    A mini right size for AAQI, but going elsewhere.

    I needed a thank you gift so made this little bit up. It measures 8 x 11 so is AAQI size, but not going there. Crazy blocks measure 2 inches finished.

    Way to go Gladie! It is beautiful. That border fabric looks like one of the Kansas Troubles line. I love everything they design.
    Reading, cooking, sewing in retirement! Heaven!

    A "big" thanks to everyone. Yes, Leslie, most are KT fabrics. Leftovers from the PPing trims I am doing for the FWS Pony Club blocks of the week featured here on the board. I timed how long this took me to make from first string to sewing on the binding; it was 5 1/2 hours with GK interruptions. Then a half hour to HS the binding--one of my favorite quiltmaking processes.

    Beautiful little thing. I love minis! Your fabric choices are perfectly scaled to this tiny wonder. Hurray for scraps! Beautiful colors too.

    I had wondered ... and thought I'd asked in my original post ... guess not!!
    It takes more time than we think to do things, doesn't it?
    Look at the # hours we have put into each of the PC + FWS blocks.
    *gasp* for the whole quilt!!!
    Most would never understand that it'd be possible.

    I'm still in awe and am ever-so-happy for the person you will be giving it to.
    What a Special Thank You, you have made!

    Thanks for the kind words, QE. I decided to see how long it takes as I am often asked how much time I have in my little ones. I have lots of little blocks that I have made up and plan layouts around those blocks. Have to get my papers all together for this afternoon's appt! (sigh)
