A Little Sewing!


I'm going to blame Kathie from Inspired by Antique Quilts and Vicky from LA Quilter - LOL! They have been making some adorable and fabulous small quilts and have been encouraging me to join them. They have been having so much fun and I decided I wanted to have fun too. :-)


Three small quilts using monthly kits I've received from The Temecula Quilt Co.
Yummy!!!

I've been receiving monthly kits for small quilts from The Temecula Quilt Co for longer than I can remember. When they arrive I admire them and then toss them in my 'to be done someday bin'. I'm going to sort through the bin and get busy - I have some ideas to decorate my home with these little quilts. :-)


Thank you for popping by to visit with me - come again soon.



In Friendship!

OM Goodness Darlene...you have been peeping in my cupboards...I have a stash of "projects in packets" in plastic tubs and other containers just like yours!! I will never have nothing to do in my retirement ....and by then all my projects will be classed as antiques!! :)

The little quilts you have on your design wall are so cute. I love the colours in the one on the LHS.

I Temecula Company and their quilts but have not ordered from them as yet but have followed their blog since I was introduced by Kathleen Tracy`s blog.
Your minis are lovely, it is wonderful when we can have a moment and crack open our treasure chest and work on our findings.

I love the little quilts! And how cool that you can just choose a project from the box and have it finished quickly. Can't wait to see more of your tiny treasures.

Nothing like having something to pull out for a rainy day....Small quilts can lead to big smiles... remember that...

Little quilts are instant gratification...you will love them...and TQC puts together the cutest ones. Have fun.

Vicky said...

I have that same plastic box of packages from TQC! You've inspired me to get in there and sew up some! Your quilts are wonderful!

Joanna said...

I visited the Temecula site and like it very much. Thanks for the link. I can't imagine getting a kit a month - I'd never be able to keep up.

Monica said...

Well aren't those cool? I really like the first one.

I'm going to start doing a few little ones for the shop for when we go to Festival.

Elzaan said...

Those kits are really great fun! And fantastic "in-between-projects" fillers!

Hooray! Happy to see you back and in the sewing room if just for a little while. Have a great day!

The quilts are darling! Yes, it is very hard to read those ladies' blogs and not run off to start a small quilt, too, hopefully just as cute!

Happy Cottage Quilter said...

ha,ha, that's like when I buy new beautiful fabric, for that new next project, and it goes right into the stash ;-) Love the little quilts. They are easy to make and give me instant gratification :-D

sunny said...

Great little quilts! I started cutting out a little quilt a couple of nights ago, but then my attention wandered to another project. I imagine having little quilts all over my walls someday. Can't wait to see your decorating idea. Keep on stitching!

Wendy said...

Your mini's are so adorable, isn't it fun to have those little packages to take out and play with. I love having the little quilts around the house.

Those little quilts are gorgeous!
I find small quilts are perfect projects for the summer... not too big and fast to whip up. I must look up the Temecula Company!
Keep the fun rolling...

Karen said...

So happy you are creating again - these are adorable!

Robin said...

Cute quilts Darlene. I love making the small ones. They are so satisfying and it feels like you are done in a snap compared to a full size quilt.

Quilter Kathy said...

Love the minis you've sewn already, but the photo of the bin with all the unopened treasures... is to die for! How FUN!
