Teeny Tiny

I made another version of the Row by Row quilt - using pretty much the same color palette as the first one I did. Except this one is really, really small! The finished size is 13" square - with the ivory squares measuring only 1/2"! I made fewer blocks to keep the scale appropriate.


And I've decided I'm very fickle. For the last couple weeks I've been working on my Crazy Horse rug - but Wednesday I drew up a new design and started hooking on it after being inspired by a rug I saw from pictures of the Lenexa Hook-In. I think it'll go fast and it's a fun one. Will share a picture soon.

I just realized that I hadn't shared pictures from my First Tuesday group yet! Marilyn is working on a sheep & a willow tree - classic primitive design! It's an oval right now, but she plans on adding a squared off border to it to make it rectangular which makes it much easier for binding!


And Cindy is doing a rabbit surrounded by flowers. I love the low contrast for the background - that rabbit will really pop when she gets him done!


I took my little grandbaby with me for show & tell that day, so I didn't get a single loop pulled, but that's okay - he's so much fun!

Love the row by row quilt!
The tiny one is really cute :0}..
I'm working on a queen sized one for my son and his wife..
Only they wanted it set in black, I didn't think I'd like it but it's quite pretty...

Are you ready for another storm?

What a great way to use scraps from a quilt project -- making a mini version. They are both beautiful -- as is the rug!
