Look what i did while we were sitting around last night! I raided my scrap bucket, pulled some vintage sheet scraps and made the teeny tiniest quilt ever! Look how little it is next to the quilt foot!!!
I just wanted to see if it would work....would cutting fabric into 1 inch squares make me want to scream or would it make something way too cute! I had been thinking about doing this for a while but last night the moment hit me and I just went for it.
And little did i know that i was making the perfect sized quilt for my little quilting buddy.
I hand quilted it in under 5 minutes...the binding is what took some time. It measures nearly 3 inches square. There were lots of fiddly bits but the cuteness factor made it totally worth it.
*** check out the other mini quilt i made this week...i shared it for sew and tell over at Amylouwho's. Hello to anyone here saying hello from V and Co...thanks for stopping by**
