{Mouse Meeting} small quilt

Hi dear friends! I’m happy to show you my new quilt {Mouse Meeting}!

{Mouse Meeting} quilt by Teje

This story began with little scraps. When I was organizing my scraps I saw that there was lots of triangles and after collecting them I started to make blocks surrounding them with white scraps; first post is HERE.

I liked the blocks but wasn’t very excited about this project until I saw it on the sky! Quilting was a big question and finally I thought to try free motion by hand.

When I lived in Finland I didn’t like very much snow. Now when I don’t have it, I miss that beautiful scene. Because the wadding is fluffy, quilting looks like some little creatures has ran around on the snow. This project began with name ‘Splinters on Snow’ but because mice wanted to have a meeting, I changed the name.

First members are waiting the meeting to start and the quilt to dry. This sweetheart is my favourite! Pink and green are so cute pair!

First all the mice were looking around the meeting place…

Few of them came last minute to join the meeting. I made them a little bit in hurry so you can see that it’s worth of changing the thread to matching colour when you sew something like this.

Oh, did they have gossips to tell!

Early arrived mice helped to finish the quilt …

And there has to be photo of all members together so they can remember this fun meeting!

Every year there is The Blogger’s Quilt Festival. Fantastic event for all us quilters to see beautiful quilts, find new friends and show our quilts. This year there is a small change and the spring festival is in Instagram, organized again by amazing Amy from “Amy’s Creative Side”! Thank you Amy! You can see the quilts also HERE, if you don’t use instagram.

Mouse Meeting by Teje

Thank you for joining me today! I hope you enjoyed my mouse story! When I have played enough with my little mice, I shall catch them on the quilt and hang it on the wall in my sewing studio.

HAPPY SEWINGS!

  13. I just love that quilt as well as its name, but those mice fellows are just the best. what a fun meeting they must have had. You are so imaginative, you should write a children’s book and use your quilts as part of the artwork. It would be such a happy, fun book. I’m serious, you should consider it. I read children’s books all the time and your stories are already better than most. Keep it up. I love to read about your tales. Hugs from us Sonja

    • Kiitos kovasti Leena! Vaaleanpunaisessa oli just ihana hapsureuna korviin. Meilla Nelli pitaa huolen ettei hiiret tule liian lahelle; vaikka kerran se kylla toi itse hiiren sisalle ja saivat kumpikin akkilahdon. Oikein Hyvaa Paasiaista! x Teje

  24. Is your name perhaps Cinderella? Are some of the mice helping you perhaps named Jacques or Gus Gus? You quilt is colorful enough, whimsical enough, and happy enough that I think you must have had a fairy godmother looking over your shoulder! It made me smile – big time- and I loved your write-up.

  25. What a delightful story about a delightful quilt. We all have fabric triangles left, but I’ve never seen anyone suggest using them like this. It’s brilliant! Thank you; I’ll be setting my left over triangles in small blocks too. Not sure about the mice though!
