My Penelope Mini!!

 So last year at the Quilty Friends Retreat , along with teaching a few classes, I also took one.  It was the Posh Penelope class taught by our amazing local quilt shop owner Kim!!!  The class was oh so much fun!!!  This is a pattern by Sew Kind of Wonderful that uses their Quick Curve Ruler ;)   I finished one block in class and now it is almost a year later, the Quilty Friends Retreat is next week, and we take what we worked on the previous year and share . . . and this is what I am sharing!!!

Yup, I took that one block from class and made it into a mini.   I knew I just didn't have time to make this into a giant quilt, and so I purposely made it my favorite purple so I could turn it into a mini to add to my sewing room wall.   And yes, although I knew for a year that I was going to make this into a mini, I actually quilted and bound it yesterday.   Nothing like a sharing deadline to get something done ;)  But doesn't it just look so cute next to my machine. 

It will be fun to share this next week, especially standing next to Barbara with her Queen size version!!!  I am just so excited for this Quilty Friends Retreat!!  I just miss teaching so much.   The classes will be a little smaller to allow distancing, and we are all wearing masks, but it is still just going to be amazing to get to sew with people again.  I can't wait!!!

I hope you all are having a very Happy Quilting Weekend!!!
Pin It!


  1. That is so cute Melissa!!! The black border was a great choice! It looks like the piece is framed!!!

  2. I love this! It’s the perfect mini quilt.

  3. Well done! I love it! And, it looks great on your purple wall. I can see that seeing it will bring you joy everyday as you sit down to sew. (Looks great with your scrappy basket, too!)


Thank you so much for your sweet comments. I just love hearing from you!!
Have a Happy Quilting Day :)
