A Small Quilt Finish - Louise

Louise

I finished that little bit of binding shown on yesterday's post and then put this small quilt on the table where our daughters' wedding portraits are displayed.

 
I like to name my quilts, but its hard to think of names for a small quilt like this. They finish up so fast that there's no time to bond with it, if you know what I mean!

So after pondering this for a while I decided I would name the small quilts I make after deceased or elderly loved ones or Biblical characters.  So this quilt is named Louise, after my mother's oldest sister.   I was named after Aunt Louise.  She died many years ago and I barely remember her.

I love this little quilt and your method of naming them! I can think of so many relatives I'd love to name quilts for - I just love that idea! This one looks great with the table and pictures.

Isn't it great how quickly little quilts come together?!? Congrats on finishing up Louise!

What a nice little quilt. Little projects can be so satisfying - they remind our hands and mind that we can finish things! Great Finish!

After finishing a mini quilt this week, I am bound (pun intended) and determined to make several more soon! The satisfaction of finishing something in a reasonable amount of time is wonderful, isn't it?

I like the muted colors and simple pattern in your quilt.

p.s. Don't miss out on the giveaway this week on my blog, if you're interested!

I had never thought of using a mini quilt as a centerpiece. What a terrific idea. I love the wedding theme of the setting, too.
