Small Quilts

Sometimes smaller is better.

Since moving the Hoosier to another room in our house, I have a little more wall space in my studio to display some of my small quilts.  Some I've made myself but many have been gifted to me by my blogging friends.  I love them all dearly...both the quilts and my friends.  *wink*

So what do you think?  Aren't they so cool?






Life is G-O-O-D!

Happy stitching!

Love the wall of small quilts. I have a pile of them needing quilting and then I'll be doing the same. It seems like a good summer project while sitting on my deck enjoying the sunshine and my garden.
