A Small Finish

It was a neighbour’s birthday yesterday and I decided to turn one of the sunflowers into a small wall quilt as a birthday gift. It measures 8″ square finished. Now I’m contemplating what other small quilts I can make with various Inklingo collections. I know the New York Beauty variations will definitely be in the mix. And suddenly making some small Christmas gifts seems completely within reach. A little quilt like this can be hung almost anywhere.

A scrap of silk batting, a little machine quilting and it was done. I used the fast finish triangles method shown on the Alzheimer’s Art Quilt Initiative for the hanging method. It works perfectly for a small quilt like this.

We had a glorious weekend. The high heat and humidity is gone, leaving lovely warm days and cool nights. This is my favourite type of weather. I wish we could have it all year.

“Gathering Flowers” is today’s Baxtertoon.

Baxter is enjoying surveying everything indoors and out from his perch up high.

  1. What a lucky neighbor! Perfectly done and I bet they loved it!
    Baxter better not be picking flowers on the roof garden!
    That perch just has to be the best investment!

  2. Great finish and a grand idea for gifts….much easier to contemplate completing a small wallhanging than a full-size quilt. That opens up a whole new world of possibilites! Love seeing pics of Baxter on his perch each day!

  3. That’s a great idea for a gift. It would be a good use for those blocks tried that are never going to become a quilt.
    How many hours a day does Baxter spend on his top perch?
