Tiny Squares



A while ago a friend and I went to a quilt show. I noticed a quilt with tiny nine-patches in it. Each little square in the nine-patch finished to a half inch! I thought I would try a few of my own. I am just piecing these the regular way, not paper piecing. This is what I have made so far. I have a general idea in mind for these, but it may morph in several ways before it's done. You as well as I will have to wait and see.

Yesterday I went to another quilt show, alone this time. This is the raffle quilt that I am going to win. It is my favorite color - blue - and my favorite block pattern - Ohio Star. (I can pretend, can't I? I mean, someone's ticket will be drawn.. why not mine??)

Oh Carol....I saw your socks! My heart was singing as that is me too! Happy feet.
Love nine patch quilts, and the different patterns that can be added make it a staple go to for us quilters who have scraps.
I'm not typically a blue person, but that one was really cute.

I love working with mini squares. A way for me to try more patterns without the investment involved in a full sized quilt.

I've been working on tiny nine patches the same size as yours. They really are addictive. Best of all, they use such tiny bits of fabric that you can justify saving even the littlest strips.

Oh, I love that raffle quilt! I wonder if I can figure it out? Hmmm....
