I’ve been working hard on these tiny beauties:
They finish 3.5 inches! They broke my back but I love them. I think I like the pink Anna Maria Horner rose one best, along with the similar Amy Butler blue rose on the top row. We hesitate to use large scale prints in these situations but it can work!
Here they are with a few other recent penny sampler blocks:
The 4-patch block is called a “4-penny patch.” That is how the quilt got its name. I keep saying this, but I am definitely going to make a whole quilt of those in the future. I think they’d make a great bee block.
You can see this post here to remember my previous penny sampler blocks. I love this quilt. It is making me feel very contemplative about what kind of quilts I love to make and how. I’ll write more about that soon.
In the meantime, I am teaching my beginner’s class this Saturday! It is going to be so much fun. I’m also finishing up my last two Your 1st Quilt tutorials and I hope to have them posted before Saturday.
