Oh, Rhonda you did a great job. If that is a checkbook cover, your pieces of fabric must have been very small!

Thanks! The small pieces just happen when you use my shortcuts. The smallest piece is usually just 1 1/4" but I do make keychains using a 1" square.

These are just a few of my favorites. I have been making these for 11 years for a local gift shop and Hotpads are my best selling line.

Oh, Rhonda, those are beautiful! :lol: Are they paper pieced? Or do you just work with really small pieces?

I started the bookmarks about three years ago and they are my number two seller. They are also the top draw for people on my free teaching site online. They are not a lot of time to make and look dramatic.

Thanks! I have shortcuts I use that make the small pieces just happen. When I find a place on here to put my links you can see for yourself on my free teaching site.
