Happy hump day!  Today I’m here to share some fun little (and by little I mean tiny!) blocks with you.  My awesome quilting bee met last month and decided that our challenge for July would be to create the smallest version we could of some of our favorite blocks (or just any block miniaturized).

I have recently joined an amazing group of local quilters for our own “sewing bee”.  We met for the first time last month and came up with a challenge to create a block inspired by a photo for the next month.  The only requirement for the blocks was that the finished measurement be in 3″ … Continue reading
