So, of course, I dropped a lot of hints about how lovely it would look in my house. But, I wasn't the only one dropping hints. Her step-son did too. Since the original Trillum Blues was too big to fit in his house she designed two much smaller versions: one with a wood frame and one dowel hung. Since she was creating two mini versions of "Trillium Blues" she decided to create a new e-pattern so you could create a smaller version of your own.
The wood frame mini wall art quilt is going to her step-son. Lucky guy. I, of course, keep dropping hints about the dowel hung one and how beautiful it would look in my house. My pleas keep falling on deaf ears. My sister thinks it would look beautiful in her house, too and already has a place in mind for it.
I keep hoping that she'll take pity upon her "older" "big" sister who hit a milestone "old lady" birthday this year and give it to me. I'm hoping........
It would look wonderful in my house....... baby sister, hint-hint!
Come on now, you know you want to give it to me.........
Here's what she said about her mini quilt:
My youngest stepson wanted a Trillium Blues for his home but he did not have a space big enough for the original Trillium Blues so I simply created a more compact size. The original was 28"x 33" but this Trillium Blues "Mini" is 19" x 19"; a perfect size for a smaller space. It has all the same beautiful cobalt blues, white trillium and of course, the butterfly, as the original did. Perhaps this will fit in a smaller spot for you as well!
"TRILLIUM BLUES MINI" is 16 pages containing a digital picture of the framed fabric wall art quilt, step-by-step digital picture instructions along with detailed written instructions for creating the art quilt; full size EASY TRACE pattern pieces for easy tracing onto iron-on transfer paper as well as instructions for creating the wood frame or dowel hanging. A material list is on the back of the pattern cover.
I hope you enjoy creating "TRILLIUM BLUES MINI".
