As I was finishing up with purple this week, I decided to cut a couple 2.5 inch squares out of each of my favorite prints of the month.
It was easy to hand-piece them into this little patchwork mini, and I finished it off with some hand quilting. The binding is just the backing folded around to the front and stitched down.
I've made a series of these, starting last fall, with seasonal prints or colors of the month. They all measure about 6 x 8, except for the Christmas one, which started with some bowtie blocks from the orphan drawer. It was made with 3 inch blocks, so about 9 x 12.
So, now the angels have their own purple quilt!
Meanwhile, I'm back to the teacup embroidery design. Now working on little pink flowers and a sweet bee.

Wow…you’ve added lots of stitches to your embroidery and it’s looking very pretty! Fun RSC projects too. I guess we are pulling out our orange scraps in August.
Your embroidery is coming right along and looking great.
You have a nice pile of minis. The angels seem to love the purples! I love the addition of yellow to your embroidery, it's looking so pretty.
the blocks make nice fast and colorful mats!! love them
I like your little quilt. Your embroidery is so pretty. Enjoy your stitching.
Your embroidery is so cute. It is looking more beautiful each new week as you are adding new stitches to it. Those mini quilts are lovely. Are you hand piecing them?
Both wonderful projects! Love the stitchery. I do admire you for being able to hand quilt, I cannot do that.
I love your teacup embroidery.
That embroidery is adorable!
Those little table toppers are so pretty. Beautiful embroidery, enjoy!
I adore the little hand pieced, hand quilted mats! I just bought some yardage of the Tula fabric you used for the purple mat backing - I love it! And your embroidery is just beautiful!
The little hand quilted mats are lovely, along with the beautiful embroidery! Hope you have a great week!
Very cute table toppers mini quilts! It was a smart idea to fold the back piece to the closing edge! I will remember that idea. Thank you for sharing! Your embroidery is very cute! Happy stitching!
