"Sundrop in Summer" Mini Quilt
In fleeting spare moments over the last few days, I have been having fun making this little mini quilt.
I particularly enjoy quilting mini quilts because they are easy to move around, I can quilt with as much detail as I like.
I embellished with french knots on this fussy cut piece of Nicey Jane.
And I used my "Evening Primrose" linocut. When I carved this design, I thought that the flower was an Evening Primrose but apparently, it is a Sundrop. The two flowers look nearly identical but open at different times of the day. For the purposes of this quilt, which was intended to be bright and cheery and summery, I will call it a Sundrop! I also added one of my scallop design linocut covered buttons. The binding is mostly white but it has a tiny section of Nicey Jane in the binding on the right. Do you see it? On the back, I centered my "During Quiet Time" label on that bit of scrappy binding. I love little touches like that. I am not sure if they please anyone else but they please me!
