mini quiltPosted: February 19, 2011
another mini quilt, another bear?
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.
