Small Endearments by Sandi Fox
(Like the painter's tape?)
I've completed this little red toile quilt and am auditioning it for a spot on the wall.
I'm hesitant to hang it because the new Moda line 'Lately Arrived From London' has a few prints I will use to re-make it in...but then I have to wait for fall (September) to get my preorder! I'll probably hang it and swap out the newer version at some point.
This one is about 10" x 12"
Machine pieced and hand quilted.
My version has narrow binding.
I love the early 19th century fabrics and am looking forward to the new reproductions.

We recently visited the Bower's Two Centuries of Quilts Exhibit. I had seen the same quilts last year in their exhibit, but is was great to see them again. A couple of them have inspired me to continue building my stash of silk for a future quilt.
Whenever I visit an exhibit I enjoy the 'extras' along the way. On this day it was the Scrimshaw exhibit (limited time) with a case of needlework tools. (Double click on the photos to enlarge them)
