    The following are mini's I did for the upcoming school fundraiser. For the blocks I only use left overs and scraps--I will only cut off of a fat quarter or larger for borders and bindings. Many triangle squares are the left overs from FG etc.

    Finished blocks are 3 1/2 "--left overs from a snowball quilt

    Wow, these mini-quilts like this just boggle my mind! Amazing that you all can work in such small terms like this. Great work!

    Thanks to all of you and especially Rhonda. I've found the minis to be such an addiction--what am I going to do with those 2 and 3 yard pieces of fabric I have (just kidding) Quilt guild friends even save pieces for me :lol: :lol: :lol:

    You did a real good job of matching the HSTs on each side of the sashings in your Bear's Paw and yes it is still a Bear's Paw. Great Job on those! Matching those is not easy I should know! I have done a lot of those over the years!! That can be the hardest part about making the Bear's Paws.

    I love the purple fabrics you used in this also. I have a strong preferance for a lot of contrast so this is great.

    You have certainly learned the
    technique of working with the
    mini blocks. They are wonderful.
    Hope you do well with the fund raiser.
    :D :D :D :D
