The swap criterion was tiny! No more than 6 inches in any dimension. I had several ideas, and eventually settled on this version, using strips, and portholes and applique.
Strange, I do not think I am fond of doing applique, but I do like the end result, so I seem to do it rather more often than might be expected..
Now, this wee cat is reaching down, and she needed something to reach for..Perhaps a butterfly?
And then, any mini needs a back...
My partner had expressed a fondness for needle books, in her details, so for a wee addition, making a needle book felt rather apt. I had seen Lucy's 'Stitchy pie'
A few more tiny extras and we are done!
I am eagerly watching the post, to see when I get a surprise mini quilt... Hurry up Mr Postie!
