A mini quilt finish.....

On the second and fourth Tuesdays of each month I participate in a local quilting group.  It is a lovely group of ladies and, we take it in turns to share ideas and projects with the other members.  During the last two sessions of the group a project was shared with us to make the tiniest art quilt (approximately 5 x 5 inches square) that I have ever seen.



I think the inspiration for the project came from the book 'The Art of Embroidered Flowers' by the late Gilda Baron (a book that I will now have to add to my collection!!)   It has been the perfect project to work on as I wasn't very well last weekend and, although feeling better, have been feeling a little 'out of sorts' all week.



The lady who shared the project called it 'Poppy Field' and I am delighted with the finished quilt which is displayed in an empty CD case.  As you can see from the photographs above and below, when you remove the inner section of the CD case a little gap is created at the top of the case, meaning that you can hang the little quilt quite easily.



I definitely think I am going to be having some fun making a few more of these!!

  14. This is so cute!! I'm always amazed by your embroidery skills :-). The CD frame is genius! Have a nice -and better- week! Ariadna.

  15. What an amazing way to display a tiny quilt! And doubly good because the 'frame' uses something that normally gets tossed. Win/win (oh, and there's the added bonus that your little quilt is so cute too!).
