Two Black Leaves

Well, I enjoyed making my last mini quilt so much, (thanks for the lovely comments!) I just couldn't wait a whole week to make another one... so I guess we can call this "Wee Quilt Wednesday" just for fun!


I wanted this piece to look as elegant in its simplicity as a lovely black and white photograph that was matted and framed, but of course it's all fabric.


Just like the bird print in my last post, this leaf fabric came from Ikea, too. I hoped that the close line quilting would give the leaves a feeling of movement.

Two Black Leaves is currently available in my Etsy shop.

Have a lovely day everyone!

...And your styling rocks too! I'm a sucker for a Fiesta pitcher ;-)

(Of course I really like your mini wee quilts, but that goes without saying.)

Hey Harriet said...

This is lovely Vic! You're on a mini quilting roll! I was wondering why you were so quiet on your blog last week, and now I know! Hope all is going ok for Mo this week. Big hugs to the big beautiful pooch! xo

It does look like framed paper- nicely done.
What great IKEA finds.

You definitely achieved your goal.
And I'm really digging the horizontal plane lately.

Hi Victoria. Your mini quilts are just gorgeous. I am trying to get back into some kind of working pattern after a hectic few weeks. Etsy is driving me mad, taking an age to list and I have so many things to get on there I fear I will be here all night!

It's all so good. Makes me wish we had an Ikea within driving distance!

These mini quilts are very appealing. Little gems.

Thanks so much. To be honest, I always sort of balked at Mini Mondays. Wee Wednesdays are much more my style. You've inspired me. Your "Wees" appeal to my artistic nature.
