My Day For The Small Smaller Smallest Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to my blog today!
It's my day for the Small, Smaller, Smallest Blog Hop and I have to say...I'm so excited!
It's been one heck of a week of amazing little projects that are big on creativity.
Some of those projects were the tiniest things I've ever seen.
I don't think I know how to sew that small!


My projects come from two bigger projects...
A quilt from the Sun, Sand, and Sea Block of the Month


and a quilt from the Road Home Row Along.


I had designed blocks for them and thought they would make great pillows for my red couch.


The "Just Married" pillow was part of the Road Home Row Along.
Adding our marriage date seemed like a fun idea.
Yes, I've been married that long!


"Beach Boy Freddie" is from the Sun, Sand, and Sea BOM. 
I just love this guy!


Both pillows definitely make me smile when I walk into the room!
You can find both patterns at Just Let Me Quilt's Craftsy page HERE.


I was shopping at a quilt store and saw these mini charms.
They screamed, "PERFECTLY SMALL" so of course,
I had to buy them to use as a giveaway!

All you have to do is leave a nice and small comment to be entered.
Easy entry!
Giveaway ends at midnight March 10, 2018.

UPDATE: Vickie in MN won the giveaway!
You really must check out all these other small projects.
I love them all so far!


There's a Pinterest page for these sweet projects, too.

Love those bright and cheery pillows! We got married in Oct., 1972. :) That is a long time, yet it seems like it's gone quickly. How does that happen? It's been a great hop with wonderful projects by everyone involved.

LJ said...

Wonderful (small) pillows. It's such a great idea to use other patterns to make something else and small is the word! Thanks, Carol, for organizing this hop again. I am always inspired by the projects and all the creative people. Have a great day.

The pillows are great. Love how you personalized it. This has been a great hop, so many talented ladies and cute projects.

Kathleen said...

Hi Carol, Just want to say how much I love your quilts and projects. They are always so full of whimsy and color. I have to say my favorite BOM is Sun, Sand and Sea. And I never thought about pillows! I guess cause I'm fairly new to quilting. But they are so cute that I may give them a try.
Though my time is limited, I always look forward to the new inspirations you and the other ladies share. So Thank You!

Libby said...
