High Tide Mini Quilt by jenib320

A few more crafty finishes for 2011! I finished up my High Tides mini quilt this week!  I had a lot of fun with this little quilt! It uses fabrics from the Horizon colorway of Morning Tides by Mark Cesarik! I added in a few Kona cottons and Heath by Alexander Henry. I backed it in a fun vintage sheet stripe and finished it off with some Mingle by Monaluna for the binding. It's quilted with a few simple diagonal lines.  It finished at 20" square. I'm really happy with how it turned out, it's so bright and cheerful! Now to find some wall space for it!

I was itching to sew something with these lovely Echino fabrics I received from my Aunt for Christmas! Another drawstring bag seemed like just the thing! This one was made using the project size in my Lined Drawstring Bag Pattern!

  1. I know of two someones, specifically my BFF or my daughter, who would love that quilt. They both adore purple.

    Enjoy the fondue. I grew up having it every year for my birthday dinner but have't gotten back into it yet. Perhaps a trip to the Melting Pot with some friends is in order this coming year.
