sweet petites and quilt minnesota

i’m back…after a very hot day spent doing loads of laundry, picking a handful of strawberries, and making rhubarb crisp (and hamburgers on the grill and yummy fried potatoes.  i would have been doing this yesterday, but i don’t get many days off…and totally wanted to spend it doing laundry.

anyways…i have some wonderful pictures of our new precuts of Quilt Minnesota.  these fabrics are so luscious and sunwashed and time-worn.  mom finished up her Sunwashed stars yesterday so she’ll be stitching those together…can’t hardly wait for the end result.  we laid them all out to get an idea and i’m pretty sure it is my favorite quilt mn pattern and fabric yet (and i really liked that moda line of blue and creams from a few years ago.)

after popping around to my favorite blogs…i hit upon Bonnie’s (from bonnie&camille) via camille‘s blog and i just LOVED her mini bolts and tiny bolts.  so i do not claim this idea as my own…though i have seen other quilters around the web do this very same thing.

we, of course, changed it up a little bit.  i attached a little info to the “Sweet Petites:  One Yard Wonders” and the “Sweet Petites:  Fairy Fats” are all bundled and tied up pretty with a fun little tag.  (Our Sweet Petites will make their premier at the Quilt Show in Bemidji in Late July.)  we will also compile a grouping of patterns that call for one yards.

the 17-fat quarter bundle and the Sunwashed kit are the same thing….(if you are thinking we planned that–you are correct, we did!)  i also did up parade candy (6–fat 16ths) and blender bundles of 6-blender fats.

one yard wonders and the blender bundle…scrumptious!


“Sweet Petite:  One Yard Wonder”  easy to pick up…no waiting at the cutting table!


we stood them straight up in a baby bench we found at a thrift store (i’m thinking we are going to paint it to match the fabric a little better.)
