-little mini-

I finished a little mini to enter into Amylouwho's Mini Challenge!  I stitched these little girls over the summer when we were on vacation.  I knew I wanted to make a mini quilt with them to hang in my girls' room, and this challenge was the perfect motivation to finish this project up!  These two little girls come from an embroidery pattern by Cathy Gaubert.  I changed the little girl on the left a little bit to look a little more like Felicity.

I kept the quilting simple- just added some simple straight lines at an angle using some light pink thread.

I used a red Kona to outline the embroidery, but I am not super pleased with how "bold" it looks.  I don't know.  I guess, I didn't hate it enough to change it. haha.  

Here it is hanging up in the girl's room by their window seat.  The cute little hoop above it was made for me by Darci in The Scrappy Hoops Swap!

I feel like I have gotten out of my sewing funk over the past couple of weeks- finally!, and I have been working on lots of projects big and small!  So, I am hoping to pop on here a little more over the next week or so to show you all what I have been working on!  


  1. This is beautiful! You do wonderful sewing and quilting and have a good eye for color and coordination.

  2. This is wonderful! I love redwork...well, all embroidery and your's is very nice! I think the red kona to outline the stitched panel works great.
