Wow, it looks really good, Jeanne! Those points! The colors are very pretty together.


That is lovely, well done! Is it hand-stiched throughout?
I like a bit of wonkiness, lets you know that it was made by a real person.

For batting in my mini quilts, I find a piece of old flannellette is just right. Taken from an old sheet, for example.I

Very nice work.


For future reference, Susan adds that she presses seams to one side (which helps to give the illusion of "fluffiness"), and always uses flannelette as batting -- and that she never actually quilts them, as it don't seem to look right. The ones I've seen of Susan's are log-cabin variations, which consist of fairly narrow strips in the blocks, so I could see how quilting would look odd, with the quilting so close to the seams -- these Amish-style ones, though, with the larger pieces of fabric ... I'm still wondering.
