I’m taking time off from photographing all the loot from my 2017 Quilt MN Shop Hop to enter the Blogger’s Quilt Festival.
I made this little mini as part of a blog hop in March.
I was even lucky to find some fabric with cacti when I was in Tucson last winter and used it for the back.
I wanted to show off this quilt one more time because I am pretty pleased about that little mini in the mini.
When I read that it was time to enter the Blogger’s Quilt Festival, I thought you might like to see it again and see how I embellished those saguaros.
You’ll see the simple pattern that I started with, find out more info about this mini including my thoughts behind turning the clothesline posts into Saguaros, and get the links to the patterns on my post here.
If you’d like to see many great quilts on display without leaving your home, please visit Amy’s Creative Side. We’ll be linking up quilts all week so do take some time to see some quilty inspiration.
Size: 16.5″ square
Fabric: The top is pieced with 100% cotton scraps I had on hand. The 100% cotton backing fabric was new but I don’t have the manufacturer info.
Batting: Warm and Natural
Quilted by: Myself using Aurifil thread
If you are stopping by from the Blogger’s Quilt Festival, welcome to my journey where I blog about the things I love to do: quilting, traveling, and eating (cooking and baking actually but that didn’t sound as good in the title). I recently returned from a 10 day trip around Minnesota shopping 66 quilt shops and blogging about it. I hope you’ll check out some of those posts. The post giving you a sneak peak at all the loot I bought is here and contains links to the others which includes a featured shop each day. If you enjoyed what you read, I hope you’ll stop back again. To make it easy, please follow me; you’ll find a number of ways on my sidebar: email, WordPress, Bloglovin and Facebook.
What I Learned Today:
- I have a lot of loot to photograph, organize, and find places to store. It’s time to move it out of the guest room.
- I miss seeing this little mini. It’s at our other house.
- As the weather turns colder, our thoughts about our other house in Arizona increase.
Question: What have you been working on this week? I’m getting caught up with my bee blocks, working on the next block for the I Wish You a Merry Quilt-A-Long as well as making blocks one and two that I am behind on, and photographing and writing the loot posts. I also want to get a good start on my Art with Fiber project that is due in October. So much to do, so little time.
Thanks for stopping by and do come again.
