    As a miniaturist I love what you have done! My first thought was finally someone else who does something like what I do! Lots of good ideas I want to try. I love the tulip. I make bookmarks and I might try to fit one into a bookmark.

    Where did you get the directions for a 6" mariner's compass? Always wanted to make one but I don't like paper piecing so I haven't tried. I do have a "Block" I make that allows for something similar just not as intricately disected into as many points. It would make a beautiful hot pad! I make a lot! of hot pads. So I am always translating what I see into that format. If I have to try paper piecing I might be tempted for this block.

    I know what you mean about throwing away only slivers. I do that too. A lady saved scraps for me from a quilt she made and they were 1/2"-3/4" wide. I made her a checkbook cover and a coin purse by strip piecing them and cutting out blocks from the joined strips just to prove I could. It was fun to challenge myself like that. I use a scant 1/8"- scant 1/4" seam allowance on something like that.

    K are you due a trip to Specsavers....they are FAR from perfect, BUT I am happy with them lol, some of the blocks I just adlib, and stitched the strips as they were 'wonky', no pattern just got on with it as long as the colours looked right next to each other thats all I have given any thought to really, if a pattern catches my eye, then I try and make it, I don't like the bird house, that ones too 'boring' so will find another one tee hee!!

    Foundation piecing is definitely the way for precision, although it takes abit of getting used to, and I have been doing my fair share of rippppppppppppppping and cusssssssssssssssssing :roll: :lol: :shock: :D

    I think I was just blown away by the colours and range of patterns but I didn't see any wonkies! But then I think we're always most critical of our own work! I've never done foundation piecing - on the list to try one day.... :D

    Izy these are great! It's hard to get a feel for how small they really are - how about a picture of a few blocks with your hand next to them?! :D

    OH MY Izy

    They are Ab Fab - I spy some of my fabrics in there. Amazing how you've managed to coordinate everything. I love the LC block - did you say it was on quilterscache. I am currently making a quilt for my MIL using 12" different blocks - I'll have to visit the site.

    Thanks again for sharing your one talented girl :wink:

    Now THAT sounds tempting, great idea, I would love to have a go :D

    It's already warming up alot so quilting big pieces is a no no, so I usually try and find some hand piecing that I can sit in the shade and sew, so when you have the tute ready I would love to have a go, yes please :D
