    It is really great. One question! What size are the squares in the chain. You did a great job.

    Hurray for minis - especially the hand quilted ones. You've done a great job. We need our own topic site.

    Looks like the squares must be about 3/4" The unit block count is 15x 25 plus borders.

    I'm having a hard time with the size...(relational). So big were the squares when you started? (Good job, BTW)...it's really pretty and doing miniature requires so much more precision than a bit larger.

    I strip pieced it just like I would a regular size one, except I cut my strips 1-1/4 inches wide instead of the standard 2-1/2". After 1/4 inch seam allowances, they ended up at about 3/4".
