Whew!!  I finally got all my PIFs done and sent out!  And now I can show YOU what I made!

First, this is the amazing mini quilt that Christine made for me.  SOOOOO beautiful, so well done!  Hand appliqué and hand quilted!

And this is what I made!

All three PIFs were slightly different due to print/color placement, but done in the same design.  I am pleased with how each one turned out and am glad to have gotten positive feedback from all three who received them. 

This is a great stash busting project.  EVERY piece I used was a pleasant reminder of previous projects and gifts I had made.

The center is made up of 5” squares.  The floral appliqué is a portion of a design I saw in a magazine (forgot which one, but I’ve seen it around quite a bit in blog land) The finished quilt measured 30something inches square.

The borders were kind of a make-up-as-you-go.  Measure, sew, trim, etc.

I decided to hand quilt each one which is why it took longer than expected.  I enjoyed every second I spent working on these minis!

You both received a very good PIF and made very good PIF's to send on. And using stash for your projects makes it even better. Very prim looking and just my style.

I am thrilled with it as I told you when I received it! AND...I am thrilled to notice on your list today that you played cards with Lissa...how wonderful that she is coming along so well now!
