One inch squares...I've been cutting my tiny scraps into one inch squares while watching HGTV here and there this weekend. I have been using these to prep for my Augusta Modern Quilt Guild Micro-Stamp presentation on Tuesday.
I've repeated the process several times since I came up with it for the ring pillow for my son's wedding and I have made a few production refinements. I need to redo or update my tutorial. Updated on 4/19/15
These scrappy samples are slated for two pin cushions and the heart is for a journal cover. Can't let them go to waste!
Here's my original Micro-Stamp Tutorial Link and project:

The squares finish at half an inch.
I also finished another quilt to add to the growing stack of quilts my traditional guild is making for our local VA hospital's long term patients. The goal is 70 and we are pushing 30 since the call went out about two months ago.
All the front blocks are from fabric donated by Branum's Sewing and Vacuum, The red stripes and grays are from my Kona stash, the back is a clearance piece I bought at Jeff's Sewing and Vacuum during their 30% off Mother's Day sale, the coffee bean print used in the back piecing and for the binding was scraps from the stash fabric I backed my first VA quilt with. I actually cut the binding from the fabric I trimmed while squaring the first quilt!
The quilting detail.
This was fun and fast on my Grace/Juki setup. I recently upgraded the nylon rails to stainless steel rods and I am loving the improved maneuverability. I wish I could give credit for the blogger who inspired this pattern but I forgot to pin or save the link.
Hopefully there are two Bulldog fans in the ward who will like my red and black quilts.
Thanks for visiting!
