ISMACS Challenge Zippy little quilt top

Close up of the ISMACS Challenge Zippy Little quilt made on a Little Worker/Midget Sewing machine
Well Here it is. The Zippy little quilt top made on the Little Worker/Midget. I was impressed by how well she sewed. Used the stitch guide for my 1/4 in seam and this little quilt went together smoothly. There are lots of little conversationals dotted through it. Many different Ranges and it is scrappy just how I like it. Plan to hand quilt. She measures 20 1/2 x 25inch finished and I plan to bind it in the Lightening fabric. Had lots of fun making this zippy little quilt.
Cheers for now

Picking a machine from our collection (I have chosen a Midget by New Home) I plan to make a Doll size quilt.
