Mini Sixteen is my miniaturized interpretation of Edyta Sitar’s “Sweet Sixteen....an appliqué quilt pattern of  sixteen, 16” blocks.   My MINI SIXTEEN  has reduced each block to 6 inches. While the original quilt is 76“ x 76“, my quilt is 29“ x 29“.

All of the appliqué in this quilt is made from batik scraps from my stash, rescued from my friends’ waste baskets, and from dumpster diving at quilt retreats.  Every piece of fabric in this quilt is a memory.  Thank you quilting buddies for handing me your scraps. Hugs to you all. ❤️🤗

 Mini Sixteen Scrap was started in 2010 and finished on September 22, 2018.


I haven’t blogged about my quilting for a while. But I have been quilting.  This is one of the projects that I have been working on over the past few years. I started this quilt (CLAMSHELL ALL HALLOWS’ EVE ) in November 2016 and finished in August 2018.  Hand Pieced using Inklingo 2.5” Clamshell Collection.  Hand quilted.  Size  24.5” W x 34” L.
Clamshell All Hallows’ Eve

The quilt front is made entirely out of scraps of fabric. The back is a recent sale purchase from Tomorrow’s Treasures Quilt Shop in Ocala FL. 

Clamshell isn’t exactly what I would’ve liked it to be. The green throws me off a bit. But I did use what I had and it will only be taken out in October to decorate for Halloween.  Plus I really enjoyed the process. I do so love hand piecing and hand quilting.🎃
