No, I am not stopping blogging, but I think I am going to pare down a lot. It will be once again more about a journal, where hopefully, when you have some time you may want to drop in and see what's up. Now I am still my crazy picture taking self so Instagram has really become one of my fave places to hang out. So if you'd like to stay in touch with me there come find me @adejklenck
So, anyway, on to quilts! I made this mini quilt this week as a gift for my bestie Barb. We celebrated her retirement this weekend and I felt she needed a little reminder to get in the sewing studio!
Geometric Sewing Machine pattern from Quiet Play. I love her patterns and man I could paper piece all day long! For this special project I cut into my hoarded stack of Alison Glass Handcrafted. It's the Year of the Stash people! I am having fun using my stash.
Here is Barb and I at the party. I think she liked it :)
I really enjoyed making this little one. I think I am going to make one for myself as well. I am finding mini quilts a great way to display that precious fabric that I get nervous about never seeing again if I use it. Gulp!
See you soon
This Project was on my Q1 Finishes List for the 2016 Finish-A-Long
