my ornate quilt

You might have spotted and guessed which mini quilt I was working on in my last post.  Yes, I know you scour every inch of all my posts looking for all the tiny details, ha, right.  Anyway, I finished up the binding this weekend and it’s a keeper!  I decided it’s going in my sewing/playroom space to stay.  I’m excited to finally hang a quilt on the wall, I haven’t done that before, but I may become addicted, just a warning.

It’s Christina [The Sometimes Crafter]’s lovely pattern that she originally surprised us with at Sewing Summit.  It’s now available in her shopOrnate Mini Quilt Pattern, it would make a really great Christmas present if you’re thinking ahead.

I really enjoyed the curves, she gives tons of great tips in the pattern, so don’t be worried about whether or not you’ll be able to do it!

If you want a little taste of Liberty, you can’t go wrong with the mini rainbow bundle, put it on your Christmas list!

    wow, it looks fantastic on the wall! I’ve never made any minis to hang on our walls either, I should really do that soon… well, probably after the holidays :)

    I love this! The quilting makes it look very mid-century mod. I bet it looks great in your house!

    oh it’s beautiful; such a treat for the eyes. i’m planning on hanging my swoon block on the wall, once i have a spare second to get the darn binding on. did you add little pockets to the top back corners to hang it with?

    It reminds me of ripples on a river with splashes of Liberty- so pretty Anna

    It’s really beautiful. Love the quilting and the colours you used.

    I love it Anna! And look how pretty it looks in your space. :) I have this same Liberty bundle and REALLY wanted to make an Ornate quilt from it and just haven’t done it yet. So happy to see that someone else did. Such great fabrics for this mini. I love making mini’s for my walls, it’s such instant gratification and really makes the space inviting to me. I hope to see you make more. :)

    Love it! Seriously, that is gorgeous! It’s so much fun watching all of you come back from Sewing Summit with these great new projects. I am praying that I get to go next year. 😉

    Very pretty, anna. I have been hoarding my rainbow Liberty bundle for over a year now…can’t wait to make a little something just for me from it, EVENTUALLY! Good thing fabric doesn’t have an expiry date 😉
