I finished another Christmas mini quilt. This design was found in the book, Heart Warmings by Pieces from my Heart. I was lucky enough to find a copy at a thrift store for only two dollars. It has some fun patterns in it and I plan on making others, when I get a chance.
I kept this one simple, and did a running stitch around the borders, then some snowflakes and ties to the middle sections. The background was a piece of muslim that I had stained years ago. I used tea, a mix of muddy paint and then an added walnut stain when I was finished.
