I decided to give it a try, with a few changes to the original block. Instead of the line down the side of the house matching the background fabric, I made it a darker color of the house, and I took out the main window and added a door.
Here are my fabrics. They are just from my stash, I don’t know the lines or designers.
I knew the pieces were going to be tiny so I decided to try a fabric stabilizer I had on hand and see if that would make sewing easier.
I mixed it up with some water according to the directions, laid the fabrics on a towel, and sprayed away.
It was fun to play with the pieces in the morning. They felt like thin pieces of paper. See? No flopping!
I did find it much easier to cut and sew these tiny, tiny pieces with the stabilizer applied. There was less movement when cutting and sewing and no fraying.
Here’s Momma house and Baby house. Baby house was so cute, I made it a little crocheted frame.
And so you can see how tiny the finished block is, here it is next to a tic tac box. Finished size of the mini block is 3.75 inches by 3.75 inches.
I can’t wait for the mini diamond block to come out!
