mini eight: colors

I showed my Mom and Dad the Snippets quilt I did a while ago with two turnovers. My Dad especially liked it - the even geometry of the layout appealed to him as much as it had to me. So, I had to make a mini version for my tea table.



It was actually a bit easier - I find half square triangles from squares nicer to deal with than starting with triangles to begin with.



My mom helped me out and hand stitched the binding on this and one other quilt. She got attached and has claimed this as hers!


I have the big tablecloth quilt done, but need some non-gloomy weather to get good photos. I know I'm nearing the finish line, besides the fact that I am totally unable to come up with a good name for this little quilt, I went out and bought a bunch of fabrics and patterns for some new projects! I'll share those later this week, too.

How 'bout "Twirling Star Snowflakes" or "Candy Cane Stars"? This is such a pretty pattern. Congratulations on being one day closer and that much more finished!

Aren't moms awesome!

Love it!!! Those half square triangles are great. Sorry, can't help with the name. I'm having my own issues in that department ;-))
