mini quilt

lemme guess.

another mini quilt, another bear?

yes, indeed.

it’s still winter and i’m still hibernating and hibernating = bears. 

used some of that hand stamped fabric i hand stamped several years ago.  i had intentions of making a pillow back then, but sometimes the urge hits you to make a bear mini quilt and you just have to go with that urge.    

i’m also experimenting with not having perfect little stitches and that is a HARD thing to do.  when i browse the web and look at other people’s work, the quilts that catch my eye  are the messier, less-than-perfect quilts.  i can’t figure out what makes something look “artsy” vs. what makes something look like it was done by someone who has no clue how to use a needle and thread, and therefore amateurish.  is it a combo of good stitches and messy stitches?  good and messy is what i tried here.


this one’s smaller than the ones i’ve been making recently.  8″ x 10-1/2″.

(this is another example of using a photo of a bear as a template, although it kind of resembles a man in bear suit.  and that makes me laugh.)

also – if you’re asking yourself, “is there any difference between a mini quilt and a potholder,” well, i cannot answer that.
