Today is the kickoff day of the Small, Smaller, Smallest Blog Hop hosted by the amazing Carol of Just Let Me Quilt Blog. I am looking forward to seeing all of the teeny, tiny pieces that will be created for this hop.
I have always enjoyed the challenge of making small pieces in my sewing journey. It must be that the beginning of my sewing life started by making doll clothing.
For my project, I have selected a paper pieced mini quilt. The Pineapple pattern has always been one of my favorites and paper piecing makes it so precise and tiny. The entire piece measures out at 9 1/2 inches and is a completely scrappy project.
For the backing I used just a bunch of small pieces that were in the scrap bin.
If you are interested in trying this pattern, a mini pdf of the three inch block can be found at The Little Mushroom Cap.
Another "small" bit of sewing that I completed was this year's 18" doll uniform for the grandchildren's school auction. This year instead of a full uniform, I did a skort like many of the girls choose to wear.
Other than fabric postcards and mug rugs, another small sewing project that I have done in the past are puzzle pieces. These are great fun for swapping.
Sewing small pieces is instant gratification. I am looking forward to seeing what others are creating on a small scale. I hope you will enjoy them too. You can find other SMALL bits in these links below.
