small finishes

I've been about small finishes lately. It's really hot outside and that might be the reason I keep ignoring my large quilty projects and working on smaller things instead. Plus, the instant gratification is hard to resist :)


I made yet another one of Ayumi's fantastic trivets (this one is #3 for me).


I added one more row of triangular border (the dark one) to make the inside hexagon smaller than the original one, and I just adore how perfectly that flower fits right in.


More pretty flowers on the back, of course :)

 I just remembered I never showed you my trivet #2, oops! Here it is.


This one is for my MIL. She helped me choose all the fabrics and I love how the finished trivet reflects her sense of style.


Oh, and I made this very simple baby boy quilt. It's just two rows of blue/ gray/ black scraps joined together with some Kona I had on hand. It was inspired by this lovely quilt and must have been the quickest quilt I have ever made.


Thanks for stopping by. Hope you all have a very lovely day. Svetlana

  23. You have such a knack for picking the perfect fabrics! I just love the yellows and greens in the first one paired with the blue, gray, and pink. Beautiful! Your mil picked some beautiful fabrics for hers, too. It looks striking and your piecing is so perfect.
