A funny... :)

This was funny...I was driving in an area where big signs were posted, "Lock your car! Hide valuables!" So....I put all my fat quarters I had just purchased in the glove box and locked them in. I thought about that later...Hee!! You can see what I think is valuable! I got these for $1.00 each at my local quilt shop, a huge sale is underway. Pretty!!
This is how far I have gotten on the miniature quilt. Each little section of the border measures 1/2 inch. It is very labor intensive! I could have made two full sized tops in the time that it has taken me to make a reasonably accurate miniature. I have learned so much, though. Don't stretch the pieces! Cut and sew very accurately. The 1/4 inch seam allowance is a key, and trim the seams to smaller than that, almost to 1/8Th inch. It is shaping up....
Hope everyone has a wonderful day! Remember to hide your valuables!!

You can not always put a $ amount of some items...just like our quilts - they may be from scraps completely - so cost wise - not much.

Love that little quilt...I would need someone to hold a magnifying glass for me to make one that small.

Great work there Lady!

You couldn't be any cute-er! That's a fun story.

Okay can I say how impressed I am with you latest little quilt? You effort and focus to detail is really showing up and paying off.

Be Proud with Love, *karendianne.

I totally understand what you think is valuable. I always lock up my purchases from the quilt shop in the car.
Your mini quilt is beautiful, and I admire you so much for working away on something soooooo teeny!
