Le Petite - Butter Churn

December 1, 2010

I barely made it!  I was really burning the midnight oil last night to get my project for Le Petite, "Butter Churn" done!  The pattern is a This & That pattern by Sherri K. Falls.  It was a ton of fun to do! 
I changed the outer border from the original design.  The pattern called for a border of half square triangles all around the quilt.  I liked the look of framing the center design, so that's what I did!  I love how it turned out!  It's a small project.  It finished 23.5" square.  I'm going to use it for a small wall hanging rather than a table topper.  I used several fabric collections.  The majority is Clermont Farms by Minick & Simpson.  I also used some Rural Jardin and Maison de Garance both by French General.  The blue border is from my stash.  By the way, I have the tiniest fabric stash of any quilter.  The fact that I could use something from it is a miracle!  I'll share it with you some time, but I'll prepare you first.  I don't want to send you all into shock!  I'm the kind of quilter that needs to have a pattern in mind before I can buy fabric. BUT that's a conversation for another post...

Make sure you stop by Sherri's A Quiting Life or Sinta's Pink Pincushion to see the Le Petite Parade.  I've seen a few of the quilts on the blogs and they are gorgeous!

  2. What a sweet quilt!! I like the border too as it doesn't distract from the center.

  7. What a nice little quilt! The colour choice is just what I like! It would look really good in my hallway together with my dark brown chest of drawers. I think I will make this myself, 'bookmarking for later'

  12. After seeing your project with the plain border and comparing it to the hst borders on some of the others, I think I prefer yours. The butter churn blocks stand out more, great call on your part! I have this pattern and hope to get to it someday! Great job!
