Can you say Tiny?


Two weeks ago I went to It's a Gatherin'.  It was a quilt show of sorts, with lots of vendors and not many quilts. I found this beautiful necklace and some how it followed me home.  Check out her miniatures at Me and My Stitches.  They stole my heart because my favorite type of quilt piecing is paper piecing.  This tiny square has 33 pieces of paper in it.

So I got to thinking, I had a book on minatures. I also remembered I had two good friends who are in the Missouri River Quilt guild with me and that they needed name tags. (If we don't wear a name tag, we have to pay a fine).


My squares aren't as small as Julie's but I think they are still pretty impressive. 
I finished these two, and then got an email from my cousin who asked if I could make her a name tag too.

So I made this one for her. 

Such fun!  Congratulations girls, think of all the money I will be saving you!
