Tiny Piecing

In yesterday’s blog about the Moda Blockhead 2 block having tiny pieces, I mentioned a class that I took while at the Vermont Quilt Festival last summer.  The class was Tiny Piecing and was taught by Lynn Harris.   The class description was – Learn tips and tricks that make working small easier, piecing tiny stars, and other small blocks as well as intuitive piecing.

IMG_1040I did enjoy the class, but decided that working small wasn’t what I really wanted to do. This is the piece that I made with the quarter square triangle finishing at 1/4″  It’s hardly visible. It is in the right block, bottom row.  A four patch finished at 1/4″ is in the left block.

I also made a 3″star.  IMG_1039

IMG_1031We were taught to improvise with tiny left over strips.  These are my blocks.

This is Lynn’s quilt.  I like the basic white with a little color.  I might make something like this in the future.  IMG_1030

 

 

 

IMG_1022Lynn’s blocks are amazing.  She uses every last scrap of fabric.  I think that if one started to make blocks with small pieces on a regular basis, they could be made up quickly. It might be interesting to make one or two after sewing a regular size quilt.  They would add up quicker than you might think.  IMG_1024    IMG_1026

 

Have a great day and happy quilting.
