Sneak Peek...





Good Evening! Here's a little progress
report on my latest "little" project. This block is called Dove in the Window. It's one I've always liked and I thought I'd try it as a miniature, so here's where I am at this point. All 16 little "doves" are made.. the finished size will be 1.5".













Next step is to add the sashing strips (.5" finished width)  and join the "doves" in pairs.







Then the pairs are joined into blocks with sashing and a centre square. Cute, eh? The block is 3.5", finished size. I'm trying to decide whether to introduce one more color/fabric for the sashing that joins the blocks. Decisions, decisions....

Stay tuned....

Peace,
Linda

I can't believe each little square is 1.5". So tiny. It's going to be beautiful! Are you enjoying this nice weather? :)

Now I know, you truly do have patience!!!

Oh my friend, you have the patience of a saint! There is no way I can work with anything that small. I tend to have issues working with the tiny blocks...crazy, huh?

Hope you are doing well and things have thawed in your neck of the woods.

It seems like red would completely take over but...I'd like to see it auditioned! :)
