New Miniature Quilt Finished

new mini I am still working my way through my sewing closest and trying to use up things that are in there.  I had this kit for a miniature quilt that I completed this morning.  The size of the quilt is 16 inches by 16 inches with the size of the half square triangle blocks being 2 inches square. 

 

It now resides with my antique bear and dogs.  I have placed it on my dresser and they are happily sitting on it. You can’t tell that some of the blocks are crooked using the quilt in this way instead of hanging it on the wall. I love my antique bear.  I think he is from the 30’s or 40’s. The Halloween planter is from my MIL.  She bought it when my husband was born in 1955 because his birthday is near Halloween.

This is really nice, looks great with the bear and his friends.
I am doing something similar like you, going to my closets en finishing / using stuff. I try to make things I can give away when they are finished, which gets them really out of the house (because we are going to move to another town).
