LITTLEST

Every once in a while a fabric line comes along that I NEED.  When I first saw Littlest,  I knew some pieces would be coming home with me.

The border print was perfect for a version of a quilt I first saw here .  It's funny how things stay in our heads until the time we can make them


This little quilt top works up very fast. An afternoon would do it  : )  I think I will chop a couple of inches off the top so there isn't quite so much open space


The sweetest little border print


batting and backing have been chosen. Now to baste and get quilting !

Remember the jam I was going to make with my future daughter in law?  We made dozens of little jars of raspberry jam for wedding favours.


Cute stuff

The colors are so soothing. Although I like bright and bold sometimes... I really find the softer more 'subtle' colors just more relaxing. Thanks for sharing.

I LOVE those colors and the quilt looks fabulous.

The jam also looks yummy.

I'm not sure which is looks sweeter - the quilt or the jam! I love the simplicity of your newest flimsy, and that backing print is just perfect for it. Make sure no one eats any of that yummy jam while cuddling up in that white quilt :*O

Oooohhhh... that fabric!! I haven't seen that before, and I *love* it! And I adore the quilt top as well (I love chevron!) You've inspired me to finish the chevron top I started last summer. (And get it off to the long armer!)

I adore the little jams and tags! Perfection.

Oh Carla that is such a sweet little quilt!
And speaking of sweet...the wedding will be doubly sweet with that jam :) I'm sure it was a great time to bond with your future d-in-law too.

Love the jam idea - and especially the little 'spread the love' tags.

It proves how you don't have to go all showy and complicated to make something beautiful.
Love the jam and the pun. Spread the love! Ha ha ha!

OPQuilt said...

Definitely cute stuff on both the jam and on the quilt. And I'm looking at the first photo and trying to figure out how you got out to that corner without making the snow all messy--you must have leapt! or flown!
