Yep, I couldn't resist!

I to fell into the 'Nail Polish' mini craze!  I tell you what, the minute I saw this cutie, I knew I had 3 wonderful ladies that I simply must make these for.  My sisters!!  Yes, all three of them do their own nails and use ugly towels under their hands and polish while doing so.  I thought that these would make great birthday gifts for each of them, so I set out to find out their favorite colors.

This is a FREE download from the Fat Quarter Shop.  They even have a tutorial on YouTube!  This pattern is super easy and fast.  I suggest you get it for yourself or as a gift.  If you have a friend that loves polish, give her the pattern with all the needed fabrics and her favorite nail polish!  Christmas is coming you know.




This little cutie turns out 14x22.  I did some 'organic' line quilting.  I like the way it makes this mini lay flat.  Easier to get your bottles to stay upright.  I sure hope they each like these little gifts.

I told you about my ruptured disc with my last post, well, I have sense had surgery on my lower back.  It has made sitting at my sewing machine difficult, but I think that I will be cleared for normal activities soon!  This little cutie was one of the first projects I tried about 1 1/2 weeks post surgery.  No pain at this point....just fatigue!  This has been the longest 3 1/2 months of my life.

You don't let a 'li'l' back surgery stop you, do you. These are very cute, Miss Vicki. You do stitch the funkiest makeries....such a great idea.

Love the nail polish mini quilt.. what a perfect gift for the sistas! Hang tough with that healing. As a fellow back sufferer, I know that it seems to take forever to get better. Patience, my dear! ;)

I made this mini, too. It's such a great and quick pattern.
The background colour you picked works so perfect with the nail polish red, I wish I had picked something similar!
