Update - September mini


My September mini in the nick of time! Can you believe there are only 2 more days until October? 

If you are a frequent visitor to my blog, you know how much I love vintage feedsacks. I have boxes full of vintage novelty and feedsack scraps leftover from other projects. As you can see cowboy prints are among my favorites. I just started in the center and worked my way outward, cutting as I went along. Wasteful you say? Oh no, the little cutoffs went into my glass jar full of “pieces too small to use, but too pretty to throw away”!
The backing is a reproduction, but it is one of my favorites! Sorry Kyle, I hadn't put the label on before I took the photo! It is done now, I promise.

Of course, this little guy didn’t make a dent, but it was fun to play in those boxes again!

Kyle , Barbara and Janet  have posted their minis and you will most definitely want to "click" and see them! They are all worth a visit! I love how different all these little minis are and yet, I love them ALL.  And, here's Randy's - It was quilted in September, just a tad late in posting - wink!! I love it!

  4. So fun, and a couple of those cute cowboy fabrics look mighty familiar, as in 'maybe there's still some in the stash or scrap totes.' I finally finished my first mini of the year, and then a second this month - yahoo!

  7. I absolutely adore what you have created from your cowboy prints.
    I have made a few pieces from that method, and it was kind of fun to stitch and snip so freely.
    I will be posting my monthly mini probably late tomorrow. I am sewing the binding on tomorrow--it isn't the one I have been working on in my recent posts.
    One question for you--how small is "too small to use"?

  10. I just recently saw some cowboy prints...vintage pieces but I think from drapes. That sort of thing. I like the cowboy prints. I remember a Christmas when I was a kid that I wanted a Roy Rogers holster and gun and a cowboy hat and that is what I got.
