Sweetness Mini Quilt

     Well, I'm squeaking in just under the wire with my finish for the Schnibbles Parade, but I worked on this all day and stayed up late (like almost 4am late!!) to finish it up!  I had the pattern already so I figured I really ought to actually do this one, instead of just intending to do it!  :-)

     The pattern is Sweetness, a set of 3 mini quilts in one pattern (quite a deal in my opinion!), by Corey Yoder of Little Miss Shabby.  The pattern is printed up on nice heavy, glossy cardstock, with great color and clear instructions.  I decided to make the Floret Mini since I also have the other two patterns in the larger size and I figured why make a mini and then repeat it in a larger size?   I knew with what I call my "Hobby ADD"  I'd never finish the larger version if I had already done a mini! :-D

    So here is my Floret mini: no name for it yet.  I'm bad at that:  It's a wonder my girls have names!  It's for our trailer, thus the green to match.  I was planning to make it into a pillow, but it's a bit big for that (19x19"), so maybe a table topper.  I'm pretty happy with it.

              And here it is during the chain piecing process!  I thought                 I'd never get done with all those stitch and flip corners!
                         And now I'm off to bed!!  
                                        Hugs to you all!!


  1. It's beautiful Helen!

    Parade on Monday!

  2. Wow, this is amazing, I love the colors. I'd love to be able to quilt, I might take up a new hobby!

  3. It's amazing what you'll do to meet a deadline, if I stayed up that late I would probably sew my fingers together. Your snibble is lovely though, such beautiful colours, and will make a wonderful table topper for your trailer.

  4. Beautiful Helen! And you were so determined to finish! I've been up late working on these, but never made it that far! Congratulations! It's lovely :-)

  5. Oh this is sooo pretty! 19 is a fairly large pillow - but somethings a big pillow is nice. With that said, I would make it into a table topper too - it's really nice. Good to see you post - I've been wondering how you are doing. :-)

  6. Your Floret looks great! It'll be perfect in that adorable trailer of yours, whatever you decide to make it.

  7. Such beautiful colors. I'm glad you have a spot waiting for it, too.
    Quilts of four blocks have always been a favorite of mine although I've yet to make one. Go figure.

  8. I see your blog daily, it is crispy to study.
    Your blog is very useful for me & i like so much...
    Thanks for sharing the good information!
