Slim pickins...

HI all: It has been slim pickings as far as quilt stuff goes this week...overtime, and just no time to quilt. Next week? Hope it is better!! I have been hand quilting this little quilt below...I love this, it is just a blast.
This one, you may recall.
Pieced a couple tiny nine patches, 2 inches finished. Threads and all...in all their glory!!


Hope everyone is doing great! Take some quilty time for you!

You are nuts--2" finished 9 patches? How small does a scrap have to be before you can part with it? At this rate, lady, you will never ever run out of scraps :)

Such fun things you have posted but girl, you are a glutton for punishment with those itty bitty 2 inch finished nine patches! WOW, I am impressed esp since I am not crazy about anything smaller than 1.5 cut!

Even a little piecing or stitching adds up over time, right?

Lovely little quilt, and 2 inch 9-patches? WOW! That will be an amazing quilt when you get it together. I hope your week goes well, and you are able to find some quilty time for yourself!
