And I ended up with this. Those are teeny-tiny 1" blocks, 62 of them to be exact, on a background of Kona White.
I had to make some adjustments to my background blocks because I didn't account for seam allowances when I cut them all but that was no big deal. I got to work sewing and was pleasantly surprised by how quickly it went. I even had success lining up all the little seams! Those little blocks finish to only a 1/2" square. This is by far the smallest thing I've ever made.
I decided to try hand quilt again using some perle cotton in white that I picked up at Joanne's a few months ago. Several tries/epic fails later I'm echo quilting the heart. Now to get this baby finished in time for the May 30th deadline to submit! I've got 48 hours. No biggie. Stay tuned for the big reveal of the finished product!
I'm linking up with this weeks WIP Wednesday over at Freshly Pieced.
