Peta's Framed Mini-Quilt

Our good friend Peta recently turned 70 years old. Peta is a wonderful, joyful character and enjoys creating her own wonderful art-quilts and handmade treasures.....including the most delicious sweets (so good, i've often requested recipes for!).

As a little gift, i made her this framed, mini-quilt using some of my very favourite fabrics (including some Kaffe Fassett and my favourite blues and greens of course!). You might recognise some of them from what i reckon is my all-time favourite quilt, Dreaming of Jacarandas.

I used a gold thread to quilt 1/4 inch from the seams and i love the way the it shines in the sunlight.

Happy 70th birthday Peta! Here's to a great year ahead and plenty more birthdays for us to celebrate together.

  5. The colors in this mini are fantastic, and the frame you selected really enhances the quilt!

  6. I was given a framed micro quilt at Christmas, and I love it. It was a new-to-me-idea. I am sure Peta will adore hers.

  7. This is so beautiful - I love the extra touch the gold thread gives to it. I have never thought of framing a mini quilt before but it makes a perfect gift. Happy Birthday to Peta!

  8. Sweet gift! I'm sure she'll treasure it!


Wahoo.....I'm always stoked to receive comments so thanks so much for taking the time.

Wishing you many happy quilting hours!
