    I'm so glad I looked at this. My first meeting is coming up this Thursday for our quilting guild and I need to make a new one because I lost mine. I don't think it will be as nice as your's. Thanks for sharing.

    That was a customer's antique quilt. The squares were about 14 inches wide.

    Oh, I wouldn't cover up a speck of it. Consider using it with the pin on back and name, club info, etc. in a small hanging "shingle" type or possibly beads, etc.

    Wonderful, and you've inspired me for a project I have waiting in the wings.

    Love your little quilt. It would be neat if you could hang a plastic name tag from the quilt. Be a shame to put anything on that will hide your wonderful work. However, it is yours, so do what you need to do. It is just darling.

    Wow. How were you able to make half inch blocks? Was that hard to do? Great corners on the blocks.

    You sew 1 inch strips together, then sew the last strip to the first strip, right sides together, and cut 1 inch the other way to form circles. Take apart the circle...going down a seam for each circle. Press seams open. Sew strips of blocks together matching seams. Trim, baste top to batting and backing. Quilt, trim excess and bind. I used a 1 1/2 inch strip and did a double fold binding. Making the strip slightly larger, 1 3/4? would probably make the mitering easier.

    I finished the little quilt tag and got the MOST VOTES at the club meeting! Here is a picture of the finished name tag. I won a set of acrylic ruler/templates for Storm at Sea!

    Sorry the picture is a bit fuzzy.
