Every Little Bit
As promised, today's quilts feature tiny little pieces:
This lovely quilt is called "Buried Treasure" by Mary K Mouton of Milledgeville, GA. It is one of a series of miniature quilts she has made to explore the range and precision of her Flip-Flop Paper Piecing technique.
Sounds like a class I need to take!
This next one isn't a miniature quilt, but it does have teeny tiny pieces! It is called "Perseverance" (with good reason) and was made by Linda Neal of McKinney, TX, quilted by Jackie Brown. This quilt contains 10,509 half inch hexagons!! It took 16 months to hand baste and hand piece the top. The original pattern is called "Insanity".
All I can say is that it would probably take me more than perseverance to get something like that done. And in 16 short months? I could see working on that for 16 years and not seeing it to fruition. Can you imagine if she chose to hand quilt it - yikes!
I know some of you are working with tiny little hexagons. How is it going?
Next week, a few paper pieced wonders.
