    My Quilting Buddy received a big bag of scraps from her sister. We sifted and sorted through them. I took the little pieces and made this little top for her as a thank you. Now my QB is going to quilt it and finish it up to give to her sister. The small squares finish at 1/2 inch-total quilt about 9" x 12".

    Thanks everyone. 90% of my wee ones are used with small sized scraps--trimmings from scrap bin. So always a challenge to figure out how to place things. The squares were made from quick piecing with leftover 1 " strings. I like playing around with pieces to utilize the longer 1 inch strings better. One loses so much in the seam allowances otherwise. The green inner border I did cut from a 3 1/2 inch scrap strip about 12" long and that was given to me.

    Nice job on a tiny little quilt-miniatures are really fun and worth trying if you haven't. Very pretty!

    The smallest I've been saving is 2-1/2 squares oro strips, but after reading some of these ideas, and seeing Oksewglad's cute quilt, I think I'll go smaller :lol:

    Thanks rOs and the rest. I've been working on quite a few here of late. My friend just got it HQ and given to her sister. She was delighted and found a spot to hang it in her living room. Sorry no pic of the finished quilt.
