Who is Afraid of Salinda Rupp?

What is the craziest bit of piecing that you have ever done?

276 pieces in four 1.5″ wide strips there!


Mine has to be this! 276 pieces in 36 square inches when finished,  equivalent of a 6″x6″ block. I have worked on it for well over 20 hours now, including the drafting, printing, ironing, cutting, sewing, ironing, sewing, ironing, sewing – you know the drill! I am still to remove all the paper.

Do check in to see what I have been up to! I get back to removing paper from each of those 1/4″ strips you see in the picture ( the remaining  four pieces are huge 1″ squares!

Happy quilting to you!

P.S. You can see what I did with all that piecing here.

  1. The final result is stunning, really beautiful! I wonder if a water soluble backing would be easier than picking out all of those tiny pieces? I’d be tempted to machine stitch in the ditch around the larger blocks. I have never before been tempted to tackle a mini, but now you have me intrigued. Again, it is so beautiful.

    1. Thank you, that struck me too, later. It took a whole evening to take out all the paper, including 1/4″ hsts! I have recently got some Misty fuse but have never used it so am not sure if I can print on it?
      I tell you minis are seriously addictive, by the way!
