From time to time, I find myself just needing to focus on a small project with comforting and cozy colors. In this particular case, I had some parameters…it cannot be more than 16 in. wide.
Where do you find a quilt that size?
If you are familiar with Jo Morton, you can find them in her books. She now has 3 books out with her “Little Favorites.” These little quilts are wonderful as decorating tools.
The pieces go together pretty quick as I assembled this one in less than a week, working sporadically…one day for an hour, one day for two hours, etc.
The satisfaction comes from finishing something that looks nicely put together in no time.
I’ve been on the hunt for hangers and ways to display these little quilts. I found a gentleman at Quilt Fest in Madison who sells every imaginable type of quilt hanger.
I found a couple of things I liked but I’m sure I’ll go back to him as a resource. Just be sure to pay attention to measurements otherwise you’ll be fudging the sleeve and squishing your quilt.
Enjoy the process, because nothing warms up a house in the fall like a quilted accent. That and some apple pie.
