May Le Petite

This month's Le petite project is pieced...Candy Bar Pinwheels from Moda Bakeshop.
It is cute and was the ideal size for a busy month. Have you been watching these projects? For little quilts some have a lot of sewing...great lessons in patchwork. I believe we could almost rename this group "The Year I learned to love points". Lots of points and I am really feeling great with them. This one is from Bliss, I think it may find a home on my dining table. Rather than using a Candy Bar (I have never seen one down here) I used part of a charm pack and coordinated the elements to define the look. What do you think?
 Autumn is well and truly here...the pear trees are turning...by next week it will be bare!

Just gorgeous Alison...but then, I am very partial to Bliss :) Can't say that I am loving points so much...perhaps a bit more practice is needed? I so love seeing your La Petite quilt each month!

Gorgoeus Alison, so happy that points are working for you. Feels great to master something doesn't it!

Wendy said...

I love it in those fabrics, very blissful. It's feel good to get those points sometimes.

Carolien said...

Beautiful pictures and yes, those points! I'm having the same feeling when making the Farmer's Wife Sampler Quilt blocks.
I hope you feel better after that cold ...

Have a nice weekend & greetings,
Carolien
