my first little mini quilt, made as a wall hanging for my sewing room.
it looks a bit faded, doesn´t it? i totally like that, even though i usually use (and love) bold colors.
it is made of retro / 30s-reproduction fabrics (Modas Hello Betty and Happy Camper) plus some Katie Jump Rope from Denyse Schmidt which fits in nicely ( as binding, too). the wheel is appliquéd on the essex cotton-linen blend, the little frame squares are 1" each.
the quilt is about 55cm² or 21" big.
It is so much easier to quilt a little quilt! Although my lines still are not really straight they are much straighter than on the big quilts.
and i can tell you a secret: the back just looks awful. and i mean really bad.
i used a cheap orange cloth as backing, white and pink thread and sewed on the binding by hand in a very (very!) bad way.
so once it hangs in it place i can never take it off the wall.. :-)
