little quilt monday....fall wavy tumbler mini

Welcome to Little Quilt Monday

I have finished my fall wavy tumbler mini quilt first shown here, that I made with the help of my Go!Baby.  I am so happy with the tumbler die that I have ordered a few more dies(squares and rectangles), but it will be a few days before they arrive.

This little quilt measures 18.5 X 19.5 inches.  I think this pattern is sometimes called a thimble.

I used three different colors of thread to hand stitch this little quilt.....yellow, aqua, and coral.  The solid fabric colors really pop and look great with my fall decor.  I am linking up to Celebrate Color and Manic Monday and Quilt Story.

Now it is your turn to show a little quilt or project that you have made.  Please link up below and link back to Little Quilt Monday on your blog and let's visit each other and get inspired : )

That is adorable! If I had a Go! I would have the tumbler die too. :)

Hello Elizabeth,
We had a question?
Would you do a lil-post or something showing a bit about quilting with the 'crochet-thread'?
I went to a lil-bigger town to Joann's and was mentioning this (fabric counter was backed up)
to a lady there, she say...
"What that does not work"! (ug) Yes, it will! :) We have seen it!
We are going to use that on a lil-project we are working on!
Oh well...
Have a great day! Love the mini:)

Love the little quilts. I linked up and linked back a Quilt as you sew hot pad tutorial. This method could be used for a little quilt also!
Thanks for hosting!
