OMG – January 2017

My first OMG and it is a success!  Albeit a small finish but a finish nonetheless.

This mini valentine table topper was started in 2015 when Linda from Stitch Lines visited her good friend in south Florida.  Her friend happens to have a winter home very near me so I was fortunate enough to meet a blog friend in person.


Linda is the queen of miniatures and after spending some time with her I was inspired to give it a try.  She showed me how to use Thangles and gave me some great pointers.  Armed with some Kiss Kiss by Abi Hall for Moda and some Bella solids, I made my first attempt.  In spite of all her efforts, I made some mistakes but I did learn from them.


So, I am happy to say that I dusted off the kissy faces and finished my table topper for January’s OMG.  Please visit Elm Street Quilts One Monthly Goal January Linkup to see what others accomplished this month.

Thank you Linda, I hope you come back to south Florida soon!
