A Mini Finish

Funny as it may seem, considering the size of this mini quilt, I had this quilted by a long arm quilter. Each block has a different quilted "medallion" on it and there are double loops in the outside border. The quilting was done with orange thread and I added the orange binding this afternoon. It is all ready for the quilt show now! I even have the label on! I love the bright colours and how they contrast against the navy sashing and border. (Thanks to my husband for being my quilt holder. He does a great job and is quite experienced!) This quilt was made from leftover HST units from my Carolina Christmas quilt which is still in the piecing stage...

I took this picture this afternoon of a hibiscus flower in my garden. My MIL gave me this bush a few years ago and it never fails to provide a lovely show of these dinner plate sized pink flowers late in the summer.


  1. I love the mini quilt. Good luck with it in the show

    Love and hugs Gina xxx

  2. The quilt is wonderful (LOVE orange) and the flowers are absolutely stunning!

  3. Congrats on the finish! I really like that circular design in the borders.
    The flowers photos are gorgeous!

  4. perfect for fall! now... get back to working on the top in progress ;) funny how the leftover HSTs got into a completed quilt before the actual quilt! LOL

    Love from Texas! ~bonnie
