New Love of Minis

I hadn't blogged on my finished Cotton and Steel or what I received so here it is!



I love it!  And happy to report is was well received by my partner.  This was the first on line swap I had done so there was lots of apprehension on what to make and pick but in the end all good.


I sent along a notebook with a cover and a couple of goodies.

I wanted to do something I had not done before and a lone star had long been on my list.  I had a tutorial pinned.  I think it turned out beautiful and it was pieced in strips.  I did have some issues with my Y seams but nothing a lot of steam and Best Press didn't solve. And it was not nearly as hard or scary as I thought it would be.

In return I received this mini with a sweet note and a couple of treats.  It is now hanging in my sewing home with hopes to add a few more to my wall as I did already sign up for another.


I have made a rule that only one at a time and I have not broken it yet been tempted but don't want to only sew for others so I have to remember to keep a balance.

I have to say I do like making the minis.  So from that same site I also made the Anchor blocks for my hubby for his birthday.  Yeah that was in April and not they were not done in time but they were for the first time at the cottage and they look awesome especially with that Summerville Quilt which I still love.

Aren't those cute?!  They were a little putsy but so worth the effort and love it in some Daysail by Bonnie and Camille.

Thanks for stopping by and will be linking up with the Crazy Mom Quilts, Whoo Whoo It's Friday, NTT, Sew Fresh Quilts.
