    Here's some pics of a miniature quilt that I finished tonight. I made this for a friend and fellow quilter who asked if I could make him one to use in lectures. So I said, Sure! It measures 21" x 27". I made up this pattern to show how a simple 9-patch block can be made to look intricate simply by color placement and adding HSTs to 2 corners of each block. Glad to be done with it! :D

    Way to go Eddie!! I love it. I know the feeling tho when you are ready to be done before the project is finished! Happens to me all the time! I do love your color choices.

    What kind of lecture is he doing that he needs this mini quilt?

    I'm not really sure! He speaks to a lot of different groups, though, and is an art instructor by profession, so I think it's just to show different styles of quilting.

    And Rhonda - while working with these little 1" squares, I had SOOOO much admiration for you and how you work with such tiny pieces so much smaller than this! :D

    LOL Eddie my pieces don't start that small! Tho I do use 1" hsts and bostons. And Dorothy just made me some Star Point 1" blocks and Kansas Dugout 1" blocks. Those mostly go in keychains and magnets.

    Just thought I would let you know I added this thread to the miniature virtual section. Any time you have any minis you are welcome to add it yourself. Of course I like to encourage people to check out the minis!! There is lots of interesting stuff there!

    You know Eddie if I use a 12 block by 12 block section I could make a hot pad out of this pattern. I love the design. Of course I would do it with my cut down method in 4 patch sections. Love the idea. Is it ok if I use it?
