September Monthly Mini

Just under the wire...

Made from the deconstructed old blocks I posted about here.
The puss-in-a-corner blocks are a bit wonky, as were the original 
nine-patches. I decided not to worry about that. 


Sparcely hand quilted, 

Vintage indigo border and binding,

Soft, old-looking print for the back. 
(nice and light to camouflage my huge stitches, ha ha!)

This one from the leftover four-patches. 
Not sure about the binding, which I'm already considering switching out for ... ?

 The back is a soft brushed cotton, formerly a pajama leg.

 Yep, methinks that binding has to go. Any ideas?

An idea of scale. 
The four-patches finish at just under 2"
The puss-in-a-corner blocks, 2 3/4" 
Now to link up with Wendy, at The Constant Quilter
for more Monthly Mini's !

The quilts turned out so cute. I think the binding is fine. What a clever idea to use a pajama leg for soft backing.

They are adorable--both of them! They definitely have that vintage look. If you insist on switching the binding, is there any pajama leg left? :)

These two quilts are totally charming! Love them both.

I adore these!! Funny, we both made two this month and I'll bet you were as busy as I was. I think that binding on the mini is perfect. I wouldn't change a thing! I have updated the link on my post to the finished quilts. Thanks for joining in again!

Hey Sandy! Very cute mini's as usual! I agree with wendy, the binding is great, no need to change. Set it aside and look at it in a week or so if you still feel that way you can always change it. cheers!

So sweet. Hugs

Love them both especially since the blocks were rescued. So fun that you used a PJ leg for the backing!

I just love your September mini! It's so vintage and appealing! Sweet 4-patches, too! I'd leave the binding as is on the little mini :)

Love them both. If I were to change the border I would choose red.
