I purchased four fat quarters of this beautiful fabric during my New York trip last fall. After reading the one selvage that was included, and doing a little detective work, it looks like they are from a line of fabric called Woodlands, by Jo Morton for Andover Fabrics.
The pattern I'm making required a bunch of HSTs and I always make them bigger than I need, and then trim them down. I ended up with a pile of little bits and pieces that looked like this.
Among them were a bunch of bonus HSTs which I decided not to throw away like I usually do! :) They were about 1 1/8 inches square!
Then this happened. A crazy Colorado, spring snowstorm. If you can't read that yard stick, it says 14 inches! I was snowed in for the day. What's a quilter to do?!
Well, make crazy, tiny quilt blocks, of course!
Here is my finished block, at 2 3/8 inches square.
I don't work with fiddly, little pieces that size very much, and ended up deciding four of them was enough!
I put them together into a mini that is now 6 x 6. Although the blocks above appear to be square, they are not in the finished mini! Fortunately, wonky is "in" these days! It was quite a challenge to keep everything square, and I didn't really achieve that. But it is cute as can be, anyway!
Fun to challenge myself with, but I'm happy to get back to bigger projects now! I'll be linking this project up with Oh Scrap! over at Quilting is More Fun than Housework today. Looking forward to seeing what everyone else has been up to this week!
