Tiny But Mighty

This tiny quilt (6 inches x 6 inches) was a kit I purchased at a shop hop somewhere in my quilting travels.  Who could possibly resist making such a cute flower?

Although tiny, this quilt is mighty.  It incorporated machine piecing, hand applique, machine applique, hand quilting, machine quilting and embroidery.  PLUS I got to practice tacking down the binding with my sewing machine.

I’m always looking for ways to use scraps.  A set of four would make a nice gift for “someone” (perhaps the author) to use as coasters…for a cold beverage, on the porch, on a hot summer day, overlooking my garden, sharing a laugh with family and friends, petting my dogs…oh, sorry I was daydreaming there!  I’ve just talked myself into making more tiny quilts, how hard was that?

Do you have any tiny quilt adventures?

    Need some more scraps (trying to hand you a challenge bag through the computer)? This piece is definitely tiny but mighty! Besides loving the colors in the flower, I think the background fabric is wonderful to show off the stitches surrounding the flower – nice!
