Somewhere around midnight I stitched the last stitch on the binding.
This is my first one, so it did take longer than 3 hours. It will be interesting to see how fast the next one goes.
The directions are in Miniatures in Minutes by Terrie Sandelin. I will have to make a bunch to practice free motion quilting over the close seams–maybe just take tucks in fabric and practice quilting until I can get a smooth curve going. I’d really wanted circles in the “flowers.” But when I saw the angles in random places, ripped out and went with squares.
I went from the miniature to making 12-inch maple leaf blocks for an exchange. it was like returning to a “normal” 8 or 9 knitting needle and worsted after having made socks with a 0. Weird. But it gives another way to get the perspective than the penny in the corner.
