Just love the Cheri minis . . . . .

I finished up the Cheri mini that I pieced a few weeks ago.



Not only was it quick and easy to piece, but the quilting and binding went just as quickly.


It took longer to figure out what quilt pattern to use than it did to actually quilt it.


At only 11" x 16" even the binding went quickly.  The binding was from the scraps left over from piecing the top.  I had to put more seams in the binding than usual and only had a 2-1/4" x 4" piece left but it was enough.

Like I said before, these minis are the way to go.  Such a feeling of accomplishment to have something else in the finish column instead of all those large tops sitting in plastic bins!


Blessings, Cathi

I love it! Looks like a perfect little quilt for fall.
Mini's do give a real sense of accomplishment. I'm trying to work on my pile of quilt tops, I started with a large one and then will do a small one. Let's hope that's a good plan.

Love it.
Sometimes it takes me a long time to figure out the quilting too. It can be frustrating but you did a great pattern that compliments the blocks.
