Mini Quilt Monday #2


My second mini quilt. It is about 11" x 16" The little hour glass blocks started out as some of the my extra 2.5" squares. (As I work on the nine patches, they seem to be growing in number exponentially!) So, those finished blocks are an inch and a half square.
I usually use Gutermann thread to do the quilting, but this time I used cotton machine-quilting thread. I wanted it to show a little more on the linen.
The embroidery is the first one I did since childhood. I pieced together some of my favorite bits from Aimee Ray's Doodle-Stitching book.
