Tiny House Block

Mini Kaffe 0071 225x300 Tiny House Block

This weekend I was working on a miniature version of a house block I used in a quilt for the June issue of McCall’s Quilting. How cute is this block?!? Finished size is just 2 1/8″ square. The pattern to make the mini quilt will be given as a web bonus on this site sometime around the end of March, but I just had to share the cuteness right away. You start with tiny paper foundations:

These were super easy to draw up using EQ7! Next, you stitch up the individual sections:

Then sew them together! The only problem is, now I can’t stop. In fact, I’m going to recreate my entire feature quilt in tiny proportions. Here’s the start of it:

More later!
