In March while visiting the Ohio Valley Quiltersâ€™ Guild in Cincinnati, I was given a challenge. Create a quilted item using a bit of each fabric and at least one embellishment included in the challenge packet. After too many months, I finally knew what I wanted to create – tiny quilts to decorate a home.
I cut squares of the text print and brown fabric along with some batting to create the base for a pillowcase style bound quilt with loops of ribbon included. Once all the quilts were turned right side out and stitched closed on the edges, I cut tiny squares of the other two fabrics and a larger bit of muslin that were stitched to the top. I then used blue thread to add a word or two each little quilt. I hand stitched an embellishment to the quilt and threaded a skewer through the ribbon loops and added a bit of check ribbon.
16 tiny quilts were created – each one meeting the challenge requirements. Iâ€™ll be sending these to Cincinnati so that the Ohio Valley Quilters can enjoy them.
