    Running with an miniature idea, thanks n2scraplvr

    Recently n2scraplver posted a quick and easy quilt plan.

    http://www.quiltingboard.com/picture...d-t175057.html

    I'm always up for a challenge so I downsized her plan. Instead of 4" 4patches, mine are 1". I also made fewer blocks for this mini.

    First pic--just the center of my "quilt"
    Second--if I add a small border it will fit AAQI requirements of less than 9 x 12
    Third--putting it on point makes it larger and not for AAQI, but,,,,,

    Wow! Fantastic, G! WTG, girl!!! You got it now! #2 looks super! All 3 look great, but by having the darkest border as in #2, it adds depth, warmth, hominess, connection, balance and brings the white stars forward the most!!! It actually coordinates best with the colors of the flowers you chose too. Oh, now I see that you eliminated the alternate blocks so this makes a quick quilt even quicker!! Great!!

    p.s. yes, QuiltnNan is right! The navy blue one on pt. loses all the depth you had with the darkest border of #2. Can you see how the lighter navy color washes away the effect?

    Gladie; you are at it again! Making tiny pieces look beautiful and fun to make. I like the star pattern that immerges with the white pieces.

    Look at my first picture, can you see 4 blocks like the one I am attaching in the 4 corners. They are joined together by the pieced "sashings" which form another block in the middle. Hope this helps

    I loved this pattern too but haven't had time to experiment as yet. I actually like the 3rd one best but all layouts are great.

    Totally agree. I had to turn my head to make sure they were still there! ha ha. Is this regularly-pieced or paper pieced? You did a great job.

    Thanks so much for the kind remarks. This is not PP, I struggle with liking PP'ing.Putting blocks on point always brings in a new perspective, and a different look. If you notice in the 4P all the dark squares are running at the same diagonal; they are vertical in the on point pic. I rotated the pic so the darks are horizontal; do you notice a difference? are the stars more noticeable?
