You just made me giggle, Sue.
I wrote earlier this month that I was going to tackle making miniature quilts. Today my first pattern that I ordered from an online place called Sleepy Hollow arrived. It is my very serious opinion that this foundation piecing diagram should be called a micro-mini quilt pattern.
The end of a triangle measures 0.25 inch and the side is 0.75 inch.
My afternoon plans already included going to Office Depot so I made a stop at their Copy Center and a pleasant young woman magically enlarged the micro-mini foundation pattern by 120%. Hmmmmm. "Could you please make that 150%?" Whoops, too large for the piece of 11" x 17" paper. Okay, how about 140%? Perfect!
Go ahead, everyone, call me a coward. I can take it. The largest piece of paper (on the right in the photo) is actually the size of the placemats I use on our kitchen table. I could screw up my courage and make two of these, couldn't I? Nyah!
I plan to use 28 colors and run a long, strung out color wheel with this design ... probably use midnight blue as the background.
that's really going to be a beautiful piece when you get done. Do you have a special black fabric for the background?
Is there such a thing as "special" black? Do you have a recommendation?
I was thinking of ordering Moda's Bella Solid called "Peacoat" which is a very blackish-blue.
It will take me a while to go through all of my leftovers from my color wheel days and cull out 28 pieces suitable for this project so I have time to order something from Fabric Shack in Waynesville, Ohio.
It's going to be beautiful, Judy!

I was thinking something with a shimmer. Maybe a shot cotton? Or, if you feel like working with the devil, you could try Dupioni silk. :-)
That kind of special black. :-)
Pirate, I thought you were my friend.
I will preserve my sanity by ignoring your suggestions.
Oh, working with shot cotton isn't bad at all and provides a subtle sheen.
Now Dupioni? Devil spawn's fabric.
It is too bad that this person doesn’t care more about the end product. And 20 years is a long time to not refine and improve your work. How sad....l
Judy, I refuse to call you a coward! My thought as I was reading the size of the end piece was - enlarge the pattern!
shucks, if you do it larger and like it, then try it smaller!
besides, this is for fun not headache, right?
