Le Petite Butter Churn

Sherri & Sinta have organised a group...Le Petite...stitching a small quilt each month. No pressure....make it if you can...no huge requirements list...quite fun & motivating. A great group to follow and marvel at everyone's different interpretations. Follow the parade on their blogs.
The quiltlet for November was "Butter Churn" by Sherri Falls of This & That Quilts. It was a great little quilt which I made entirely of scraps from some Lakehouse fabrics left over from other projects. It is only 24 1/2" square...I am thinking of adding an extra border or two....maybe some more of those super cute churn dash blocks to make it suitable for a baby quilt ( I mean as a gift!). I love making these small quilts...so great for practicing techniques & playing with colors. Pop by and see the cutest little Christmas Tree quilt that is the December project...prairie points are perfect for this time of year!
Raining here today...might have to sew when the house is clean....and the Christmas cards are done!

Oh my gosh!! That quilt is just adorable. I love the fabrics that you used! I have this vision (for next year!!) of Christmas ornaments, samplers, quilts, all throughout my house, having been made by me. It's a nice dream!! ;)

Love the gift from Nicky! We get that Border Security show over here--funny to see what people try to sneak into the country!
