Tiny Squares

We've had lots going on in the shop recently with new fabrics arriving, putting together our brand new Design Team and keeping up to date with our accounts (boo!). 

My sewing machine has been sobbing its been used so little lately so when I had a (rare) evening off recently, I decided to start a project I could pick up every now and again when I have a few minutes!  So I dived into my fabric stash.  Now, my shop is super organised by colour and is full of carefully folded FQs, my own stash Im ashamed to say, looks a little bit like this.....

Box 1 of 4...Oh the shame!!
Im really new to patchwork and made a small quilt for my daughters doll a few months back.  I loved deciding on the fabrics and putting together the pieces.  So I decided my next project would be a quilt and set about cutting up lots of 2.5" squares to make a simple 9 block patterned quilt.  Its a fab way of using up any tiny scraps you have.

Lots of tiny squares, will hopefully make....

These are the blocks I've assembled so far.  I think they look good!  I've no idea how big the actual quilt will be but Im loving putting together the blocks.

....lots of big squares!

If any of my followers have any quilting/patchwork tips, they would be very much appreciated!

Dont forget theres still time to email about being part of our Design Team!  More info can be found here.
