Teeny quilt

I recently got to visit my family in Arizona and while I was there I got to take some pictures of some quilts that I had never documented. This is a small one, about 12 x 16 inches. It is quilted with rays radiating out from the stars. This quilt was created for my grandma out of the scraps from this one. That quilt was how I started my quilting journey, and it was started with grandma's scraps. So it was only appropriate that the scraps from that quilt went back to her.

How sweet! Seeing this little quilt just gave me a flash of inspiration for a project I have been wanting to undertake. Thanks :)

That is lovely. I had never read about the start of your quilting journey. Your first quilt is great. I love how improvisational it is. It was also a surprise to read that you were on nervousness also. We need to email and see if we knew each other "in a previous life"

Making very small quilts is something I'd like to try more of. I tend to make mostly bed to lap/baby quilts. I think going smaller would be even more fun.
