This is a little Valentine to myself. It is a Little Bites pattern by Miss Rosie's Quilt Company, and is called "Drop". The quilt measures 20 inches square, and is made from Chateau Rouge fabrics by French General for Moda. The pattern has three versions for the quilt, and I chose to make the largest.
I started this just before Christmas and made perhaps seven little blocks. The project got put away during the holiday as things do, due to house guests, major tidying, and no time to sew anyway. I pulled it out last weekend and finished up the remaining blocks in no time. This project is made entirely of two inch squares (except for the lattice and borders). I had a mini charm pack or two, which I made use of for this little table topper. The fabrics for my lattice, borders and backing were all in my French General stash. I think the fabric for the border is from their Maison de Garance collection, so you can see their stuff all "goes" with each other from season to season.
Here is a close up, which I am not ashamed to show you. Dare I say it? My machine quilting is getting noticably better!
This is the first Little Bites project I have completed, and certainly will not be the last. I think the mini quilt bug has bitten me hard.
For those of you who have been inquiring about Ozzie, he is alive and well. If you look closely in the top photo he is lounging in the chair in front of his observation window. For once being good and not teasing the life out of me.
