I thought y'all might like to see how I'm coming on my tiny tree blocks. Thirteen down out of 31! :)

YAY!!!! I like how you're already putting the blocks together as you go. I think I'd probably just make a stack as I go. This gives a great feeling of accomplishment!

Encourages me to get back to my mini/George quilt!

That's more than awesome, Donna. Like that commercial.....awesome times awesome!!

Do you ever wonder about the minds that think up patterns like this? Sort of like the architects that design layers upon layers of highway overpasses. Kind of scary..... :-)

LOL Sharon! I've taken 2 classes from George Siciliano (the pattern designer) and he is really, really passionate about log cabin variations and teeny, tiny blocks! :) He's won many awards at major shows.

Jen, I couldn't stand to just pile them up! I made the longest row first; that gave me incentive to stick with it for at least 7 blocks. Then I started the next row and that gave me an incentive to make 6 more, despite having huge problems with the 5th one. It wasn't printed dark enough or something, and I was having a heck of a time seeing the lines for folding and sewing.

Lois, they are 3" finished, and have 71 pieces of fabric in each one!

I'm going to try to get the second 6-block row done before I need a break from it.

It's beautiful, but looks so tedious.

Best to you,

Amazing!! I sure do not have the patience for something this small and paper piecing at that. I can't quite figure that out...kind of like trying to curl your hair in a mirror. Can't do that either.

It is fun to see them laid out. They look wonderful, but the idea of sewing just 1 block makes my head hurt. You are impressive!
