    I saw these in a local quilt shop but didn't have my camera with me. I just found them in another quilt shop yesterday and had my camera so I took photos.

    These are just amazing to me!! They are all no larger than 1 1/2" and most are closer to 1". You can kind of tell in the picture how small they are in comparison to the jewelry hanging close by. The lady that makes them puts them in these little boxes that have a keychain loop on them. These are paper pieced.

    These designs are in the book Small Blocks Stunning Quilts

    Amazing!

    My eyesight and fat fingers wouldn't let me work on something that small. :)

    They have little links on them so they could be used as earrings but they are $22 to $24 each. Expensive earrings at least for me!

    Maybe when I have time to play. I have done some almost this small. Before I started selling to Kalona I used to do all my sewing by hand. I didn't even know how to use my sewing machine for this back then. I did learn to sew clothes in homeec.
    I made a lot of trifold and bifold billfolds back then. These are some I used for a while and they are in sad shape! But I still love them. I made all the tops with 1/8" blocks. I used 3/4" squares and it only took 3 stitches per seam!! LOL When putting two blocks together that is!

    Back side of the one above. Blocks are 1/8"

    Besides, Rhonda, you could make your own.

    Those are cute!
