itty bitty quilt blocks

by Nova on August 10, 2010

It’s  the {Urban} home goods swap time again. Yay!  Partners have been issued and we’re off!  I love this swap.  It’s so fun stalking your secret partner (not in a creepy way! lol!  just peeking at their blog and flickr favs)  and thinking up what to make for them ….

I made a start already …. inspired by these sweet magnets that appeared in so many inspiration mosaics last round, i made a mini sampler quilt to adorn my partners fridge or message board. Perhaps more decorative than practical but hey, every fridge deserves a little frivolous decoration right?

The blocks are 1 1/2 inches. I love mini things, can you tell?!

ETA :: I have had A LOT of emails about this set of magnets asking if there is a  pattern/directions/tutorial. For this particular set there is no ( & no plans to write up, sorry!) pattern/directions/tutorial. However,  I made a similar set for which there are directions. Yay!  These can be found in the book Zakka Style

Too cute. I love those tiny hexagons! Those must have required a magnifying glass to piece.

These are so incredibly cute! Can you tell me how big they are and what kind of magnets you used? I figure strong ones so they could be sewed inside. Thx, and love your creativity!
