Tiny Strings - My Quilt for Another Little Quilt Swap

Finished in early January, I waited to share this little 15 inch quilt until after swap decisions were made for Another Little Quilt Swap and it was sent on it's way.



I called it Tiny Strings because of those triangles which began as bits of string quilt fabric left after cutting shapes for a bed-size quilt.  They each measure 7/8 inch and contain 2-to-4 fabrics.  This quilt began when I came across a small ziplock containing a bunch of these sweet triangles that, I guess, I was unable to toss.

This photo, taken just after I began quilting it, shows some of the tiny strings and gives a little feeling of the scale.


I took a few other detail photos while I quilted it.  This quilt was made before Double Dare and you can see that the doodle-y style quilting in that quilt started here.

I can't believe how tiny that is! Each piece, I mean. That's incredible to me. Your project looks wonderful, and your partner HAS to love it!

Miniatures are such fun--and add to that the fact that the tiny triangle is itself pieced. Gorgeous! Lovely quilting too.

I love the scrappy HST. And, I didn't realize how small your quilt was until I saw the photo with the dime on it--that really put things into perspective. Amazing!
