Scrappy Saturday - Orange

It's Scrappy Saturday over at the Rainbow Challenge.  Last week I showed some orange asterisk blocks that I made. I had so much fun with them that this week I made a few more blocks in other autumn colours. 
These asterisk blocks finished at 2" and the mini quilt measures about 10.5" square. It doesn't take a lot of scraps to make a block...try it you'll like it! I found the instructions here on the Selvage Blog and just kept making smaller blocks until I was happy with the size.  I used up a few more scraps on the cornerstones and border/backing/binding, and then we went outside for a photo shoot in the tree in my backyard...it fits in perfectly!

  14. So cute, I am definitely going to add some of those to my crumb quilt. Maybe not quite so tiny though. Love the way you have it posed, so professional looking.

  15. If you hadn't told me it was a miniature, It would have taken me much longer to clue in.
