Tiny little paper piecing blocks

I have finally made a start on my paper piecing blocks for the 318 Patchwork Pattern Quilt-Along organised by Allegory. I missed last week linky party but I was determined I wouldn't missed this one. The blocks in the book are tiny and for the quilt-along, the idea was to enlarge them to 6' but I have enlarged mine to 3.5' only so I can transform them into Christmas ornament.

The heart was the perfect block to start with as it is quite straight forward.
I made a few more this week

The mug wasn't bad either

apart for the tiny handle!

I then tried the apple which isn't that difficult but fiddly because of all the small pieces.

And of course these make 5 blocks for the 350-blocks challenge, taking my November total to 7!

  1. These are great and make such fun ornaments. Can't wait to see what else you make.

  2. Those blocks are adorable and are going to make great ornaments ... I must be a lazy quilter because I took one look at that teeny tiny fussy mug handle and knew that if I were making it, it would be replaced by a bias strip appliquéd on afterward :-)


Thank you for stopping by, I hope you enjoyed your visit. I love reading your comments and I always try to respond to everyone. Thanks again and I hope you come back to see me.
