I have spent the last month or so mostly working on finishing Quilts in Progress and writing, but I interrupted myself to whip up this mini Eclipse quilt! This project served lots of purposes, but mostly I wanted to test out the templates for the Eclipse pattern to make sure they transferred to the published pattern accurately. The pattern is all ready to go, but I was kind of dumb and didn't take many photos before I sent the quilt to England for photography by Quilt Now. Now I am anxiously (more every day!) waiting for it to return....
Happy October First! It really feels like Autumn here, which is my favorite time of the year. The leaves are changing and there is a lovely crackle underfoot when I walk with Cleo. I am so looking forward to starting some new quilts in October.
I would like to present to you my finished Mini Marcelle Medallion quilt top. It was a goal to finish this in September, and I actually got so charged up, I stayed up late last night to finish the outer border...something I rarely do.
The primary fabrics used on this were a couple of Michael Miller...
In my quest to spend July on my Works in Progress, I have made a little progress on my Mini Marcelle Medallion quilt. I have added the brick-like rectangle border and the solid fabric border, which is white with tiny green dots. I am really happy with how this is coming along: the colors are so cheerful and sweet, and there is just something fun about a tiny quilt. At this stage, it's not too tiny anymore, about 27" square.
I made a full size version of this popular pattern, you can see it Here.
I have said before how much...
