A Small Finish

Yesterday I finished the September a Challenge quilt for the Small Quilt Talk group.

I am really enjoying making all my little SQT challenge quilts out of vintage fabrics.

I made my mini much smaller than the original pattern by Kathy Tracey. Her version had 16 4 patches in the center and mine only has 4. It measures 9 inches square.

I used a vintage feed sack for the back again and quilted with gray thread.

I am still working on the QOV on the frame. It is slow going so a little mini quilt makes a fun break (or is that procrastination?!?).

Linking up with Kelly at My Quilt Infatuation for Neede and Thread Thursday.

    Oh Katy! I am in the online group, too, and always look forward to seeing the quilts that you make.
    This one is so cute! I always hand quilt mine, but may machine quilt a grid like you did. Looks great!

  7. THis is an adorable little quilt – and it may be procrastination BUT I think you need to do what you need to do – you will get to the avoided task when you get to it – meanwhile your soul is being bathed by producing something quickly achievable and beautiful – I firmly believe in letting my heart tell me what to do!
