Crazy Quilting in Miniature
Have you seen the beautiful work of Evy in France? I was much inspired by a Victorian Sewing Box that she made and the exquisite teeny tiny work on it. Tiny things have always intrigued me and so I had to have a go at doing a really tiny piece of crazy quilting.
This little piece is only 2 1/2" square. Silk fabrics were the perfect weight and scale.
These are my two favorites of the four blocks I made. I included the thimble for scale! The larger of the blocks is only 3 1/2".
In all, I made four squares. The top two were my first attempts. It's definitely different trying to piece at this scale where none of the pieces is even half an inch wide! As you can see in my new header above, I'm already stitching on one of the blocks!
Isn't this an amazing winter? I can't believe how cold it's been here in Colorado this year. It seems unrelenting. There is a steady flock of birds at my feeders. The juncos are there even into the evening hours. So pretty!
My car sits where it catches the morning sun. The tires and wheel wells must warm up nicely and be out of the wind, because when it's parked there on these snowy days, the birds have been sitting there non-stop!
Stay warm! Greeley was 24 below zero last night! Very unusual for us!
