Small but meaningful...!

I would like to share with you my last project for Jo's Little Women' Club. It is a small quilt that became therapeutic for me. You could almost say, it was a method for mourning a dear friend.

You see, I started this project the day my friend Cheryl left the bonds of earth. Yes, on that very day! So in her honour, I have named it Stone Patches.


The pattern suggested that I hand embroidered 4 (four) of the ladies, but I chose to high-lite only one! Her name is Cheryl! ;o)

It's a cute little project! Scrappy!

I even used a couple of hour glass squares from a previous project! Yea, scrappy!

I must admit, I am enjoying working on these small quilts. They make gorgeous accent pieces in a room.

I have picked a winner from the post Things that make you go Hawwwww! Thank you to all those who posted. I enjoyed reading your entries.

The Winner is......... drum roll please...........!

Kimberly of numerous blogs! So I did a inimimimanimo and picked her blog My brown bag Studio to link too! ;o) Kimberly, please e-mail me with your mailing address so that I can get the hand made notion holder out to you.

Thank you so much for stopping by! Cheers!

What a beautiful piece. I have been stitching vintage illustrations and making them into mini quilts. They are fun and quick.

What a wonderful way to remember your friend by, Carole. How special.

One can never have too many mini quilts. The one you made for me in a swap two Christmases ago always takes center stage in my studio. It's my absolute fav!

Carole- It's absolutely gorgeous and what a nice tribute and gracious way of honoring your friendship with Cheryl. It's seems unlikely that it will be a month since she's passed. She would smile at your finish.

PS: love the hour glass blocks used too. Perfect!
