Favourite little quilt

Don't you just love how one blog leads you to another which leads you to another which...and so on.... today Doniene's latest post led me to Taryn's blog called Repro Quilt Love  - which looks like it will be one I will visit often. And leaping in feet first, I decided to join in with Taryn's Online Quilt Show; where we share a favourite mini or doll quilt.
Regular followers will know that I have had a bit of mini thing happening this year so I've shown those in various stages of construction quite recently. However, another favourite (which I have shown a while ago)  is this little one that greets me every time I come up the stairs into the main part of the house.
 The stitchery is a Gail Pan design from Australian Homespun magazine number 58.   It sat waiting for inspiration until I found the 2 1/2 inch squares to put around the border.
It is very simply finished with a bit of invisible fine (machine) quilting around the stitchery and a faux hand-quilting stitch in the border.
Thanks for inviting us to the Quilt Show, Taryn. To see all the quilts on show, visit her blog here.
Thank-you for visiting, happy creating,

Previous little quilt - love the tiny stitchery & the way you bordered it. What a sweet greeting each time you climb the stairs too. We need those special touches in our homes.
