To make a change from full size quilts, I’ve gone a bit smaller for my latest bit of sewing. The pattern is the Sew Tiny Sampler and was stitched using foundation paper piecing (thread reel and sleepy cat for scale).

I might look as though I'm talking to you, but inside my head I'm sewing.

Oh Good God SIT, Have you nothing else to do ??!!!

Seriously, its gorgeous and I expect it didnt keep trying to escape off the table when you layered it either ?
So you'll be entering this into FOQ this year ????

Im in awe of the patience you must have had and thinking of the not one, but two, miniature quilt books I received for Christmas this year ...... Mmmmnnnnnn

Replace “patience” with “swearing” and you’ll be nearer the construction process, though it was very easy to layer it.

As to entering a quilt for FOQ, I’d rather spend the time making a quilt or two for Project Linus than a show standard quilt.

Beautiful! How did those tiny bits not disappear into the sewing machine? I rarely sew tiny things, but when I do I find they poke down into the hole under the needle. You must be using a very fine and sharp needle. Congratulations on having the patience and skill to do it.

@Sheilago This was done using foundation paper piecing so the small pieces of fabric were stitched onto a larger piece of paper. I must admit that I didn’t bother to change to a finer needle, but I did use a 60 wt thread.
