A little something from Quilt Sampler

Some of you may recall that Katja's Quilt Shoppe was featured in the Fall 2008 issue of Quilt Sampler Magazine.

This was a very exciting time for us and a huge honor. Each issue features 10 top shops across the USA and Canada. Not every issue contains a Canadian shop. At most one Canadian store is features amongst the 10 shops.

One of the pictures featured in our article was a mini Cathedral Window quilt that my Mom made for me as a Christmas gift several years ago. Later she also made a slightly smaller version for Linda (who brings my Mom her Starbucks fix every Friday). I was reminded of this today while reading Linda's blog at http://www.lindasquiltmania.blogspot.com/

Below is the picture from the Quilt Sampler article along with the original quilt beneath it. My quilt is 5 1/2" x 7 1/4".

My Mom loves to challenge herself by working in miniature. I have been the fortunate recipient of a mini Double Wedding Ring quilt, a mini Baltimore Album, a 1/4 scale Thimbleberries quilt made from leftovers from the original full sized quilt, as well as projects made from 1/4" hexagons. Look for more of her miniature creations in upcoming posts.
