NYB Mini Quilt

My NYB Mini quilt is finished!
My friend has a beautiful farm for photos --
and she didn't think it was too strange
 that I got out my camera
 and asked for tape right after we arrived
-- she's a quilter, too!
So while the kids fed her chickens,
we took quilt photos!
This mini quilt uses the NYB block 4 template.
I used some of my precious scraps
of Katie Jump Rope fabric
 to make it bright and sunny!
I absolutely love the KJR yellows!

(quilt back)

And here is where this quilt now lives,
in our back entryway,
a sunny burst of color welcoming us home.
I love it!

  6. Cute little quilt! I love the circles around the block the way they're farther apart as they are closer to the edges. Great job!

  7. Great photos! Your quilt is so cool and looks great in your entryway!

  8. I just love your quilt block!! Hope you don't mind, I have it pinned on my Sewing Inspiration board on pinterest:) I wish Katie Jump Rope was still available, but maybe they'll bring it back like Flea Market Fancy - I hope!
