Tiny Tuesday - 5/15

I did not make a block this week. I had planned to make it Monday night and then I got a wild hair and decided to shop for some flowers and I ended up getting home later than I had planned. When I got home, a group of neighbors came over to see my flowers and plants and I asked one of them about removing a bush next to my front door. I just meant like later this week, but he pulled out his ropes and chains, hooked up the tree and pulled it out of the ground within 20 minutes. Woo hoo!! And after all that effort, everyone hung out and drank some beer so I of course had to join them. It would have been rude of me to leave them outside of my place to go inside and sew, right?

And then tonight, I spent the evening prepping the 2 new flower beds I have acquired so that I can actually plant my plants.

So those are my excuses for not having any new Midget blocks to show. As penance, I have decided to have a little giveaway for anyone who links to a post below showing off any blocks they have made recently that are smaller than 9". They can be any kind of blocks - Midget, 4 patches, crumbs, you name it! Just tiny blocks smaller than 9". Just link to a blog post below and I will draw a name on Friday night.

I'm thinking that the prize will be several FQs and/or regular quarter yards of fabric in a colorway of the winner's choosing. And I could probably find a magazine to throw in as well.

And since we are talking tiny blocks, I laid out my Midget blocks so far and took a few shots. I think they look awesome, not that I'm biased or anything! lol

So remember to add a link to your blog post about your tiny blocks for a chance to win my penance! :-D

Sorry, I can't help you since I'm still(fussy)cutting for the AMH Prism QAL. Should be done with that tomorrow & can start sewing rows together though if that counts!

I'd love to win but the only blocks I'm making these days are 19.5 x 19.5 .. ah well. I love all your blocks!

They do look totally awesome. Hopefully you will be back in the routine soon, it would be a shame to waste all the effort you have already put into this quilt.

Your blocks look so wonderful. You'll have to take photos of those flowers too.
