    With the pressure of Christmas off, a little new snowfall, I am dying to get at my stash and try some miniatures for, of all places, my bathroom. I have a frame with five spaces perfect for some creation. Any ideas? Thought I might also tackle a keychain. THAT would stop my hubby from using my carkeys :)

    What type of patterns are you looking for? Blocks? PP objects? :D:D:D

    I have a little log cabin kind of.It hangs on my little scissors.You start with 3/4 inch squares,{after their sewn they are 1/4 "}.sew 2 together then just work just 2 sides.It's about 2-1/4 " hang it on key chain.

    Hmm, He has a car. I had a car. (Need a new one.) We asked to borrow each others car. Keys not a problem. Spares kept in a drawer.
    Smallest I have done is a doll quilt.

    Do a search on this board for "Rhonda" and you will find keychains and lots of miniature ideas.

    How small is small to you?
    A rail fence is an easy beginner minature block. Take 2 light and 1 dark (or viceaversa) 3/4 inch strips 21" long and sew them light dark light together with 1/4 seam allowance. Cut the strip into 1 1/4 inch squares--you will get 16 blocks. Sew the blocks 4 x 4 and the resulting square will finish 3 inches. To set on point make corner triangles. You can build how ever big you want from there with added borders. One of the quilts in this posting is made similarly

    That's a great idea about stopping husbands from using your keys by making a key chain- a pinkish one would do!
