First mini

While making Sharon's B'day block, I ended up with a bunch of small HSTs and decided, why not. So I put them together, added a few extras, and made my first mini quilt. It is 11 inches square, I guess that still qualifies as a mini. I'll send it along with the b'day block. Hope this doesn't spoil the surprise, but I wanted to share.

"Love it!" says she who doesn't really like the tee-tiny pieces needed for miniature quilts.

Yes, you blew the surprise. But, who cares. It's just so darn cute.

Yup, I think I may be hooked now. One thing I will do different, next time I will sew it on my featherweight with the single needle opening. The small seams will be easier to manage.

Enjoy Sharon, it will go in the mail next week.

Wow, that is really pretty. I love it! Those have to be really small pieces, don't know if my fat hands could work on anything that small. Sure would love to try though.

By being "First" I expect to see more! Great job. Good use of "left overs". Sharon has to be a "good" friend to deserve such a work of art.
I feel like those blocks in Dear Jane and SBQ qualify for mini but not as creative as yours. TFS

RE: First mini

Shoot! Makes me want to make myself a BD block just so I can get the little HSTs!

Jayne, Since Beverly and I have been through a lot of laughter and gut wrenching tears, I think that qualifies us to be 'good' friends. @:)

Sharon, I can send some small pieces if that is all you need.

Yup, Sharon is my Dear, Dear, friend.
