    Stellar!! I don't think I could make my fingers handle that many tiny pieces!
    If you see someone without a smile, give them one of yours!

    You did great! It is beautiful! Wow. Would you take a picture with something beside it like a quart jar to help us get perspective?

    I had saved all the little triangles cut off of 2 1/2" strips making another quilt. I made over one hundred HST's and put them in a pattern with a pinwheel in the center. I think there were about 244 pieces in the 12 in square.

    Gorgeous! I think it would be stunning to put this on a thin partical board back with batting (something with a little loft) and frame it with a barn wood frame.

    Actually, I had considered that - I have made other miniatures, not as small pieces, and not scrappy - they were made with reproduction fabrics. Maybe I will have to post some of them too. I would love to join a swap, I'm just concerned about having the deadline. I was reading another blog about people not fulfilling their commitment and I definitely would not want to do that. I will look at your guidelines, maybe I could make something ahead of time???

    Love minis too, when i made small quilts using 1 inch squares I put them on a light fusible web, then sewed together like in my avatar ( it has 1 inch, 2 inch and 1 X 2 inch pieces) Great job, don't know if i would try just sewing together, more power to you!

    Well done you for recycling! I have done the same and 'saved' a lot of fabric that would have ended up being thrown away. I have finished one and I am still in the process of finishing off a couple more quilts with these scraps. Amazing what you can achieve with the scraps. Beautiful miniature quilt!

I would finish it off with a plain border unless you prefer to keep the theme and have a scrappy border framed between 2 plain 1/2"-3/4" plain borders? Either way would look lovely.

    This is right up my alley! I'm saving 1" strips now for a scrappy mini. Yours is beautiful and I too would go digging in the trash for scraps! haha. I can't bear to throw out 1/4" pieces!! The reason yours is so interesting is from all the fabrics you gathered up! They look great together! Super job too!

    Really neat mini. You and a friend of mine would have a ball. I save all my to small to use pieces in a bag for her. Then in a few months I see those little pieces come back in a quilt. She will actually start out with 3/4" squares and go from there. finished pieces are 1/4".

    i would love to make a tiny quilt like this. i wonder if using batting and machine quilting would work across all of the seams. beautiful quilt!

    My shaky hands would never allow me to stitch that small of blocks, love it though, I hate tossing scrap of any size.
    Good job love all the colors and pattern.
    Freedom is costly and quilting keeps us busy...
