From the first time I saw this in the new magazine "Perfect for Precuts"... I fell in love with it. Simple block, but just what I wanted to make. It is called Mini Make-Do.
The selecting fabric was easy as I just took strips from a kit intended for another project (that is not illegal).
Into little pieces...many ...many little pieces the fabric went.
Here's a single block. It will finish at 4 1/2".
These fabrics are all 30's reproductions. They always seem to be "happy" prints.
And here is my finished top. I made it the size of how ever many blocks I got out of the fabric kit. Now I'm deciding if I should add a border and make it into a baby quilt, or leave it this size...quilt it and use it for a wall hanging in my kitchen. So many decisions.
Oh yes...the leftovers. I have a new template for the "Twister". It measures only 1 1/2", so the little blocks are only an inch square. I want to frame the first project and don't know what I'll do with the second one. I have a few leftovers from it...but think they'll hit the round file for Neverland. (interpretation...I'm throwing them away!)
