Noah and Matilda

Don’t you just love the name of this quilt.

I am still having fun with these little blocks from the Noah and Matilda block of the month from Dawn at Collector With a Needle.




This month there were some really tiny pieces to deal with.  First there was this little bow knot with reverse appliqué.
  













I have this little iron called a Cool Tool which really came in handy.  At first I thought I would make it blue but changed my mind and went with green.



Then there were all these little bits in the Flower basket block.  They don’t look so small in this picture but trust me they are.  I think this is my favorite block so far.



Hope your Sunday is going well.
Nancy

Your blocks look fabulous. I had to leave a few tiny pieces off, just too small for me to enjoy doing.

Your favorite block is my favorite too. I don't know when I will get back to making the blocks as I have so many projects going. It is inspiring seeing what you have done with yours.

Hello Nancy, I am so proud with your kind comments on my blog; really makes me blush. On your request (never knew there were readers outside Holland...) I put Google-translate on it. And ofcourse I paid a visit to your blog and... nearly fell off my chair. Your work is incredibly beautiful, and I see we love the same things. Your Auntie Green is so amazing, and also the Benjamin Biggs blocks. I never want to miss any post of you again, so I put your
blog in my reading-list.
Thanks again and kind regards,
Ageeth from Holland
