    Rhonda these are for you! The key chain block is a 2" square and the book marks are made from 3/4" pieces to finish at 1/4"

    I think she's got it!!!! :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup:

    These are just great!! I love the way you did the bookmarks. I hadn't thought of that way of setting the blocks down the middle! These are really pretty. I love making bookmarks because they don't take alot of time to make.

    I am so happy to have shared this with you!! And then to have you share your finished products with us is just the most fantastic experience!!

    I know everyone at the fundraiser will love these!! You definately deserve all the praise!

    I don't know if you want to do this but I like to sew a seam along the edge to give it a finished look. I like a tailored look and the finish seam will secure the edges of the bookmark.
    Just a thought.

    You can make the seam less noticable by matching the thread.

    Thanks everyone for the kind words--Once you get started it's gets easier. I keep looking for big projects I would like to down size. When you are starting mini's use squares and rectangles first. Then move up to triangles. Now that I've got the uploading down I hope to share more of my projects.

    Rhonda--like the Indian hatchet design in the bookmark. I thought about topstitching as you show in your tut; I used Heat N Bond Lite in these two and opted not to TS.
