When I got up this morning I did not intend to sew scraps...
More scrap play followed and I also put this together. I've always been fascinated with Cathedral Window blocks and came across this tutorial recently.
The day started sedately enough, I did some needleturn applique ... and made a little progress on one of the blocks from Just takes Two. (This was a BOM from last year.)
After feeding the animals and playing outside a bit, I sat down to lunch and browsed through 'Best of Fons and Porter Star Quilts". I suddenly realised the mini quilt I was looking at had star blocks which finished at 1 1/2 inches!!! Rising to the (self-imposed!) challenge, before I knew it I was rummaging through my smallest scraps and ignoring any other plans for the day!!
|Isn't it just too cute for words?!|
Finished size - 1 1/2"
Think I may have to make a few more of these - a great use for tiny scraps!!
|Just so you can get an idea of the size!!|
(BTW - pieced, not foundation pieced)
|It needs touching up in the odd place but I am pretty happy with it.|
It will make a sweet pincushion.
Today I'm linking up to Scrapbasket Sunday on Kim's Big Quilting Adventure. To play along, and visit other scrappy playing, visit here.
Thank you for visiting, happy creating,
