    Many Mini's

    Here are a handful of 4.5" blocks that I've made recently.
    I just decided within the past two weeks that I'm going to make a hundred twenty or more different 4.5" pieced and appliquéd blocks that depict some of my favorite things and life experiences.
    I have an appliqué white and gray cat to represent my long time (former) quilting helper, a paper pieced walking shoe, an apple, a block that my late mother-in-law made, etc.
    I will make blocks that represent July (birthday month) such as an American Flag and an ice cream cone. I may also appliqué a map of my state onto a block, and use some of my favorite traditional pieced blocks too.

    What a novel idea. Sort of like a fabric charm bracelet.
    No matter how tough life is, it sure beats the alternative.

    what a wonderful idea and keep track of what each mean that way when you pass down the quilt the person will be able to see what each meant.
    this is such a wonderful idea.
    thank you for sharing
    SMILE- it will make everyone wonder what you are up to.
    Stay strong and keep looking up.

    Thanks for the nice comments! Here are a few more I've made in the past month: Also, my little kitty wanted me to play with her. She said "Enough of those time consuming blocks. Oh, some have a crinkly sound. I like the crinkly sound"


    (Some are paper-pieced, some are appliqued, some are traditional pieced).

    What a wonderful idea -- a quilt made up of reminders of various things and times in your life...don't think I'd ever have the patience to do that for myself, and it wouldn't mean a thing to anyone else if I did, probably. But I can't wait to see what your quilt looks like!
