We got another snow storm last night. If you know me than you know that I'm loving every minute of it! We have about 8" of snow on the ground. The drive to work this morning was a lot of fun. I think I slid the whole way! I was hoping to get a snow day but no such luck. I was praying for 12". My DH thinks I'm totally crazy (which I admit to) and so does almost everyone else I know. My DH is trying to get me to move to a warmer climate. I'm not ready for that yet.
Now for a little quilting........I want to make mini pillows for our bed in all different sizes. I think making tiny quilt blocks into pillows would look really unique. I've been playing with paper piecing. These are mini quilt blocks. No way could I piece these without doing it on paper. Each block section is 2 1/2" and will sew down to a 4" finished block. Can you see the embroidery scissors? Just to show how small they are.
I love these blocks. They are 3 1/2". I was sewing these rows together late one night........When I should be sleeping all nice and snug in my bed.
Disaster strikes! Yup, can you see what I did? The seams don't meet!!!! How the heck did I do that? Maybe because I didn't take time to pin it. I've been quilting too long for that to happen. Know anything worse than ripping out a seam? Oh yes, ripping out a seam that has been paper pieced!! See, I told you I was nuts!!!
