Mini Quilt Wall

I've participated in a few blog hops lately where I made mini quilts. I intended to put them all up on a wall in my sewing/craft room, and I've finally done just that. There's still room for a few more small projects, whenever I make them, and I've also included a couple of older pieces that I like. Plus, I hung a couple of my dishtowels, (available in my Spoonflower fabric shop) on a bulletin board that was already on the wall.

My work table (which my wonderful hubby made for me) is never this clean, but I had to clear it off to move the table away from the wall and hang things up. It'll be a mess again in no time I'm sure!'s my wall:

Be A Diamond Blog Hop

A big thanks to Carol of Just Let Me Quilt for bringing us this hop!

Here's the list of today's participants:


I've been making mini quilts recently and have done a few for previous blog hops. So, I made another for this hop. I got the idea for the center section from this site. It uses half-square triangles to create a diamond.

Then I surrounded that section with square-within-a-square blocks; the squares on point are more diamonds.

I added a blue border, which came out kind of wonky, some quilting to emphasize the diamond theme, and a red binding.

Here's a picture of the final mini quilt, which measures approximately 21" square.

I love to read your comments, and I'll reply to all comments via email, unless you're a No Reply Blogger.
