A Teacher’s Gift & My Second Mini Mini Quilt


I made the above pouch as part of CT’s teacher gift this year. I also included an Amazon gift card and a note telling her just how much we loved her! We really did too. She was the best teacher we could possibly hope for as CT’s first.

I really hope next year is just as pleasant. I guess only time will tell.

MiniMiniQuilt_HST_001I had a few leftover half square triangles from the above pouch, so I cut them down to 1″ each and quickly pieced together another Mini Mini Quilt as part of Make Modern Magazine’s contest (that I talked about in the last post)

This thing measures only 2.5″ square and I hand quilted the entire piece. I needed the practice as you can see.

I have a lot more on my plate now, than I did a week ago, so this will be the last Mini Mini Quilt for a little while. Keep checking back though, I have a lot of other stuff up my sleeve these days!
