Working on Tiny!

I recently saw the picture of a churn dash quilt that caught my attention and I decided to replicate it on a tiny scale. These blocks will measure about 1-3/4" when sewn together - talk about fun! I think I'm glad there are only twelve of these little treasures.

I finished my hit & miss mat awhile ago. Need to get something else started so I'll have a project to take to my rug group meetings next month!


A couple weeks ago Nancy was making progress on this flower rug - it's probably completed by now. It kinda reminds me of a poinsettia because of the shape of the petals.

Nancy's daughter Kathryn stopped by to show us a rug she had recently made for her table. It's her own design with words and symbols of personal significance hooked into the background.

Hope you all have a nice Thanksgiving!

WOW Those churn dash blocks are tiny and will make a beautiful quilt. Going to have to practice my quilting skills to get blocks that small

Wow! You girls are so talented. I can't believe your tiny churn dash blocks! Tiny is hard, if you ask me. I have made that block in a quilt before, but not an entire quilt made up of them. Can't wait to see your finished project!
hugs,
Jann
