Sewcialites Block 1

Fat Quarter Shop is currently hosting the Sewcialites quilt along. With 3", 6" and 9" size options, there are 36 blocks being released one week at a time on the Jolly Jabber blog. One block a week on top of my other sewing sounded like a lot, but I dove in on week one and made this 3" block.

I didn't really have a plan other than to make a few blocks, but I haven't made a second one yet. Someone recommended that I use this block as a rug in the dollhouse we are (very slowly) building. I think that's a lovely idea. Or maybe I'll finish it into a bed quilt for the dollhouse. We'll see.

This tiny little block has 45 pieces in it! And these are the tiniest HSTs I've ever sewn at 1/2" finished.

I think there's more fabric in the seam allowance than in the front!

      Thank you, Andrée. They came from my sizable collection of Alison Glass Sunprints. It always makes me happy when I use those in a project. :-)
