I had plenty of strips leftover from Gypsy Wife . . .
. . . and thought they would look great in a mini like the one above. Thank you, Rachel, for Edyta Sitar's book, Little Handfuls of Scraps :) I love it! Such inspiration!
I made three minis 9-1/2" x 12-1/2" with 1" strips. So quick and easy!
Bright and cheery, too!
The backs. I bought the vintage fabric on the right from Natalie many years ago :)
Perfect together--quilts and books! It was story time at Barnes & Noble the other day to celebrate the 75th Anniversary of Little Golden Books (1942-2017). How I loved those books! Didn't you? These were my favorites. I liked playing librarian and wrote my name and "14 days" on the inside cover of each one :)
On another note, this BIG turkey was in the road when I went out for an early morning walk. It took me a minute to focus on what I was seeing and then I ran back in the house to get my camera hoping a car wouldn't come in the meantime. Luckily there was no car and Mr. T. had moved to higher ground.
He was trying to impress a female that showed no interest whatsoever in his display.
I like to think those colors are Turkey Red and Prussian Blue, lol! I still can't believe his size! Mostly all feathers and fluff :)
Remember when I made some Patch Basket blocks? Well, I'm finally putting them together! Hopefully, I can show you the top next week :)
Yesterday I brought GW to be longarm quilted :)
