Tiny Tuesdays have begun...

Well... they were really supposed to have begun way back in November. Jill found these great Midget Blocks for us to work with and we decided to work on them a block a week...

...yeah...

So I am a bit behind...
...and a bit out of sequence.

Tonight I did blocks 1, 2 and 4. Block 3 is a pretty involved paper piecing situation, and working at it at 9:45 PM on a Sunday night after a fairly busy day, after having already messed up ONE paper piecing attempt, was not in the cards. I opted to skip over and do 4, and go back to 3 when I am feeling fresher.

So here they are:
(yes - I did Block 1 in reverse colors -this was NOT intentional. I was going to keep it this way, but accidentally trimmed the block too small when finishing up - so will have to remake it anyway. Ooops.)
I have quite a bit of the pink floral and green fabrics and plan to use them on as many blocks as I can. I also have pink solids and yellow solids that I got in a 'stash reallocation' from Jill - as well as some more green that will compliment these - so I am hoping to take these colors as far as I can go. Since the final layout of these blocks will probably NOT be in numerical order, I think I will be OK.

Now to just keep on these on a regular basis - these three took me a little over an hour - and part of that was pulling things together - so I should be able to plug away at things.... right?!?!

LOVE your colors!! I really like that floral for these. And I like the way that you did block 1. Too bad you over trimmed. :(

Great start!!!

Love the blocks so far. Pity about having to redo block 1, but you can always use the one you've done as a label

Love and hugs Gina xxx

Pretty choices for fabrics. I like the reversed block colors on block 1! I need to redo that one.... maybe today if the kids nap.

You are going to have a gorgeous quilt when all those blocks are combined. Great fabric choices.

I love your fabric choices. I need to remake number 1 as well, but it is on the "later" list. These little blocks can be very addictive, and some are much easier than others. Good luck.
