A glimpse (or two) of an Irish summer garden

Earlier this summer I wrote about the Irish Summer Garden Quilt I started, inspired by my Irish summer garden. I finished the top and have layered it up ready for quilting.

In the mean time I have been playing with some scraps, making mini quilts at about 6 inches square. I am thinking of them as glimpses of an Irish summer garden. At the same time they gave me an opportunity to practise quilting a few ferns before tackling the bigger sister. I am so happy with the results that I am inspired to make more small quilts now!

I also experimented with the binding, making it narrower than usual which I think suits their small size. I'm working on a tutorial for that...
