I was feeling a little blah last Friday after visiting the dentist to fix a cracked tooth, ugh. I needed a distraction from the pain and I felt something "quilty" stirring inside - the desperate need to make something, quick. I remembered my ongoing "Daily Creative" promise to myself - try to be a little creative every day. Or at least every day I'm able. It's good for the soul.
I've never made anything this small and it really didn't take me long at all. I couldn't wait to quilt it and bind it. The blocks finish at 1 1/2" x 1 1/2". I cut one-inch squares for the nine-patch blocks and 2" squares for the setting pieces. Yes, instructions, just in case you happen to be eager to join my crazy small quilt club I just formed this very moment.
For some reason those blocks in my other challenge quilt were looking too darned big and a little voice told me I should try making a smaller version. (Voices?? Really? Now for sure you'll think I am nuts . . . )
(Post-it added for scale.)
To some of you it may look and act like a mug mat but, no, it's definitely a quilt.
Ahhh, very relaxing and exciting to have another little one finished. They should all be this quick. Too bad I don't have a teeny tiny little bed for it . . .
