Mini May: Marks for Joyfulness

Hello Paw-Pals,

What me? Step on it? No, not a chance.

Hmmm... I do like it.

Errrr... no, no paws on it. What do you mean?

The Mother made this out of a stitchery the Mother drew for Miss H to stitch, but got a mark on so Miss H refused to stitch it. Very fussy that girl!
So the Mother stitched it - and look at the beautiful flower!
Problem all gone.

Slobbery Kisses,
From Snowy.

Mini May: Dolly Quilt

Hello Peeps,

Today's Mini is the perfect size for a little dolly.

The pattern was designed by Jenny of Elefantz daughter Blossom and can be found HERE!

I think this house block is the coolio-est part of all!!!

And look at the Mother's lovely flowers.  

I love apple trees - and those apples look good enough to eat... although they do look a bit blue...

And of course the Mother used the best kind of batting fabric... LOLLIES!!!

Mini May: In the Strawberry Patch

Hello Paw-Pals,

Ooops, sorry about the late blog post - Miss H came home for the weekend and then she smacked her face into the bathroom door accidentally... she is all okay - just had a headache and a red face.

But now, at last, here is the blog post...

The Mother made this cute little quilt from a free tutorial from Carried Away Quilting.  It was easy to make with one of her charm packs that she seems to have stashed secretly around the place so the Boss doesn't see all the fabric together and realise how much she has!

She used some buttons from her and Grandmothers collection.  Super fun and easy.

Find the tutorial here to try it yourselves.

Sloppery Kisses,
From Snowy.

Mini May: Fancy a Cuppa?

Hello Paw-Pals,

Look what the Mother started doing - a cute tea cup mini quilt.

That pesky sheep is ruining the props!!!

Fancy a cuppa is the question for the Mother's friend whom she made the mini for - not the sheep!

She made 9 little tea cups.
1 with the handle the other way, just to make her friend laugh...

All made using fabric from the Mother's stash.

Yep! I think it will do double duty and be a coat - though I am a boy and it is bright pink!
Don't let that Baa fellow see or I will never hear the end of it!!!

Slobbery Kisses,

Mini May: Bird jenny

Hello Peeps

Isn't today's quilt lovely and cheerful?

The Mother used a stitchery designed by Jenny of Elefantz that Miss H stitched for her in the centre of this adorable quilt.

The Mother then blanket stitched by hand around each heart in the four corners.

The Mother and Miss H often work as a tag team - Miss H is the Queen of hand stitching and the Mother is the Queen of blanket stitching and stitching on bindings - oh, and I am the King of eating chocolate!

Mini May: Moon and Back

Hello Peeps,

I hope you are enjoying this month's theme.
Today's Mini Quilt is a very special one that the Mother made for Miss H.

Miss H and the Mother always say "Love you to the moon and back" and the Mother wanted to capture that in a mini quilt now that Miss H is far away.

(the picture of "the" didn't work)

Isn't it sooo coolio?
And the Mother stitched all the words my machine, which she has never done before.

Mini May: Mini Quilt Swap

Yawn.....I was asleep Mum!.....is it time to get up?   Nope..of course I didn't get my paws on the quilt.....as if......

This is the mini quilt that the Mother made for a swap with a facebook group she belongs to.  She got to send it to a lady in England.   It was a pattern called Spoolie Birds that she bought on Craftsy.  She loves it so much she is going to sew it again and a couple of others and make a bigger quilt with it.

Now is this my best side....?

or what about lying down.......?

Instead of  machine quilting the centre she did some hand quilting in running stitch as if the thread had been unravelled by the bird.....

...and even a needle was stitched on.

All the blanket stitch was hand down by the Mother.
 The lady who received it loved it and it will hang in her sewing room.

Mini May: Star Wars

Hello Peeps,

Today is the first day of the Mini May themed blog posts which is all about mini quilts. And it is also the fourth of May, so...

And it is the perfect day to show you Miss H's Star Wars mini quilt!

Stitcheries designed by Wild Olive.

Miss H did these stitcheries months and months ago but didn't know what to do with them... until now.

They were each framed in dark grey and then surrounded in light grey.

And this is the finished quilt.
Miss H stitched "Star Wars" in chain stitch.

Every Tuesday and Friday from now on for the month of May Snowy or me will be showing a mini quilt.

Pop by this Friday to see the mini quilt that started the Mother's passion/obsession for mini quilts.
