Mini Wall Update

 I finished the second miniature for my wall this week. I won this pattern and decided to hand piece the stars. The stars went together easily and I can't imagine stitching them by machine. But, I ran into some difficulty when I was adding the background.  After a few attempts,  I came to the conclusion that something had to be wrong with the pattern. I was right, and things went together quite nicely once we jumped that hurdle

I have blogged about my mini wall here, it's been a while so I thought I would share a new pic. The wall is not full and there is still a lot of room for more minis, but I have made some progress. I love the variety and they are a great inspiration to me while I sew.


  1. Love all those minis on the wall Carla. I think my favourite is the green in the middle. Plenty of room for more!

  2. Congrats on the finish! Your wall of minis looks terrific.

  3. I love your latest mini. I have a large wall in my sewing room and am planning to make it a mini wall. I have enough that I should start hanging them. Your's is beautiful and inspiring.

    1. Good luck with yours. I really like fitting them in between larger projects. Thanks!

  4. That is a gorgeous quilt! I love those fabrics ever so much. Love you wall of quilts. Oh to have one of those some day.

  5. This is a lovely addition to your wall. It's a shame you found a mistake in the pattern. Kinda hard to understand how that happens.

  6. Thanks Maureen! Somehow, I always think it is me when things go wrong. I am learning to be more open minded and use my instincts, life is much better that way.
