My Friday Archives


Today I am sharing
my mini quilts.


The first four were made by hand
while on a lake vacation a few summers ago.


I packed up a small wicker picnic hamper,
filled with bits of fabric, trims, laces and buttons,
and sewed for hours each day.


Now that was a relaxing vacation.


These other pieces were all made using a combination of
machine and hand finishing.


I love playing with fabric.


I love playing with color.


I love playing with vintage bits and bobs.


I love repurposing old quilts.


I love party hats.


I love that you took the time to visit today!

Reminder:
Only 2 days
 remain to enter
My October Giveaway!

enJOY Your Blessings,
Kimberly

They are beautiful, each and every one of them. I find hand sewing small fabric collages/quilts so soothing and relaxing.
