    My tiny block

    Just putzing around today trying to figure out a size chart idea and I made this, it is the tiniest complex block I've ever made. It is 3.25 inches.

    Good for you! I don't think I could even hold pieces as small as you need for a block that small!
    A quilt is like a good life. It's full of mistakes, but, in the end, it looks pretty good.

    I'll say it's tiny. My arthritis would prevent me from handling such small pieces.

    Good looking block. So tiny. I want to say "precious" but would you say that for a tiny quilt block? Nice work.

    A really nice block, K. What are putting together? A small wall hanging perhaps?

    I love tiny...... there is a quilt along going on at Quiltmaker.com, called ITTY BITTY QUILT . It's a BOM and it's FREE. Started in Jan. We did a little 4 in. bowtie block, so you can easily catch up. It's a good way to use up scraps!!!

    Cute block. Never saw a pinwheel in the center of the Double Monkey Wrench block before.

    Really cute. No way would I even give this tiny block a try, no with the arthritis in my hands.
    You did a great job on this!
