Wow, talk about small pieces!  Right up your alley!


From: Dee in TX (DBRADFOR3)


I just keep telling myself they aren't any smaller than the hands & face on the nutcracker.  As you've mentioned before, I don't need any large quilts, might as well do small ones.

I have been working on the Winding Ways blocks.. I packaged as many as I could into sets.

Had a to create a few new pieces to get full Winding Ways blocks without repeats.

Had a few pieces left over and they were sitting on my ironing board and it occurred to me that maybe I could make something out of the leftovers... so...this is what I came up with:

not sure WHAT it looks like though!!

and... not sure what I am going to do with it!

Could be the top of an adorable wrist pincushion.

(Can't really tell how large this is so perhaps it could be something bigger and better but the wrist pincushion is the first thing that popped into my mind.)

ooh...that would be for one honking big wrist!! Block is 6 inches from edge to could be the top for a really big pincushion...

I tried folding it but...since its not really a regular-ish shape, it doesn't fold over nicely. (Have you seen the pincushions made from hexies? They fold over nicely) 

Hum...maybe a mug rug?? Start of a modern art piece?

I don't know if it could be expanded...might have to think on it!

Looks like a fun applique project. Made to order for you!

Fun! So glad it found a good home!

Kinda looks like a kite to me, but what would you want in the shape of a kite?  Hmm, perhaps use it for the label, and add a tail (like, couched down).   ;o)

That will be a beautiful wall hanging.  The beads should be a great accent.  I think all of your quilts are worthy of a quilt show.  Even your simple quilts and I spy quilts are wonderful.
