Sew Tiny Sampler Release Party

You probably have heard of and seen Kitty of Night Quilter's tiny piecing.  She did a 100 day challenge and sewed a block a day and then turned them into the cutest little sampler (the quilt and pictures of the blocks were highlighted in a QuiltCon exhibit last week).

The great news is that Kitty is releasing today a Sew Tiny Sampler pattern today that contains 16 paper pieced tiny blocks and she asked me to help spread the word.  Each block finishes at 1 ¼" square.

The sampler has a bunch of blocks to choose from, but which did I decide on?  The plus signs of course :) 

I decided to use some of the new Figo fabric I got from my QuiltCon goodie bag and the Figo booth.  The colors are wonderful.  Because the piecing was so tiny, I was able to use a mini charm square for each block.

I made two regular plus signs and two skinny plus signs and combined them into a pincushion.

You can find the pattern in Kitty's pattern shop, on sale for $10 for the first week (after that it will go up to its regular price of $15).


  1. Of course you chose the plus blocks!! The pin cushion looks perfect for your sewing room. :)

  2. Very cute! But way too tiny for me.

  3. I'm looking forward to making this pattern, but didn't realize how tiny the blocks were. Great to make them into a pincushion.

  4. Wow - I just don't even know what to say. They are so pretty, and adorable in the pin cushion - yet so tiny. I just can't imagine. Great job putting the hexie papers next to it.


Thanks so much for taking the time to leave a comment!
