Finally! Finished my replica of an antique doll quilt I've seen kicking around the internet for a while! Anyway....it was started in June but just couldn't find time to seek the fabrics I wanted to use. I can sometimes remember What fabric I want to use but can't remember Where it is! I spent far too much time seeking fabric and I hope I don't get that urge again! After I had the quilt sandwiched, I found another fabric I liked better for the sashing but did not have the gumption to take it apart!

September was a long month with not much quilting accomplished! I am terribly behind! Got my two machines home yesterday after being serviced and am ready to make one more last pieced strip for my Quiltmania #132 quilt...I rarely name my quilts but really should think of a name for it! BUT the highlight of this post is to show you the darling little quilt gifted to me by Janet Olsen (roguequilter) on her visit 26 Aug! Cannot tell you how honored I am to own one of her quilts...........it's exquisite in every way!! I will treasure it always!

Thought I did not have any new finished mini but I do, if you can count a tablerunner! I made a Courthouse Step runner years ago but my daughter wanted it so I let her have it. Missed it so I made another using random strips from a box that has been accumulating for several years! Then, I decided it should be handquilted and now it is on my table where it belongs!

Killing two birds with one stone here.....always trying to do two things at once! Received a pattern from Pam Buda (Heartspun Quilts) and here is my version of her Teeny Tiny Stars Sew Along! Two inch stars took me longer to make than larger ones!! Check out her blog for Sew Along instructions!

This month's Mini Quilt with Wendy is one that has been in the works for a Long Time, so I just decided to Finish It! Looking at it now, other fabrics I own come to mind that might have been closer to the original. Do you Second-Guess your choices as much as I do? I handquilted with the big stitch as it seemed appropriate for this piece.

This was actually my March Mini that did not make it! So I am sliding in under the wire for April! Felt good to get back into handquilting again! Finished binding last evening!
The basket props are a reminder that in another life I was a basketmaker.....liked mini baskets too! Now to go see what everyone else has made on Wendy's blog! Hope to see you next month with another Finish!

Joining Wendy's Monthly Minis at Constant Quilter blog.
Well, not really That Mini because it is 18" square. Thought about stopping at four blocks but didn't! Might revisit that tho! My quilt is based on a Pinterest photo I found a year or so ago and just loved. Their 4-patches look to be about 2" but mine are 1"......love using the tiniest bits instead of throwing them away! Someone else loved this quilt, too, and made her version of it.....Lori D of HumbleQuilts blog Check it out! Was not able to create links.....sorry.
And just this morning I found a quilt pattern I'd like to try for next month! Love this not working business but will open the shop again in April IF the covid numbers stay down!

When I noticed that Wendy (The Constant Quilter) had added me to her mini quilt list, I thought I had better produce!! Long story on this one is that as you can see, Jo Morton's pattern is dated 1995 and I believe that is when I made the two stars. Well, I either lost them or put them away (you know how that is....can't remember much any more!). Every once in a while they would resurface and I would tell myself to finish the quilt......but didn't! Well, now it is finished and here it is a day late.....finished the binding at 10pm last night!
