    I missed the in between picture on this one. It went faster than the last one. After 6 weeks of not doing it I guess it took me a bit to warm up. Though I still get sidetracked quiet easily, and take a few more breaks than usual. 2 more blocks now and I will be ready to figure out how it will go together.

    A miniature quilt, way to go. I saw a lady on Simply that does miniature quilts. Guess what, it takes just as long to do the miniature quilts as it does the larger one.....................so she said. Happy quilting. It's adorable.

    here we go again, with another 120 little itty bittys. I just got them pressed, it was a busy day yesterday. so didn't get much done, jsut had them sewn together. it usually goes faster after that. Though someone might want to do a piece count when I am done, I did and nearly fell off of my chair.

    Nice I'm liking the way this is looking can't wait to see more of it :)

    Still think you're nuts using that size blocks, but guess the world does need a few nuts as it makes life and quilts more interesting ;)

    And what block is that? So far I have posted three different ones. I found these in a book of squares and they have the measurements in a number of sizes. I am still not sure what I was thinking when I decided to do the 7 inch one.

    dvseals, I always figured I was a little cracked, it is good to know that I have confirmation on it.

    I am close to getting ready to take more pictures, there is a few more pieces to this one if you want to believe it. I am going to leave the counting to someone else.

    So here it is. The next little bit to the current square. If I keep working it should be done before supper tonight. of course it is just after two now so that leaves me lots of time to finish the 15 squares.

    Might be time to buy one of those small irons to help protect your tips. It looks real good though. DH declared a "holy cow, that's small" lol.

    Yes a clover mini iron is a handy tool to have when working on small pieces.

    I will have to look into buying one since I seem to have a thing for this kind of block. So note to self, buy a clover mini iron.

    So I am moving right along and have a chance at still getting it done before supper. The kids came home etc and took up some time, they are all occupied now. and there is only a little left in the block to do.

    They are a 7" square, I was in a strange mood when I was picking fabric so who knows what it will all look like when I am done.

    There is a quarter in the pictures to show how small we are talking about.

    In the book I have Deb, it is called buffalo ridge. They are called all sorts of things I believe, depends on where you are from etc.

    And here is the latest one done, Just as DH pulls up, just in time for supper. So I made it, just in time to post.

    Just one more block to go, and I hope to get it done tomorrow.

    Thank you so much everyone. It has been fun doing them. THere are 60 of the first ones and 15 each of the three other ones that are done, giving a total so far of 105 blocks. I have one set left of 15 so it will be a total of 120 blocks for the quilt.

    Did anyone count the number of pieces? I counted 57 in this last one. I could be wrong though it is hard to count that high.

    This is the start of the last block. There are only 90 of them this time. it is a slightly different block than the others but it still has the same cross in it.
