While on Instagram one night I found an online shop
to buy some Cotton and Steel
Stitch Supply Co
and it has kits available for making this
15" x 15" "Flowering Snowball" mini quilt for $12.
The kit included the paper templates,
fabric for the front and binding!

Stitch Supply Co. is Ann (owner) dream coming true.
One step at a time on an exciting adventure.
(She also has some other free mini patterns available for download)!

Now, if I can try a new technique
for that cost I am all into it!

This wonderful hobby as we know it
can get quite expensive for a project
and then we find that we cannot
do it properly and quit.
Into the UFO pile,
got any of those my friends!
Sewing curves was not to bad
and I loved the results!

My work in progress or WIP
for this Wednesday (I know today is Tuesday)
is hand quilting this mini quilt!

I am hand quilting the Flowering Snowball Mini
with Aurifil 12 wt. Thread using
#2021 Natural White!

As you look at the colors in this quilt
you can see I could have used a variety of colors
if I wanted the quilting to be the main focus
but I didn't in this case.

By using the white you see the beautiful sheen
off the white but it blends with the white fabric.

Aurifil 12 wt. threads are an excellent way of
adding decorative stitches to projects
and hand quilting.

I love the look of how it makes
the quilting pattern stand out
without taking away from the
overall appearance of the quilt.

Thank you for stopping by to look around!
Create and be unique!
