Mini Quilts

Here are some little mini quilts I've been working on while watching the football/soccer this week. They're on their way to Missouri, Washington, DC, and France, respectively (so if you live in one of those places, you might not want to scroll down through this post!). The first is an apron (just in case that's not obvious). The other two are inspired by other items in my kitchen at all times: olives and licorice. (I don't eat them together, don't worry!) If you click on the second two photos, you can see that I'm playing around a little with pearl cotton.



If you've been hunting for a copy of Gwen Marston's Liberated Quiltmaking, you might want to head over to Tonya's blog for information about a possible reprint. (Here she compares Liberated Quiltmaking to Collaborative Quilting.) She's gotten a tremendous response so far!

Oh my goodness I love all three of these. I wish I lived in one of those three places.

I love the black and white fabrics in the last one, especially the cat paws print.

Great little quilts! I can't understand how an important book like that went out-of-print. I guess that it was a little bit ahead of its time, or perhaps it was such a trailblazer.

I'm a bit behind with my blog reading, your quilt for Kate's swap is very cool. The aprons were beautiful, and I love the one you sent. The minis in this post are very cute too.

Fabulous mini quilts. I haven't made any yet. Right now I am adventuring in making post cards. It is on the list though. Thanks for sharing yours.
