And now for the last episode of Project Simplify, the Mini-Series.

Dream Big - or Little (15.5" x 17.5"), as the case may be.

As with the big one, this quiltlet (love that name!) is borderless.  I had just enough scraps to eke out this little one.

Because it's so small, I didn't scrap the binding like I did on the big one.  But my stash didn't let me down and I found a perfectly cute polka dot cream from another Fig Tree line - Mill House Inn - that was perfect for the job.

And I'm totally digging this teeny tiny flower / swirly twirly FMQing that I've done on 2 other quiltlets here and here.  I think it's my favorite FMQ design.

Big and little.

And once again a little back fun. :)

Ok people, stick a fork in me I'm done.  I'm pretty sure this is it for Project Simplify.  It's time to draw the curtains and turn off the lights for this ... wonderful thing that has been so much fun for me and hopefully for you.

Thanks again to all of you who commented throught the process of me sewing my way through Camille's book - twice.  You've inspired me, encouraged me, taught me and best of all, made me laugh.  Seriously, you guys are hilarious. :)

Ok wait.  This sorta sounds like I'm quitting my blog ... I'M NOT!  Wild horses couldn't drag me away from my sewing machine & computer.  I'm just saying good bye to Project Simplify.  Kay?  I'll be back tomorrow with more FW blocks.  Promise.  As long as at least one person out there in Inter-Web-Landia has a decidedly inexplicable taste for my silliness, I'll be here.

Besides, since one of my best bloggy friends (who has an amazingly beautiful blog) just taught me how to make these very cool photo mosaics, I need an excuse to make more. ;)

I've got a tear - I'm so sad - the mini quiltlet episodes are over. sigh!!! No, don't worry about me - seriously, I'll survive - Mondays won't be the same but don't fret. I'm going to go cry for a bit - I'm overwhelmed with sadness. Bigger Sigh!!!!


Congrats to all the winners! :-)

November 14, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterDarlene

I hope the winners will post pics of the finished projects. I always enjoy seeing how others make something.

LOVE your photo mosaics. Now that you're finished with project Simplify, what's next? There must have something with a theme in mind, yes?! You'll need that to make more mosaics!

November 14, 2011 | Unregistered Commentermary

Ah, the end of an era. Don't worry, you'll still have visitors. Haven't you heard - there's a pool going on what crazy scheme you'll come up with next ;)

November 14, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterNic

I have loved following along with you as you made your way through Project simplify - the big and the little versions. So much so that I bought the book and have made 2 very masculine print versions of Little Man. Love them! And love your blog - you always make me chuckle and of course, I'm curious to see what you'll next be working on!

November 14, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterDonna

All so lovely. Can't wait to see what you have up your sleeve! I hope it's a post about a cute wallet! xo

November 14, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterPam

I love your silliness! My husband is picking up Simplify at the post office as we speak because of your blog (along with three other books!). Keep it up.

November 14, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterTracey Holzer

I'm sad to see this project be finished, but I am sure that you will provide us with a lot more inspiration and fun with new projects! I love the mini's, in fact, it is impossible to pick a favorite!!

November 14, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterDana

*sigh* Just makes me so happy. Love. Them. All. Thanks for making my Mondays.

November 14, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterCamille

Oh so sad. The end of an era. They're all so beautiful! Excellent work Ms. Pretty. I can't wait to see what you come up with next.

(And sorry I haven't responded to your e-mail -- WooHoo!!! I'm SO excited for you!!!)

November 14, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterThimbleanna

Congrats to all the winners (I'm crying as I type that - I so wanted to win!!) It must be very satisfying (if a little bit sad) to have come to the end of such a major project. Look forward to seeing tomorrow's FW blocks (I must remember to do mine!!)

November 14, 2011 | Unregistered Commenterfrayedattheedge

I love them all! I guess you can continue to share your FWQA??!! ;0

I saw the Happy Zombie decided she had made enough of those blocks and it was time to move on. :)

November 14, 2011 | Unregistered Commenterina

Cant wait to see more FW blocks...all your work is so lovely.

November 14, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterKimwithak

So sad to see Project Simplify come to an end....but I think you will always have great things for those of us who follow your blog! You must have made Camille very proud with your versions of her beautiful patterns!

November 14, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterTami

Although Project Simplify is what made me a reader, I have no plans to stop! I've really loved Mini Series Mondays and can't wait to see what you do next. :)

November 14, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterCarmen

Yay for silliness!

Thank you for showing off those mini quilts that make me want to sit down and do some of my own in my mind things.

You inspire this beginner to leap knowing my scraps may catch me but countless sites like your own, and others, will have a solution for me and my bound to happen stumble. :D

I can't wait to see what else you will do next. Of course, this goes without saying, I love seeing the silliness here. It's like home to me.

November 14, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterKristen

Count me in! I'm not going anywhere! I am feeling a little sadness, though, at the end of Project Simplify. Like coming to the last page of a great book that you don't want to end... you hate to put it down.... thanks for sharing... it was much fun to watch all that you did! I want to do my own - both large and small... another on my huge list of things to do! :O) Cant wait to see what the ol' Farmer is up to tomorrow... hee... still trying to get that last image out of my mind. ;oD Have a great day!

Congratulations on finishing project Simplify!!, Love reading your blog, I'm about to start a couple of Camilles Quilts from her book. Any chance of a tut on photo mosiacs, I've always wondered how you do that. :) Mandy

November 14, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterMandy Foot

I have to tell you I have been visiting your blog on a daily basis for quite a while now. Actually I've watched most of your Project Simplify. Dropped in purely by accident and was so taken by your beautiful Header that I kept coming back. On days you didn't post I just sat here and stared at the picture...yes, I'm weird that way, LOL, but something about it just speaks to me. I think it's the simple beauty of it all. Anyway, since it is the end of PS, I thought I'd better at least say 'Thank You'. I have enjoyed it so much and plan to keep coming back. Hugs...

November 14, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterNancy in Utah

love your work camille has developed some beautiful quilts that you have given a whole new look

November 14, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterHelen

I'd love to see your version of the swoon quilt in miniature. Craizee Corners blog has done one block and it's so cool. You seem to have a knack with miniatures. Keep them coming! I love it.

November 14, 2011 | Unregistered Commentercharlotte

I just can't believe how much you manage to get done, and your execution is just so perfect. Dang girl! When I get some time I want to do one of those plus quilts, those are my favorite of yours. You are such a true talent, Krystine, I'm so psyched to be one of your best bloggy friends!!! xo amy

November 14, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterAmy

I am so happy to have found your blog and these little quilts!. I love Camille's book and now I have a way to actually finish some of them. :-)

This final quiltlet is downright dreamy. Thanks for all the wonderfulness of the quiltlet version of Prdoject Simplify. And of course we'll all stay tuned for whatever comes next at Pretty By Hand. Thanks for sharing and for all the pretty stuff and the inspiration!

Your blog is soooo fun! I am always impressed and never tire of your photos. Your whole "Simplify" big and small project, was a very creative thing to do. And your displays are quite attractive.

November 15, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterBeverly

I have really enjoyed seeing the projects you are creating. I bought the book and have started my "going through simplify"... Thanks for sharing you projects.

November 21, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterJean

Hi Kristyne!

I love following your blog! I love your simplify projects.. It made me want to follow your steps as well. Your quilts are always adorable.

BTW.. I love your Farmer's wife update and quilts as well.. Although I have not started mine.. you inspire me so much!

When I start my simplify project, I'd link my updates with your blog if you don't mind.. But so far I have only done one quilt from Simplify.. hehe..

Keep up the wondeful projects! We love it!
