Mini-Series Monday #8

All In The Family

Omg this was fun to make.  (Oh who am I kidding, these are ALL fun!)

This one seemed to have particularly little pieces.

Of all the quiltlets, this one really felt like a doll quilt to me.  I did one pass of the cross-hatch and it wasn't enough.  So I did a second round and it is fabulously tiny.  It really accentuates the diminutive size of this quilt - 16" x 18.5".  The grid lines are just under 1/2" apart.  (I love little!)

It's going to be the perfect Christmas decoration this year.  My traditional Christmas colors are silver and white with bits of blue. 

I think that's why I went with the blue print for the border.  It's the same print as on the big one, just a different color.

I had a bit of wonky fun with the back again too.  I even included a block leftover from the big quilt. (Top left corner - it got chopped off a bit.)

Next week is the finale episode of Project Simplify - the Mini-Series. 

I know.  Me too.  :(

I love that quiltlet as much as I loved its big sister...and that's a whole, whole bunch! Love, love, love the extra cross-hatching! And love, love, love the backing! When I make that quilt out of Simplify, it's for sure going to be out of Christmas fabrics. It's perfect!!! How are we to the end of the mini's already?!

Ooooooh, this one is so cute! I love the colors and the quilting. I am also a little amazed that pink is not in your Christmas decorating scheme, what's up with that! LOL

I've been looking forward to Mini Series Mondays! Can't you extend it with more minis? Pretty please?

Also, the blocks in the quiltlet are so tiny! Love your precise piecing.

Beautiful quiltlet! Wonderful colours. And that teeny-tiny grid is great. It's sad that this quiltlet festival will soon be over. But surely you have something new and wonderful already on the go to WOW us with ...
