New Ruler and Mini Quilt Progress

Look what I got in the post. My ruler that I won from 'I Have a Notion', during their thirty days of Giveaways. Kelly is such a genuine person and has such wonderful things to buy in her shop.

The ruler came just at the right moment, as I am working on my Mini Quilt Swap for the Quilting Gallery. I have shown you the embroidery already, but I decided I would make another one, so that I could practice for the swap. I bought some reproduction Jane Austen material called 'Winchester', and I am going to make two mini quilts, one for me, one for my partner. Below you can see me using the ruler to cut out the material for the Prairie Points. It was so handy!!
Thankful Thoughts

Yesterday we had sleety rain. Today we had hail showers (see picture of hail storm in progress!), and it is cold!! Thank goodness we are warm and snug indoors.

I must away and do more on the mini.
Till next time.


  1. Neat. I have always wanted to do a miniature quilt. I will be interested to see how it turns out!

  2. Can't wait to see the beauties you create with this ruler! And I agree, Kelly is a wonderful person (very generous too!). I also love her IHAN store. Great products & great prices!


  3. Have fun with that new ruler. We are chilly here too- had rain yesterday and it is still overcast and windy.

  4. How lucky you are to win such a good prize. Good luck with the minis.
