Another little mini quilt....

have seen the light..:O))

Worked with my oranges...
which was FUN... :o)
But I worked Toooo fast for my own good... 
having Dad ill right in the middle of this quilts birth...
 and a deadline to keep.. 
so I delivered this quilt to my friend Åsa who had her birthday last Sunday ... 
Unfinished... or kind of.. :o)

Even the photos came out blurry so You have to live with that
.. or just scroll pass them..lol..

The pattern is a Cheri Saffiote Payne pattern (Again) :O)
from the magazine Primitive Quilts....

I used velvet to the pumpkin
  manchester to the flower centers...
 added a Happy Birthday text instead of the original text
 and here comes the OOOPPPSS!!!!

Forgot to add the berries!!!!
Stupid me...
And all the time while sewing the binding on.. I talked to myself... remember the buttons.. remember the buttons!!!!
Did that help!! 
NAH!!! :O)
 So when Åsa packed up her gift I didnt see it( nor she)  either.. but after a while when sitting there drinking tea...
I saw IT!!!!! BLUSH!! 
Happily we could laugh at it.. and she promised to sew on some pretty red buttons...
PHEWWW!! :O)

(Note to self:
DONT RUSH!!)

So here it is.. a little quilt without it´s berries!! :O))
See you all soon...
I hope.. 
Christmas is coming.. and this year I 
MUST try to have gifts ready before Christmas!!!!
:O)

  2. It's just gorgeous, even without the berries! I've done that before - made a birdhouse/cat wallhanging for my sister years ago, and forgot the yo-yo flowers going up the stems!! To this day, they are still missing.

  4. So lovely, Stina! I am working on the same one only in wool! How's that? I love Cheri's patterns. I had to take time out to make a quilt for a young friend who's been in the hospital, but I need to get back at mine so that I finish it up.

    Hope you dad gets better soon.

  8. Wonderful, Stina! I hope to make one from the same pattern but I don't think it will be this fall. I like how you took a fall quilt and put your own look to it with putting in some of your favorite lighter colors.
