Repro Mini Quilt – Day 1

Found a photo of this little quilt on the ‘net, and decided to see if I could make my own version of it.  Started this little quilt top about 10:30 this morning, and finished it up (including getting the binding cut and pressed) by 3:15 this afternoon.

Nine-Patch Doll Quilt for April (Day 1)

I really wasn’t going to do this month’s challenge quilt – but the fabric was laying on my sewing table (hadn’t been put away yet). Somehow I went from just sitting there assessing the condition of the sewing room (messy) to being at the ironing board ironing fat-eighth pieces from Barbara Brackman’s 1862 Battle Hymn line. The pattern was from Kathleen Tracy, part of her monthly small quilt challenge to the Small Quilt Talk group on Yahoo.  (if you like small quilts consider joining us!)
