Summer Starburst Punchneedle Mini

It's soooo cold here in Des Moines I am thinkin' summer to warm up! We had -20* windchill today! Brrr! So I thought I'd share my latest mini punched quilt with you since it has Summer in it's name. This one isn't really a quilt I guess, because it is not quilted. It has a wool border giving it a more prim look. I'm real happy with it, loving the colors and cheerfulness they bring on a cold winter day. This pic is nice and bright, but the real deal is a bit less bright when you see it in person. Even though Summer is in the name this little quilt would be great for all year long. It would pass for spring with an Easter bunny sitting on it, for summer next to a basket of flowers, for fall with the warm brown accents and even on a cold winter day like today with the blue that reminds us of a winter quilt. I'm sure this one will stay out all year long at my house. I have missed displaying blues in my home and was happy to find these beautiful blue wools along with the other pretty colors from Blackberry Primitives.

It measures 12" square just like the others. The Valdani 12 pearl cotton, always colorfast, is great for a prim look, imitating a mini wool rug. You can buy this pattern from my website, Hallbrook Designs if you like it! It's a unique way to show off your punched project! You will also find the punch needle and hoop on the website if you are in need. I will be making a Valdani Thread order early next week if anyone needs any of these beautiful threads. Please let me know if I can help you with an order!

On another note, it's Super Bowl Weekend! Who's going to a quilt store sale to celebrate?!? What better reason to shop than a football game, right ladies? I will be supporting some local stores at their sales before the big game. If you do some shopping and you're a blogger, be sure to show us your stash!

Have a great weekend, Stay warm and Take Care,

Missie
