Monthly Mini and Quilt Exhibit

 The end of the month sure comes quick! 

I pulled out some 4-patches and strips from long-ago projects and in less than 20 minutes I had this month's mini arrangement. So I went with it! 

Love this backing fabric that I picked up on the freebie table at a GSQ meeting over a year ago. There was just enough for this little quilt.

Rachel sent me a new roller pen to try and I'm so pleased with the result--it's Pentel Gel Roller for Fabric. Thanks, Rachel! 

I hung three March little quilts in my sewing space and plan on doing monthly rotations. 
***Quilt News*** 

I am very excited to be part of the Warmth and Beauty quilt exhibit at the Tahawus Center Windows Gallery in the neighboring town of Ausable Forks, NY. Five quilters were chosen to participate in both the online exhibit as well as in-person. Here is a link to the online exhibit. You can click on each quilter's page as well as on each quilt. Morris Hexathon and Dear Daughter will be in the gallery exhibit starting mid-April.
Today Barbara B announced her Ladies' Aid NY Sampler BOM here. I'll be making a NY-style model quilt with repro fabrics and red sashing :)   
Update: Make sure you check out all the other mini-makers this month on Wendy's blog. And, here is a sneak peak of her exhibit at the New England Quilt Museum. Congrats! 

Have a great week!

  1. It is amazing what you can do in 20 minutes! I love it. And, doesn't it feel good to use up leftover blocks. Win, win! Love the back too. I saw your block on Barbara's post this morning and it is beautiful! I am so looking forward to seeing you block each month. I am going to participate this time, but as usual I haven't chosen fabrics yet. Your wall of "littles" is beautiful. And, congratulations on your exhibit! I'm going to spend some time scrolling around! Thanks for the link.

  2. It's always amazing to me how you seem to pull these wonderful minis out of the proverbial hat, but 20 minutes?! And congratulations on the upcoming exhibit.

  3. You whipped up a delightful little creation! Can't believe you can make all the decisions and have it laid out in such a short amount of time.
    That is a very pretty backing fabric.
    Congrats on being in the exhibit. I will be checking it out!

  4. 20 minutes? You are fantastic and like the Energizer bunny. Your leftovers are great together. Congratulations on your participation in the quilt exhibit. Everyone is going to enjoy seeing your quilts.

  5. Your minis look so beautiful together on your wall (and the whole space has a very cozy, artistic warm feel) and I love how this latest mini has sort of a 3-D or layered depth the way you have combined the four patches with the floral running through. Congratulations about being in the quilt exhibit!

  6. Glad you like the pen! Congratulations on the exhibit, but couldn't get link.

  7. Congratulations on the exhibit. I loved seeing your page and I'll explore more of the other this weekend.
    Your two books are wonderful references and I am happy to have both in my home library.
    your mini is sweet and the backing fabric is so neat and perfect for spring.

  8. So excited for you and the exhibit! Sure wish I was closer to attend in person.
    Your little mini turned out really cute and that backing! Yes! I love it!

  9. What a fun way to hang mini quilts! Love the label you made for this treasure!
