Tonight is the bi-annual Miniature Quilt Auction for Columbine Quilt Guild.
I decided to make something different this year, after all, everyone can make a miniature quilt, so I made Myrtle. Myrtle sits in a quart Mason jar filled with wooden spools of thread which her skirt and apron conceal. She is wearing pearls from a necklace of my mother’s from the early ‘50s.
The quilt Myrtle holds in her arms is a real quilt. It has all the parts of a real quilt. It has a machine pieced top, batting and a coordinated binding. The quilting was stitched by machine and hand; the binding was finished by hand.
My husband says Myrtle looks just like me, grin. At least our hair is the same color! I had my hair cut last week, so she can’t look like me!
I DO love Myrtle and hope she finds a happy home!
