in both directions and was really pleased with the pattern that developed (you can see it best on the back).

You could easily hang this one, but I’m planning to use it on my bedside table as a nice splash of color!

    I never have enough wall space for all the things I want to hang. Bookcases kind of take up a lot of it! Turned out very nice, though. It would look great on a bedside table!
