Miniature Quilt Ornaments Done

Each of these little miniature quilts measures 2-1/2" to 3" square and they were really fun to do.

The hardest part was the binding. I made my binding strips only 1-1/4" wide.

You know how when you're sewing the binding on a quilt, you get going along really well on a straight side and then you come to a corner and it slows you down?

Well, on these little thingamabobs, it seems like I could take only about five stitches and I was to another corner.

But then again, I guess that made the binding go quickly. Just not much to 'em.

Now I'm starting to wonder just what gifts I should apportion them out to. (I plan on tying them on the top of packages and then the recipients can use them as tree ornaments if they wish.) Maybe I need to make more of them. (Somebody stop me, please!) Nope. I think this is gonna have to be my quota for this year. I'm crossing this little project off my list and moving on to other Christmas things.

Hi, amandajean - Thanks for taking the time to comment. Only trouble is I know I'm going to give them all away and now wish I had made more so I'd have three or four to keep for our tree. Oh, well . . . NEXT year!
