Patchie's Tiny Blocks

"Patchie" in France did the blocks at 2" by hand.

It was fun each week to see her block next to her thimble for scale.

She made tiny quilts (about 5" x 9") of 8 blocks each.




She showed us the back so we could see how she did it---with stitching lines in pencil

It's not only her sewing that's admirable. Her fabric choices are very clever.

This just boggles my mind! What incredible patience and skill it must take to make these blocks in such a small scale. Inspiring.

Wonderful little blocks, I do enjoy making small quilts, and it is great practice for patterns and piecing.
