Answering my call for photos of Quiltmaker Bitty Blocks projects was Maridee.

Isn’t her quilt awesomely scrappy and intricate? Maridee omitted the December “Pinwheels” but made 9 to 12 of the other 11 Bitty Blocks. After enjoying it for awhile, she plans to give it to a veteran.

Pat shares pictures of the library book tote she made for her granddaughter.

She writes, “The basic bag pattern has a gusseted bottom.  No particular directions were used – I just sized it as I wanted it to be.  All of the fabric was from the MODA PB&J line. What I did to make it mine was to embroider Perle Cotton around the letters as a “stand alone” panel, then, sewed it on the front of the bag.  And I added the inside pocket, which has Velcro to keep the library card from falling out.  The name was counted cross stitched on Aida cloth, then sewn on the blue fabric.”

Thanks, Maridee and Pat for sharing your wonderful projects with us!

Both projects are wonderful! They are inspirational. I have done a few of several of those bitty blocks but didn’t know what to do with them. What a cute idea Maridee had.

These are lovely! I haven’t made any of the bitty blocks, but I went to investigate after your last post about them. I hope to include them as an upcoming quilting project. 🙂
