    This is a whopping 5-1/4" x 3-1/2" quilt I did for a contest. It had to have a title so I named it "Cozy Comfort". It has 54 pieces. I didn't win but the Amish girl who did had the smallest quilt there of something like l" by 2" if I recall correctly. She did a sq. in a sq. and it surely was a OBW!! We don't know how she did it!! Hope you enjoy my mini! I decided not to hand quilt it, but wanted the charm of it being hand tied.

    Here is Cozy Comfort

    Wowee that is small and for the Amish girl to do even smaller? Well I would be ready for the men in white coats!

    Will you hang this little gem on your Christmas tree?

    Wow, what a great response on one of my earlier works! You guys are something else! I don't think it was that good but sure am glad everyone enjoyed it and have been inspired to do something quick and little (maybe not this little - ha ha). I think I did it nearly 20 yrs ago and remember drawing up my own pattern and paper piecing it when I never knew anyone else had ever paperpieced before! I started on PP'g on typing paper, but then moved to the cheapest kind of tissue paper I could find (it worked better). Today I just use the scented dryer sheets to piece on and leave them in the quilt! Gives it stability.

    Thank you so much:

    WVdek - it fits perfectly propped in a country shelf (quaker type) now but would look cute on the tree but the ornaments are about a half a foot deep on the tree so it would look lost - hahaha
