My mom loves to garden.  So when I saw this tutorial- http://www.purlbee.com/mini-quilt-vegetable-patch/- I thought that it would be the perfect mini-quilt to make for her birthday!

Here is my version:





It's not perfect, but I'm very happy with the outcome!  Instead of buying the kit, I bought all of my own fabrics and drew out my own templates.  I had never done applique in this manner before, and so I had some trouble with the sharp corners of the leaves in particular- my seam ripper and I are now intimately acquainted!  But other than my lack of applique skills (I know, I should have practiced before diving right in) I found the instructions to be quite well-written and foolproof!

I like your mini-quilt - I think you did a great job on your appliques - Your mom will love it - it's really a nice, pretty little quilt.   Smiley

That's a great job!  And I am totally with you on the jumping right in rather than practicing - I am SOO impatient sometimes . . . At times I regret it, and other times I am happy that I didn't "waste" time with the practice.  Wink
