Since then I’ve been stalking my partner, trying to figure out what she would like.
I think that she will like something pretty traditional so I’ve decided to make her a sampler quilt of itty, bitty blocks.
I got started this weekend and made this Churn Dash block.
As you can see from comparison to the rotary cutter, it is a small block. But at 4.25″ it was too small to fit with the quilt I am planning. So as not to leave this little block an orphan, I plan on turning it into a pincushion for my partner. For more on saving orphan blocks, check out this post I wrote.
I re-did my math and made the block a bit bigger. This one is 5″ and will finish at 4.5.”
And then I made an Attic Windows block…
…a Puss in the Corner block…
…a Maple Star block…
…and a Big T block.
That’s five down and seven to go!
I love working with these tiny blocks. I have worked with even smaller blocks before so these aren’t too bad. The smallest blocks I’ve made were for this dollhouse quilt. You can read more about this tiny quilt here.
Have you worked with tiny blocks? How small did you go? What did you make?
