A Miniature Quilt

 

I stumbled upon the Blogger’s Quilt Festival.  Yes, it could be that I’m clumsy but this was a happy stumble…..Join in on the fun:

There were no size requirements in the rules so this little guy is one of my favorites. 

I had become friends through the internet with a book author by the name of Toni McGee Causey.  She has a series of 3 books and as a thank you for sending me an advance copy of her 2nd book, I decided to make this sampler for her.  Each block represents the theme of each book.  The first block is Queen’s Crown.  The 2nd is Diamonds and the 3rd is an old version of Lover’s Knot. 

Oh, by the way,  the blocks finish at 3 3/4”.  So in the 1st block, the little squares in the 9-patches are 1/4”.  I did not use paper piecing.  It was an enjoyable challenge.

You and I are side by side on the Quilter's Festival list, so I'm happy to be the first to comment on your adorable little quilt.
What a brave soul you are -- such small pieces and no paper piecing. It's lovely!
