A Miniature Finish...

I managed to get an OPAM tick for July...
Using two orphan half square triangle foundation pieced strips that were left over from the Fairfax Sampler project that was abandoned and ended up as four miniature quilts...I had actually put it together months ago as part of the whole re-purpose of that project and it kept being pushed around the sewing table just needing me to decide the right shade of cream thread to add some hand quilting...but now it is off the table and on its little stand...
And the stand which has stood on the shelf for years (and it could be 10, I've lost track, since it was painted) waiting for a quilt to keep it warm is finally cold no longer...
Not a huge finish - at 5" x 13" - but finally not being pushed around the sewing table any longer...

Happy Stitching...

Size is not really an indicator of how much time and work goes in to a project. It's a very sweet finish, and wonderful to have it off the sewing table and on display.

Cute stand and mini.. Good on you... I am sure we all have those little projects that don't take much to finish.
