Minis Month

August is quickly turning into a month of mini quilts, first there was this one that I so enjoyed making I just had to try again


My attempt at a Celtic Knot, and the back is almost as good !

   
Finishing  at 15 inches square, it was another fun personal challenge.


Just a little larger at 29 inches square, another red & white mini


  Both are waiting for binding, and there is a reason for this  -  I'm scheduled to go into hospital mid September for a knee replacement, so I'm trying to organise some sewing whilst my new knee settles down.  Now we all know about my aversion to hand sewing, so I thought stacking up some binding might be one way to keep occupied.

There is actually a third finished mini, but I can only show you a sneak peek of it at the moment as it is on the way to my swap partner in the Doll Quilters Monthly Group,  and I know she follows my Blog :-)

 


As the weather continues to be in the 30s most days, it's been great working on these smaller quilts rather than wrestling under a full size project - and my display wall is filling up nicely !

The Celtic Knot is wonderful. I love the texture.

The "tease" is great. I really like the fabric choices for the interlocking squares.

Such beautiful quilting! I especially love the Celtic Knot.

I also love the pictures of Brittany. I lived in Rennes for a few months, as well as parts of Normandy and Paris years back. So it brings a smile to my face to see familiar places and settings.

Good luck with your knee.

What precious little quilts and I'm with you on hand quilting but it will be good to have something to work on after surgery. Thanks for sharing.
