Believe it or not, my machines are both tucked away in the closet. The ironing board has been collapsed and the cutting mats are tucked under a coffee table. It almost, almost looks like there isn't a quilter/fabric hoarder who lives here!
It seems like a good time to revisit those fabulous Mini Mini Quilts once again! The little tiny works of art. Each one beautiful. Each one special.
My oh my how this collection has grown! I jumped on the band wagon with both feet and it was worth it...just look at that collection!
My A Simple Solution : Something Had To Be Done!, filled up so fast!
It didn't take long before it was over flowing with delightful mini mini's! I knew it would happen. At the time I made this frame, I had numerous mini's in the pipeline.
Funny how all the work on quilting the background of the frame is lost with so many mini mini's!
This time of year makes me want to organize, rearrange and clean up. I started in my tiny office with the bulletin board. It seemed like a great place to admire and show off the over flow of mini's. I'm still cleaning up this board, but you see where I'm going?!
The mini craze may be slowing down, but I don't think it will stay that way. This time of year you gotta focus on other things. I hope to make a few more after the first of the year.
Take a look at some of these beauties I received:

Swapping was new to me this year. I always wanted to sign up and give it a try, but I never quite got there...then I saw this craze starting up! (thank you Yvonne @quiltingjetgirl for getting me hooked!) No pressure, no sign ups, no rules really. Something I could get behind in a big, well...little way!
Here's a few I whipped up for trading!
|My very first mini mini's!|
I just want to thank every one who participated in swapping with me! It was so much fun! I love each and every little bitty quilt I received. They are truly little works of art and I'm thankful that I have pieces of each of you!
