This fall, my sister and I are going to Argentina to visit my parents. They are on a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and have met so many wonderful people.
As a “Thank You” to the people who have opened their homes and hearts to my parents, I want to give them a little something.
I thought about pot holders and mentioned this to my mom and she said “Oh, they won’t use them, they will use them as a decoration.” So I thought I would make mini quilts instead.
I haven’t quilted them yet. . . I would like to hand quilt them, but I don’t think that will be feasible considering the time restraint.
All the fabrics I’m using are leftovers from a previous project (no pic!) So I’m using my stash!!

I got another snowflake done for Jane’s Quilt Around the World Christmas group, I really like how this turned out. Jen didn’t want green or reds, she wanted winter colors like blue and purple.
Jen sent along the purple with silver snowflakes, but I ran out. While shop hopping last weekend, I found the Fairy Frost (Michael Miller) in purple to finish it up.
Speaking of shop hopping – I WON something!
I entered at the world renowned Harriet Hargrave’s shop.
Yes, I am lucky to live 20 minutes from her shop and it’s fan-tab-U-lous!! I even got to chat with Ms. Harriet and her talented daughter, they do amazing stuff with cotton and thread!
