So it was HOT and HUMID this weekend in Upstate NY.   I didn't want to do anything on Sunday except stay close to the air conditioner.     Since there was nothing nagging at my mind to work on, I decided to start something new!  

I went to the Paducah Quilt Show in April for the first time.  One of my purchases was from the THANGLES booth.   It's a Block of the Month Sampler in ITTY BITTY pieces.    So I pulled out a collection of fat eighths that I had been saving for a special project.   Best Press on all the pieces (I've heard this is REALLY helpful when doing miniatures) and started cutting!   

Blueberry Stars Thangles Pattern
Woah!   Tiny!
So Stinkin Cute!
1/2" THANGLES!   (Not kidding)
WOAH - these babies are small!
Slow and steady wins the race
I couldn't imagine playing with these without BEST PRESS
Best Press makes them really easy to handle
cute cute CUTE!
More 1/2" THANGLES
Super fun!
I left off on Month 4 - April.    This was the perfect project to play with when stuck inside!

  1. Oh, WOW, those are tiny! Beautiful job!

  2. So cool! I love miniatures. I have a pattern waiting in a drawer for my attention. So glad you shared the tip about starching the fabric first! (Wish I could use Best Press - it's really nice - but I'm totally allergic to something in it.)

  3. Super tiny and super cute! Look at precise your points are! I didn't realize the Thangles came in such a small size - I've seen the bigger ones. Happy sewing! And thanks for sharing this on Main Crush Monday. :)
