I had a little of the Amelia fabric left over from my Worldly Twister so I made this little 12 inch square to hang on my new table stand. I think the table stand is very pretty but I don’t think it will work in our house with 2 snoopy cats. The bottom legs aren’t attached and one little bump…..and it falls over.

Simon is pretty much a neat freak – you don’t want to leave anything sitting on a table as he will sneak up and deliberately knock it off. I don’t think the table stand has a chance.

I pulled out my Sizzix Big Shot and a couple dies.

This heart die was one that I had bought recently and I decided to cut it apart and use it in a different way.

I also added some different flowers to the pieced star.

A close-up of the appliquilt stitching I did. I just used a teal thread for all of the applique.

It is getting chilly here and I think all of the frogs are probably hibernating so I brought this little guy in for the winter. He usually sits in my flower bed during the summer and I thought I would take a quick picture of him before he gets packed away.

I hope you enjoyed my Sizzix mini quilted wall hanging.

I am planning on working on a couple QAL blocks today, piece some more batiks and at some point I have to go to the grocery store and the library – what about you?

  1. Your little quilt is adorable.
    I hope you can find a way to make the stand a bit more stable as it is such a great idea to have different little quilts on display for each season.
    Is the stitching around the applique a straight stitch that you sew in such a way that it zig zags around or is it a zig zag stitch?
    Hope you can understand my question!

  2. You always make the prettiest things. I can tell your style as soon as I see it!!
    I tried to appliquilt this weekend and I was awful! Definitely need more practice!
    Thanks for linking at This Week!

  3. Very pretty block Connie! Love the Amelia fabric and your table stand.
    There is a product called Museum Wax that might help to keep Simon from knocking your stand and other objects over.

  4. Connie my husband wanted me to ask you if you have a quilter? I have been looking at quilting machines, but not sure if I would use it as much. And will it beable to quilt the size quilt I like making. I learned to quilt by hand, and I like making queen and king size quilts. I can't afford one of those large quilting machines, as why I have been looking at smaller ones, but I really don't want to waste monies. So can you give me some suggestions?

  5. Love your little square Connie – it's very pretty and I like the stand too – how about using a tiny bit blue tac under the feet to help it stay where it should be ?

  6. Lovely Connie – and what a good idea to cut that heart apart. I have one of those holders and just love it. I have a very long kitchen window and it sits on one end with a sweet little embroidered/appliqued piece on it. ๐Ÿ™‚ blessings, marlene
