A Patriotic Mini!

I have been home for a week from my second set of travels for this year.  First week was a sewing retreat with my bestie and the second week was hanging out with family for my first grandsons baptism. 
While on retreat I was standing in line to pay at a quilt store and saw the cutest Mini Quilt.  I decided to start it at retreat.

I used fusible web and hand blanket stitched around the stars.

I stitched in the ditch in the center of the quilt and did a meander in the border.  Lovely navy binding. I decided to do a big stitch by hand around the perimeter of the center.  I think it looks grand.  I am thrilled to have this mini finished and not in the UFO pile.  I like the idea of embroidery more than I actually like doing it.  Mainly because it is slow.  So glad I plowed through for the finish.

Thank you so much for visiting.  Hopefully I will have a few months at home now.  I need to quilt some large quilt tops.  

Until next time



  1. I love every single this about this little quilt! hip hip hooray!

  2. It was meant to be. Here you were on a quilting retreat, saw this cute mini star quilt, and had time to do it start to finish.
