    This may be the first thing I’ve seen you piece! I just made a batch of 2.5’ers today, so not quite as tiny as those. I used that 8 HST trick, wow, was that lovely. So much fun when the edges are right. 😍

      You are so correct!!!!! I do have longer fingernails which come in quite handy for things like these (I do have a stiletto, too! Ha!) but I did find my fingers next to that needle. I have had unfortunate/painful encounters in the past….sigh……………hugs…….

    I have a wack of leaders and enders that will finish at 2″ square when trimmed so am anxiously waiting to see what you are going to do with yours.

      You are so sweet to say that 😉 It seems it’s been ages since I’ve had occasion to piece anything (I’m so impatient!!!) and this was good for me to do! LOL! Thnx so much for stopping by……..hugs…….

      You know that piecing is not my “thing” but I do like the math part of it. It’s a good pattern and the little “topper” went together nicely. BUT the fun part is ahead…….hehehehe………….
