Seasonal Table top Stand

Last spring I purchased a table top stand that displays 12" quilts.  I'd love to do one for each season and add special occasions throughout the year as I get around to them.  I finished one for Canada Day just in time for our National celebration.  I can't find a picture of the finished quilt in the stand, so I will have to add one later, but here is the little quilt before the red binding was added.  The pattern is by Gillian Fletcher from the Seven Sister's Quilt shop in Norwich, ON.

I finished the fall quilt a little late since I had to invent my own pattern :-).  But it is still Fall for several weeks so I can enjoy it until Dec. 21st when I hope to have a Christmas or winter version ready.  I found this inspiration on this blog.  I used 2" Kaffe Fasset scraps for the squares instead of the 2 1/2" in the pattern for the pumpkin which worked out perfectly for a 12" square.

Great stand and idea for the mini quilts to go on it. Enjoy making all of the seasonal ones. A Happy Birhtday one would be fun, too!

That is so adorable, I found that pattern and want to make it too. That is a great way to display a seasonal quilt! I love it!

I purchased several of those stands a few years ago. I sent the stand and a mini quilt as Christmas presents to several people on my list. Each year, they get a different mini quilt. This year it's maple leaves. Since no one really 'needs' anything, this is a great way to do presents. Eventually, they will have different quilts for each season, along with holiday's, too.
