:: Liberty Love mini-spools quilt :.

OK.  Get ready for a lot of pics of my just-finished mini-spools quilt, made from the excellent pattern in Alexia Marcelle Abegg's gorgeous Liberty Love book.  

Lots of fabric-details, with relevant links, are in yesterday's post - but just so you know now, the 'cotton' in all the spools is Liberty, received as a pressie from Danielle.  The top left 'spool ends' are Denyse Schmidt, and the fab specs on the bottom left are Curly Pops.  The 'spool ends' on both right-side spools are from Waterfront Park by Violet Craft - and the binding is Reflection from Waterfront Park.  The mini measures 20 1/2 inches square (52 cm square). 

 And now for some close-ups!
{{if there's a chance to include a Happy Zombie gnoma, then a Happy Zombie gnoma will be included}}

And the back is Polka Dot Stitches by Lori Holt.  Hope you're noticing that way-awesome echo-quilting lines ... and not so much the ruffled-looking fabric ... I am so not good at the actual quilting-part of quilting.  

I love this mini so much.  I love the spools pattern, and all the little fabric snippets.  Can't wait to hang it on the wall in my sewing space.  It would of course have been an excellent idea to have stitched on a hanging-tube of some kind ... but I only thought of that while I was sewing on the binding.  

As this little mini was sewn up in the past week, and is from a pattern in a book - I'm linking up to Craft Book Month at Craft Buds - click through and check out all the fabulous projects created by awesome crafty people, from books written by awesome crafty people!

Hope your Saturday has been a happy one.  I'll be back tomorrow to share the most amazing box-of-gorgeous I received from the super-lovely-and-awesome Pam and Frankie!    xoxo cat
