Mini Quilt Monday

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**

Super cute! Why is it the smaller they are the harder they are to bind?? Table runners make me quiver!

Dolly said...

Aww, I can't see any of your photos today except for the top one with your machine. Sounds adorable though, and a quick sense of satisfaction at doing something that's been on your mind for awhile !

hi there, I'm here to catch up! I was in NY at my grandma's. Sorry I missed Chris' call from Joann's. I have been 'out of the loop' for a couple weeks. I have lots of catching up to do, but figured I'd start with your bloggy since it's one of my favorite places :) Definitely beats laundry, that's fo' sure!

Very cute little mini quilt! And maybe I'm the only one, but your quilting buddy looks a little creepy to me... Maybe it's just the lighting in the photos. :-)
