Denise and Her Tiny Pieces

Last Sunday I popped by Claudia's house to visit as she is recuperating from knee-replacement surgery. It was a well-planned visit, because Denise was also stopping in. In addition to catching up with each other and wishing Claudia a speedy recovery (which she appears to be experiencing), we had a brief show-and-tell. You have seen my quilts, so let me show you Denise's.

Back in December, the last time we checked in with Denise and Claudia, I shared a picture of one of these blocks as this quilt was a WIP (work in progress). Check back to see the tiny sizes. Look at the stunning result! I love it. Here are some close up shots. The last one includes my pointer finger to illustrate the tiny size of those churn dash units. Incredible, truly!

The other quilt Denise shared was this double wedding ring quilt in lovely shades of green and purple. Denise has definitely honed her piecing skills with these curved pieces.

I applaud Denise for her patience, hard work and thriftiness in fabric use and waste reduction. While I love these quilts and all their tiny pieces, I am on a completely different trajectory for the foreseeable future.

Maybe someday, I will feel inclined to piece some intricate designs, but for this year I want to use up some of my stash. In order to do that, I must make simple quilts with large pieces.

Have a great Saturday, everyone! The weather is at last warming up after this awful deep freeze, and I am off to walk with my 'seester!'

Happy Quilting, Friends!
