    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

    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

    thismomquilts--no I don't paper piece. I have tried it, but don't care for the steppy parts--getting paper pattern, pulling off back of paper etc. I don't like to spend any extra money (would rather buy fabric :lol: ) My piecing is far from perfect.
    quiltwoman--I don't cross stitch because I couldn't focus on the small graphs etc. If you want to check out some tututorials--Rhonda does some nice techniques and easily undersood.
    Thanks to all for your kind words.

    I agree with mytwopals, I have a hard time with 2'' blocks I don't wanna even think about the words I'd use trying to piece blocks that small lol
    You're doing an awesome job :)
