mini Sunday morning

Welcome to finish it up Friday!

This was a great week of finishing for me. The biggie was getting my rainbow log cabin quilt finished. (Hurray for meeting a deadline!) I was able to finish this low volume mini, too.
I'm (slowly) sewing up mini samples based on the projects in Sunday Morning Quilts to hang at my LQS. This one is an instant favorite! There is something so special about low volume quilts. Probably because they look instantly vintage....aged, faded, sweet.
I did more of this swirly quilting....what I like to call cinnamon roll quilting. :) 
The backing is a sweet dot from Connecting Threads.
(I'm sorry to say that it's now out of print.)
I bound it in a lovely Henna garden print. Just like a cherry on top. :)

It's based on Cheryl's quilt titled Sunday Morning. I had lots of scraps leftover from making my own large version last summer. I love LOVE love low volume! I can not wait to play some more!

Now it's your turn! Please link up your finishes. Thanks for joining me for finish it up Friday!

This is the quilt that I will be making from the Sunday Morning Quilts. I started collecting low volume fabric since I bought the book and found a few floral prints in local fabric store. I hope a baby quilt to be done and give it to a friend who is expecting a baby.
This week, I sew like s storm and finished a Ukelele bag for my girl. She is happy and sew am I! happy weekending~

I love your swirl stitches =0)
My great aunt made me a log cabin quilt when I was a little girl and she backed it with a brown butterfly print.
It was always my favorite and went with me everywhere. The colors on the front were light cheery and diverse and in my 30's it was damaged due to a fire in an apartment upstairs from us.
Yours reminds me so much of the one she made. So lovely!

I haven't tried a low volume yet. You've convinced me I need to. Just have to decide on a pattern.

LOVE your low volume mini!! Mine is on the list to be quilted. But it's about 4th down on the list.

I did finish charity quilt #2 but there's no time left in the day for a Friday photo. In spite of being exhausted I'm so glad to have been able to finish it today. I guess I was in a finishing mood for once. :)

Happy Weekend!

I order from CT and like their fabrics, too. But don't you wish they had more basic prints like those dots? They had a print called Curlique that I had in beige and brown. I would have ordered it in all colors if they had continued to carry it. Why do they phase things out so fast? N
