It's been a strange week. I've felt restless, but at the same time I've had no desire to do anything. Hopefully it passes soon, I've got a mountain of projects I'd like to get finished.
I've only worked on one thing in the past week, and it's such a tiny thing that's it's barely worth mentioning, only I used some of my treasured stash of Bliss, so here goes. About 10 years ago I clipped a foundation piecing pattern from Miniature Quilts magazine, which I think is no longer being published. After setting foundation piecing aside for many years to work on other things, I've picked it up again, I'm sure due in part to the revived interest in it from the blogging community. Foundation piecing is easy. If you've never tried it, definitely take the time to figure it out. You'll be amazed at the sharp points and tiny pieces you can work with.
Here are four teeny tiny houses made with teeny tiny pieces of Bliss. I would normally keep my fingers out of the picture but I wanted to show just how little these houses are. I am in love with them, and since they take so little fabric, I could potentially make hundreds of them. I should make a bed quilt out of blocks this small, but I'm sure I'd get bored long before I'd made the first 50.
Happy Wednesday :-)
