My January project comes from a scrap bag from a friend that was full of 1.25" squares.
I posted last week about this muddy mess of a mini scrap quilt, and for some unknown reason that blog post has disappeared into the ether. Blogging (and life in general) is weird that way... now you see it, and now it's gone!

Here is the same blocks with sashing... so much better!

This is a photo of the quilt top from the back so you can see how I pressed all the little seams. It is very precise sewing and sometimes challenging with pieces that finish 3/4", but I enjoy it!
This photo shows the scale of the blocks as I was quilting the diagonal lines with the walking foot. The finished block size is 2.25" and there are 271 pieces in the quilt.
Here is my January miniature quilt measuring 16" square.
Because most (all?) of the scrap pieces (except the sashing) are William Morris fabrics, I am calling this "William Chains".
I like the strong diagonal neutral chains in this design.
