Midget block #107 - Garden Maze

I'm a little late this week with my tiny Tuesday but after all the sewing on Monday - things around the house needed tending to - kids play dates happened and I finally got to sew a bit this morning while waiting for the HIPPY instructor to get here. I guess I did have time for a walk since she is 45 minutes late. Oh well, maybe I'll have Emmy go for a bike ride with me after lunch and before we go to pick up her brother.

Garden Maze was paper pieced in 12 tiny sections and then sewn together. I really need to lay out my blocks and see how many more I need before calling these blocks done. They have been so fun to make and I have learned and tried so many new things with them over the last 4 years. The majority of these are free over at sentimentalstitches.com if you'd like to challenge yourself and try some new things. I've learned how to paper piece, hand piece, hand applique and work on a more precise 1/4 inch seam allowance. All baby steps to being able to make the more complicated quilts I love to look at.

  2. When you finish this one you should really think about a Dear Jane or a Nearly Insane. So many quilts to look forward to!

I love to read your comments. Yahoo is currently having some issues with telling other servers to reject messages due to the third party server that sends the comments to e-mail. I'll try to respond to all messages but I may miss some as they are not all being sent to my e-mail. Hopefully this issue will be resolved soon.
