8 more minis!


Happy Friday!  I have a few things to talk about today.  First, today marks two years since I started this blog.  I think that warrants some kind of a giveaway, don't you?  Stay tuned for more on that next week, because I'll admit I don't have my act together on it yet.  But I do want to take a second to say thank you all for reading this little blog of mine!  It wouldn't be nearly as much fun to post if you weren't here.  Your friendship, comments, and support mean the world to me!  You're all the best! xoxoxo

Second, did you know that Amy is having a mini quilt party today as part of her Sew & Tell Friday series?

Write a new post about a mini quilt you've made, link up to her blog, and enter to win lots of great prizes!  I'm linking up with the mini I made for my Pretty {little} Pouch partner this week.  I had high hopes of finishing a new mini in time to link up today, but it's taking a bit longer than I anticipated.  Here's a little taste of what it looks like though!  Let's just say that my free motion foot and I are becoming fast friends.
Also on the topic of minis, I started a new flickr group this week called Modern Mini Quilts.
It seems that there's been a ton of fantastic minis popping up in our community since Amanda's class on them at Sewing Summit (sadly I wasn't in the class, but I heard it was excellent!), so I figured it would be nice to have a place to share them all!  There's already lots of pretty minis in the group, so it's a great place to go if you're looking for some small quilting project inspiration.  If you're a mini maker, be sure to add pictures of your mini quilts to the group!  Don't forget to add a button to your sidebar while you're at it!

Lastly, I just wanted to say Happy Veteran's Day.  For all of you who have served our country, thank you for all that you've done for us!  I made this banner for The White House recently, and this quote wouldn't be true if it wasn't for your service.
That's it for today.  Have a great weekend!
