Small Quilt Show

Taryn,
is having a small quilt show.
This is my entry.
This is my small version of a quilt designed by Kim Diehl.
My goal was to use scraps of some of my favorite reproduction fabrics.
It finishes at 12 1/2" x 12 1/2".
It is on display in my sewing room along with my grandmother's scissors, a gifted saltbox pincushion,
my featherweight machine and an antique picture of my father.
Hop on over to Taryn's to see the other small quilts exhibited.
