So as you can tell from my last few posts, I have been on a bit of a letter kick ;) And if you remember from a few weeks back I shared a Crazy Patch tutorial and at the end showed an A and an L letter block I made with the crazy patch pieces I made. Well, today I get to share them all quilted and bound :)
These two minis' were made for two very sweet friends of mine and delivered at market. Two friends who deserve so much more than a mini. They are the greatest!!! You can probably guess who they were for by the embroidery :)
The L is for Lissa, or Moda Lissa as most know her by. She has been a constant support of my over the last few years. She has opened opportunities for me and always been a cheerleader in my corner pushing me to bigger and brighter things. She is an amazing women and a cherished friend. Love ya Lissa :)
And the second if for sweet Amy. I am truly grateful for the friendship I have created with Amy over the years. She is the one gal I know I can go to when I need to "keep it real". Our email chats are cherished and I go back to them often in times of frustration or doubt. You are a rockstar Amy, Love ya!!!
I had so much fun making these 2 mini's. I quilted them with a tight zig zag on all of the seams of the scraps and some straight line zig-zags in the back. I love how it really made the scraps pop ;) And I even did a bit of hand-stitching. I know, crazy, huh :) But I won't show you up close of that. I am still the worst hand quilter out there, by far ;) Now I totally want to make a little Happy Quilting Banner in purple to hang in the sewing room. So fun, another thing to add to the list ;)
Oh, and I just thought, wouldn't little letter mini's be so fun for teacher gifts??? I need to write that in my next year calender so I don't forget ;)
Have a Happy Quilting Day!!
