Little quilts....


These little quilts are finished now.....


Light quilting to hold it together but keep them soft....


Binding finished off by hand....



… and another of United Stitches done....

there is always room for kindness in our world....


and I have finished all the blocks for Garden Sunshine (it was a free BOM by Quilt Doodle Designs last year)


with a 4" border in the white it is now in the quilting queue....

In my mini clean up I found 3 more boards that I had glued wadding to, so I glued on the binding this weekend.... 3 more block holders... they are so useful when building blocks and not wanting the bits to move around...
(I used pre-used corflute so you can see the shadow from the printing behind the wadding - gotta love upcycling!!!)


Lori Holt has a lovely free tutorial on making these HERE.  Mine are a slight adaption but the same concept. (me and glue guns don't seem to work well together)

Righto, Gotto Go..... lots to get done this week.... hope you have a great one.....

Beautiful little quilts Fiona, they will be much loved. I am enjoying seeing your stitcheries, and the quilt is wonderful. Had a giggle about you and the glue gun...they can be a challenge!!

Lovely little finishes. Love the one with the Prince because it has a horse on it. (I adore horses.) I love Garden Sunshine too. I didn't know what the end result looked like so I am surprised to see so many block units in it. It so beautiful and "sunny". I love it.
I love your boards. I want some too. I'm happy you shared the link so I can go and make my own. Thank you. (Now, where's my glue gun?) ;^)

Such cute wee quilts...
The free SAL blocks look lovely sewn together..will be another sweet quilt.
I've never made any of the boards but they would be very useful..

Oh so sweet! Your Garden Sunshine quilt is beautiful and I do love your stitchery and such a great sentiment. You are so clever great boards xx

Garden Sunshine is very pretty! Yes indeed......a kind word is never wasted, for sure. Have to admit to not being a fan of the hot glue gun, ut they do seem to work when nothing else does.

The baby quilts are beautiful, love the colors in them. I do wish I had more panels, great idea to use them for charity quilts. One of these days I will go through my stash, I know I have some kids prints.

Aw, so sweet! How big are the little baby quilts? I really like that BOM and the soft colors you chose :)

You got on to those quilts quickly. Good to have them finished.

Hello Fiona,

Well done, you do such wonderful work. Glue guns!!! Mine went into the bin many years ago. Love the free BOM quilt.

Happy days.
Bev.

The little quilts turned our rather cute and I love Garden Sunshine. Maybe I'm biased towards 30s prints. LOL. I agree the mini design boards work well. We also used preused corflute, but spray painted it white first, as ours had quite a dark sign on it. I had to work out how to use a hot glue gun and they aren't the best finish, but they work......very well. I'm sure you will find the extra ones handy.

Love the minis...so cute.
I have the opposite problem - I bought some gorgeous bias tape from your LQS and now cant find the same boards as I had used before..very annoying!

Gorgeous United stitchery - very wise words :-) Lovely little quilts, they'll make some small people happy and cosy. Garden Sunshine turned out beautifully - I love the fabrics you used.

3 lovely finishes in those quilts. I love how you have re-cycled to make something useful.
