For my project, I deem Mondays to be Micro Mondays! Today’s sweet treat is a little tiny quilt using a Kaffe Fasset charm pack. I love Kaffe Fasset prints. This baby is 3 1/4″ wide x 3 3/4″ high. The strips (before quilting) were 3/4″ wide x 5″ long. I strip pieced them, chopped them up, and then reattached them together. The boarders started out as 1″ wide. I generally don’t bind something this small because it distorts the shape of the finished product. So I put a backing on the front, right side to right side, sewing around the edges, and leaving a small gap at the bottom. I turned the quilt (LOL, it’s not really a quilt is it?) pressed and stitched closed.
As you will notice, the block sizes are still a little variable. I’m still trying to figure out which presser foot is best for micro quilting. I used a zipper foot on most of the row joins but got frustrated when the rows kept being pushed into the machine. So I switched back to my normal presser foot and you can see the results. Two of the rows are really narrow. The perfectionist in me wants to rip them out and do them over but I generally override that part of my personality when it comes to hobbies and I just keep the mistakes. They remind me of what not to do next time.
