The month's mini was made from Dawn's snowball quilt that I took apart and washed.
Just look at these blues, aren't they wonderful? I ended up hand quilting 1/4" inside each snowball and around the hourglass units.
I had an old Harriet Hargrave blue for the border and machine quilted a double row of stitching around the entire piece.
The back is an old double pink and the finished piece is 15" x 21-1/4".
Wendy's posted her August mini here so be sure and visit. See what other mini-makers have been up to, too :)
On another note . . .
Every once in a while I'll stop at a local antiques shop in Lake Placid and that's exactly what I did yesterday. Here are some pics of the 'vintage' quilts that were for sale.
I also saw . . .
. . . a 1988 framed poster of the Folk Art from the Shelburne Museum exhibit at the National Museum in Washington . . . .
. . . and a framed Mola?? All hand sewn.
But I couldn't leave without buying something! So here's what I got . . .
. . . this Native American weaving . . .
. . . that now joins this one that I bought at the same shop years ago. One more and I'll have a small collection :)
And a small felted coin purse that is new but I simply couldn't resist!
It's hard to believe we're at the end of August and some of the leaves are already beginning to turn.
Enjoy your holiday weekend!
