After reading about Klosjes day, I decided to devote stitching time on Saturdays to these little blocks! Each finishes at 2 3/8″. They’re tiny. But addictive. Seriously addictive. Perfect use for a charm pack or two.
While there are other methods of making them I’m hand piecing them, as I love to hand piece and love Y-seams for the continuous stitching that they make possible. I’m using 1″ squares and half hexagons from the 90-degree 1-inch hexagons in the Patchwork of the Crosses Inklingo collection. I was able to print three of the half hexagons on each charm and have a plan for the border for this quilt, however large it ends up, using that third half-hexagon from each charm.
I have no idea how many of these little beauties I’m going to make, but as Mr. Q.O. is quite taken by them, I have a feeling it may be as many as is needed to make a lap quilt for him.
An alternative plan is to make a doll’s quilt using these tiny blocks and then start another set using the shapes using the long half hexagon from the 1.5″ 90-degree hexagon collection and the 3″ squares from the Drunkard’s Path collection to make somewhat larger blocks.
The other night Lester decided to “help” when I was working on the Quaker Patchwork cross-stitch. Great huge kitty paws on the chart make it rather difficult to keep one’s place!
Smudge was, as usual, perfecting his lounging.
