Small Finishes

This weekend, I finished a couple of small quilts...finished, at least, to the "top" stage! They still need to be quilted.

The first is from a pattern called "Bloom" by Renee Plains of Liberty Star patterns. It measures approximately 25" x 29" and was made with 30's reproduction fabrics. It is sweet, and I made this almost entirely from my stash...almost!!

The second mini quilt was a kit I received while at retreat. We had a Brown Bag Swap, were one or more items of $15 to $20 value were placed in a sealed bag, and then swapped among participants! You didn't know what you were getting until you opened your bag!! It was so much fun, and the bags were filled with oodles of quality quilting stuff. My bag contained this kit, a spool of thread, and a package of cute cupcake note cards. The kit is called "Pat's Fresh Farm Flowers" by Pat Sloan. It was quick and easy to make, but I'm still trying to decide how I want to quilt it.

So cute! I'm really attracted to something small now -- have done too much big work lately. It's unwieldy to handle them.

Oh, those are some pretty finishes!! I love applique but I am not very good at it. On my blog you said you made a quilt with the Northern Solitudes from Moda. What pattern did you use? I am thinking but not sure yet....
