Itty Bitty Patchwork

 My friend Hope has been making teeny tiny, itty bitty patchwork blocks for a while now. They are the cutest things! She was inspired by the full size Farmers Wife blocks...which are all of 6 sqaure inches when finished...to create mini versions using the leftover pieces of fabric. Genius!

While I have admired them on Instagram and over on her blog, the thought had never crossed my mind to make any myself, because let's face it, the full size ones pretty much do my head in :) I may have even called her, well, crazy.

Hope has the last laugh though, because while constructing the June blocks for my Some Kind of Wonderful, I discovered I had to make my OWN little minis for the Sewing Block.

 Just look at the size of that! Is it not the cutest thing ever?


And mini log cabins...get outta here! To my surprise, I found making them quite...fun?....relaxing?....exciting even?...and found my mind wandering to what cute projects I could make with such fun, itty bitty blocks!

SOMEBODY STOP ME!!!!

(sorry Hope...you did warn me they were addictive LOL)

They are so cute. I did find that sewing these blocks was the best bit of the sewing block ...... I dod not enjoy making the sewing block but once I got past it I was on a roll! Enjoy and have fun. Hugs

Hehe - you'll have baby blocks all over the place if the addiction takes hold! It probably IS crazy, but a very understandable crazy, yes? ;)

Oddly enough, I think they are a bit easier than the big blocks. And as you say, relaxing, exciting, and definitely fun!
