happy memories!

IMG_1958

I started these blocks last year after discovering Victoria Findlay Wolfe’s wonderful 15 Minutes of Play.  The centers are fabric scraps left over from quilts I’ve completed.  It makes me so happy to see these little pieces of my creations all in one place!

The finished blocks are 8 1/2″ squares with 6″ center circles.  I use the 6 Minute Circle technique by Dale Fleming to insert the made fabric into the black and white background fabric.  I just realized that I was inspired by “15 Minutes” of play and make “6 Minute” circles ~ kinda funny coincidence!  I’ve been working on making the circles today:

These blocks will be made into a cover for my sewing machine.  I’m linking up with WIP Wednesday @ Freshly Pieced + Needle and Thread Thursday @ My Quilt Infatuation.

    • Hi Tricia! I’m so glad you like ~ it’s so wonderful when others like my work as much as I do!

  1. such a fun idea. Nice way to use up some of those tiny scraps. How small is too small of your to keep?

    • Funny you should ask about scraps ~ I just cleaned out my stash and discarded any little tidbit under 3 inches.

  2. You’re too much Helen! When I pulled this out of my WIPs bin I realized the last time I had seen it was at your guild meeting. The sad part is ~ I can’t remember exactly when that was!

  3. This is such a wonderful idea Diane. I remember seeing some of these blocks in person and they are stunning! What a great memory piece!

Thank you for taking the time from your busy day to leave me a comment!
