New Mini Quilt
  Just about finished with my little 12x12 in quilt. It is a donation quilt. I named this piece "The Boat Landing"
   I made a black line drawing  and made a second drawing on some clear cellophane wrap . I use the second drawing for a guide to help me place my fabric pieces.
   I used  cotton fabric scrapes in assorted prints and  I had several  batik scraps on hand  that I used to make the tree leaves.
  All that is left to do today is  my surface stitching, binding and hanging sleeve . I'll post

   The next project I have in mind is to do several small hand bags. Since spring has sprung I want to do bags with flowers , birds , butterflies and  assorted fruits motifs.
    I would also like to do a few more bracelets.
    I've been thinking about what kind of  large quilt I would like to make next and the two places I have in mind to get ides from for the quilt is Ireland and a Island in Mexico Norte -Isla Mujeres ( Island of Women)
 on the Yucatan Peninsula.
