You may remember the other week when Kim tore up her craft room to pass on some PIF items to me and I ended up with a bunch of fabric, ribbon and other random craft supplies for cheapo. Well part of that was a bundle of tons of tiny quilt squares that I have been super excited about playing with and making a small quilt out of. It also included a few yards of maroon corduroy fabric which I plan to use as backing or extra solid squares. So I have spent some time in my craft room over the past few days arranging and rearranging these little squares several different ways on the corduroy. Here are some patterns I have come up with so far. Anywhere the maroon shows through would be a patch of corduroy.
Currently my fave and uses up all but about three squares
scaled down version of #2
this looks cool but would be murder to actually attempt...way too many seams and corners to worry about
kinda cool but I think I'd rather make square-ish patches instead of rows/rings
variation of #6
Here is my kitty's favorite:
P.S. Just how tiny are these tiny quilt squares?
They are just 2.5 inches. That can allow a healthy quarter inch seam allowance on each side which will knock the finished size down to just 2 inches. Yipes. I have some precise and small scale work to do. And I can't wait!
