It seems most of my sewing lately has involved itty bitty pieces. Like the second block in the Temecula Monday Mini QAL, for instance.
That whole block measures 4" unfinished. The little block in the center? That's a tiny 1.5" finish. Itty bitty HSTs. Itty. And bitty.
And more itty bitty HSTs turn up in the 6" blocks I'm doing for the 365 Challenge. Those little half inch triangles involve a lot of breath-holding. And occasional swearing.
Those two put me at only a month behind in that Challenge. Well, a year and a month, but who's counting?
For a bit of relief, I managed to sew another Burgoyne Surrounded block together. (That's #10!) These finish at 15", so practically feel like circus tents after all those bitty blocks.
I haven't pressed any of the above blocks, yet. Need to get out the iron and ironing board and do a major flattening session, as you can see.
And look who turned up while I was shuffling through my scraps -
Just when I thought I'd thrown them off the trail, here come those monkeys again...
Linking up with ScrapTastic Tuesday. Come see what everyone is up to with all their bright happy scraps!
