Miniature Patchwork

I love all things small and was lucky enough to receive for my birthday this year Terrie Sandelin's book - Miniatures in Minutes.   The preparation is quite time consuming, cutting the individual tiny shapes but once done the shapes are sewn directly onto paper which gives a very neat finish.    This is my first attempt.  See if you can spot two mistakes!!!!

Cathedral Windows

I wanted to have a go at Cathedral Windows, a new-to-me patchwork technique and found this free pin-cushion tutorial at the Moda Bake Shop.    I had in my stash some pretty fabric bought from SistersandQuilters on Etsy.   This was the end result.   Now I would like to make something bigger (a quilt!!!) using the same technique.   We'll see!
