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.
I 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.
This is Lynn’s queen quilt made with 3″ stars. It is absolutely stunning.
We 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.
Lynn’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.
Have a great day and happy quilting.
