    DH makes these from 5/8" squares, individually cut and machine sewn. He has made over 30 wall hanging size, we have sold two. They are in a museum in Germany. I will add more in later posts.
    These will be in chronological order so I can keep track of which ones I have posted. They are all about 3 feet square.

    5/8" before sewing, finish off to about 1/4". Amazing since he has big hands and is always asking me to help him on other things, saying "I need someone with little fingers.."

    Sewed on machine, quilted by hand.

    They are spectacular!

    Is 5/8" the cut size or finished size?

    What is the seam allowance width?

    Makes one feel guilty for throwing small scraps away.

    Missed the 5/8 cut size in a previous post. :oops:

    And I thought I was ambitious for wanting to make a postage stamp quilt out of 2x2's!
