Little Wall Quilt

 I have been so busy leading up to and during our local show preparing for my stand. After it was all over I started tidying up my messy sewing room and came across this box of fabrics I once had great plans for. I had been collecting marone and cream fabrics to make a large quilt for my parents. There was going to be appliqued roses and I had started on a border of 100's of half square triangles. That was probably around 15 years ago. Since then my Mum fell in love with a Lone Star I was making and I gave them that quilt instead.  As I had one evening to myself I thought I would make a quick little something for me, the half-square triangles were already sewn together so this would be quick!
A quick search amongst my now preferred fabrics,  Reproductions, yielded a lovely little stripe and a floral just right for the centre. In an evening this little miniature was sewn, quilted and bound!
Now, back to work, I have a retreat to attend in a week!
