Wow, that was quick . . . .

I think I may have to make more of these little minis.  I cut out the pieces Saturday night.  A few hours on a Sunday afternoon (with feeding the dogs and blog-hopping in between) and .....


the top is finished! Notice I added an extra column.  Overall size is still only 11" x 16".

See how tiny the pieces ............



It took longer to press the nine-patches than it did to sew them.

Of course, quilting and binding still to go.

Lessons learned:  Starch the side biased triangle fabric before cutting. I've read or heard of this tip many times and just ignored or forgot about it. I thought about it after the triangles were cut.  Although starching the pieces after cutting helped, it would have been better before and MUCH worse if I hadn't at all.  Been there, done that.


Blessings, Cathi

It's really cute, but the pieces are so tiny.

Okay, love it! I was thinking last Saturday (August 27 actually) that I would make a mini quilt every Saturday night. I made one that night and finished it from beginning to end except for binding. It was fun! You have added to the inspiration!

Oh that's just so cute! And so small too! I'd love to be able to piece things that small and have them come out right!
