Small - and getting smaller!

Not much sewing this week - I've been distracted (mostly by a short book binding course - I'll share more next week, perhaps).

These are the four 3.5" blocks that I've made for my batiks quilt - and yes, they are very much at the quick and simple end of the ones that I plan to make.  I guess that I just wanted to make progress on it, even if it was only a little!

 And this is the 'smaller' project - a micro mini quilt of just 1.75" square (well, squarish - I'm not pleased with how the corner flared out when I was binding it!).

I remembered to reduce my stitch size for the quilting, so that it was in proportion!  And the binding strips were cut at 3/4" wide, so not much fabric to work with!  

Every year Berry_Birdy runs a micro mini stitch along in May (on Instragram).  This has been my only part of joining in so far this year.  Perhaps I'll manage another before the month is out!

  1. The piecing is fab on your little quilts, I wouldn't have the patience, but I know I can't bind anything smaller than a mug rug - I'm in awe!!!


Thanks for leaving a comment! I always appreciate it and will try to respond.
