Small Quilts and Cushions I made

I'm slowly working on a quilt but until its finished I won't post a picture...
However, I'll share with you a number of projects I have done over the years.
Mainly cushions and small quilts. Some have been given away but others I have around my home.

This cushion was inspired by the play "Three Sisters" by the russian playwright Anton Chekhov.


For this one, I was given the border fabric and that started the inspiration...

I saw this design in a store years ago and had to make it... used my own handprint...

 This one was done many years ago, when the 1930's type stype fabrics weren't as popular as they are now.  At the time I didn't like these fabrics but decided to still use them to widen my tastes... I have this little quilt on a wall in my bedroom.

 This is a mug rug that I wanted to try out 'blue' work..

 This mini-quilt is made using foundation papers. I have done several of them in different styles but this one I kept for myself...It was quick and easy and I like it very much.

 This is just one panel I kept from a couple of full size quilts with these Japanese dolls.
The doll's dress was made from a cotton dress fabric I had made for myself years and years ago. The quilts have been given as gifts and I never took any pictures of them but this little panel I still have.

This little quilt was also made many years ago and the fabric and pattern were in a kit.
At the time I was discovering Amish quilts and even made a little doll which is somewhere in the house ....

This is one of my favourite miniature quilts. It was made a couple of years ago and it was a gift.
