Fall Scottie Dogs Mini Quilt

I had orignally planned this mini for a swap over on a flickr group that I am part of. However it turned out alot bigger than the guidelines called for. I love it though so I'll work up something else for the swap. I still have the buttonhole stiching to complete on this, I figure that I'll hand quilt this as I'm really wanting to practice my hand quilting. This will be a great winter project :)

The two bottom phot's show the colors alot better than the top photo. Here is a link to the flickr group if any of ya'll are interested in joining.

It took me forever to decide on a pattern for the ALQS round 2. However I think that my partner will like this one. Sorry about the bad photo, my camera wasn't wanting to play nice tonight. The fabric's look so much better in person. They are all Civil War Era fabric's . I am doing buttonhole stitching around all of the elements in this mini. I am not sure yet if I will put a border around it yet or if I will just bind it, I'll decide after i get all the buttonhole stitching done.

Antique Mennonite Fan Quilt

I LOVE this antique quilt that I ran across on Ebay several months ago. However it had a 1400.00 $ price on it so sadly it couldn't come home with me. I am a huge fan of Fan quilts and also of Amish and Mennonite quilts. Oh if only I was rich LOL :)Maybe this upcomming summer I will have time to do one that is similar to this.
