Who is Afraid of Salinda Rupp?

What is the craziest bit of piecing that you have ever done?

276 pieces in four 1.5″ wide strips there!

 

Mine has to be this! 276 pieces in 36 square inches when finished,  equivalent of a 6″x6″ block. I have worked on it for well over 20 hours now, including the drafting, printing, ironing, cutting, sewing, ironing, sewing, ironing, sewing – you know the drill! I am still to remove all the paper.

Do check in to see what I have been up to! I get back to removing paper from each of those 1/4″ strips you see in the picture ( the remaining  four pieces are huge 1″ squares!

Happy quilting to you!

P.S. You can see what I did with all that piecing here.

Red and White and A Mini!

Could you get more traditional than this? A red and white pineapple mini quilt in the making. Have to add the border. I wish you could actually feel it and see it in person. It is exquisite, even if I say that myself!

 The ‘top’ so far is 6″x6″; with a double border, it will finish at 7.5″ square. How on earth will one quilt it? Those white strips are just a quarter inch wide. Any suggestions?
I also started on the Nearly Insane today. Hope to share 3 blocks tomorrow! Do check in to see.

P.S. You can see how the mini looks with a border added on here.
