My Masonry has one inch squares in the sashing. That is tiny to me.

Imanna, your Beatles quilt is striking!! Terrific job.

Kitsie's block is gorgeous.

I throw away any less than 3-3-1/2". I have way too much large fabric pieces to waste time and thread on something that small.

Might try it if I was twenty years younger but, then I worked full time. So probably not.

or get a rubber or plastic coated hammer (usually will be little heavier than regular hammers) at a hardward store--called no-mar hammers. I keep one for long arm quilting when you get blocks that have lots of seams coming together in one place.

Here is one I made from 1.5" squares:


I don't believe I ever want to do that again!

DresiA...it must have taken you a long time to sew the decorative stitching done! Nicely done!

I don't have suggestions on sewing 1 inch squares. Bought a pattern once but have not gotten to it yet. What I did want to share is the pendants, charms, and earrings that this lady makes. I joined her club once and have a bracelet, earrings, and necklace of these charming little pieces. Just thought you might like to check it out. I am not affiliated with her in any way, just a huge admirer of her work.
