Small, Smaller, Smallest!

Whew, talk about coming in under the wire! I had a whole other plan but couldn’t get it to work… let’s just say shamrock vs blob and blob won! So, I decided to make a mini of a quilt I’ve really been into lately.

I first saw this on Pinterest with no link to the pattern so I just winged it. (I’ve since found out the pattern is Dublin by Penny Rose.) First, I made a baby charity quilt for guild

This was 2″ strips.

Then, I upsized to 3.5″ strips to use some fun fabrics I brought home from guild

This was a first for me in that I decided to let one of our guild long arm quilters finish this one.

I’ve got the partner to this one in progress

All the blocks are done for the second top.

And so, in the spirit of Small, Smaller, Smallest, I pulled out my 1.5″ strip drawer and made a tiny version to hang in my sewing room.

Here’s a photo of it next to a block from the other one.

Now, a very big thank you to Carol from Just Let Me Quilt for putting this all together! Please check out today’s other quilters… and drop in later this week… I’ve got fun Quilt Con photos to share!

  24. Wonderful tiny scrap projects – well done!

  25. Well how fun is this, I love all of these and Carol is right, it’s amazing how the fabrics totally change the look of each of those projects. I would definitely make of these myself, a great use for scraps.
