Smallest Scrap Quilts


Today's is my stop on the small, smaller, smallest blog hop hosted by Carol @ Just Let Me Quilt.

For my first mini, I decided to play with those little extra triangles that I was trimming off blocks.  The end result is a little wonky (which is what I'll name this quilt).   The HST finish at 1/2 inch and the overall mini is 3 1/4 x 3 1/4 ''.

A Little Wonky
Interesting enough, the photo above appears about true to size on my computer!

Now what should I have been using to make my mini quilt?  A little sewing machine!


This mini finishes at 6 x 4 1/2 ''.  I just love the aqua color. Wouldn't it be fun to have a machine a color other than white?   To make this mini, I created a paper piece pattern and then fussy cut a scrap of Blueberry park to add placement of designs in certain areas.


Thanks for stopping by - now please go visit  the other wonderful quilters I am sharing today with -
