WiP Wednesday #29

Whoo boy. What a week! Two things have worked against my being productive this week, and the first one I wouldn't change for anything. We took a quick trip over to Eugene, Oregon, to visit friends and just get out of Boise for a while. It's been years since we took anything resembling a vacation. Man, did we need that.

The second reason is all the smoke from fires surrounding the treasure valley. Between sinus yickiness and headaches, I've been too tired to be inspired. I did manage to get a little something done, though.

This is absolutely the smallest mini quilt I've made. It's so bitty! The binding was really a trick, but I think it finishes it off nicely. It's going to be a Christmas ornament for our (appropriately) tiny tree, this year. Here's a shot of the back, and a better view of the binding. What do you think?

What's the smallest quilt you've worked on? Did you enjoy it? I'll have more to report next week, I promise! (I'll have to - the Eagle craft show is coming up fast!)

It looks like many of you were really productive last week!

Fabric Fascination chimed in with some adorable Christmas stockings and hexies.

Sweet Dreams by Sarah has an enviable stack of Broken Dishes blocks, as well as a few other fun projects.

Happier Than A Bird shared some major finishes, including a hexie quilt. Isn't it gorgeous??

Patsy's Patchwork shared this adorable toaster cover. I love the fabrics she chose! I'm always a sucker for sunflowers.

Terry Aske is working on some truly drool-worthy improv piecing. I love her idea of making blocks this way using similar colors.

And finally, Ann from Magpie Quilts blew me away with her progress on a Sudoko style quilt. What's not to love?

Thanks for tuning in this week! If you'd like to link up and share what you've been working on, please do. :)

Yours in Productivity,
Quiltsy WiP

Your mini quilt is adorable, such a good idea to make a quilted Christmas tree ornament. I may have to try that.

Love your tiny quilt! My smallest quilts have been mug rugs (about 6"x8")

What an adorable little quilt! I love mini's, have made quite a few, the smallest one was around 5 inches square.
