This is my bitty block for the BBC red and aqua/applique blocks! There are 7 of us who signed up to make these, and this is the one I came up with!
I’ve decided that it is really hard to get perfection on these… I could have back based appliqued them, but that was a little too time consuming.  (Plus this is done using needle turn, traditional Hawaiian quilting.) Ah well… 3.5 inch block!
Thanks for visiting!

      We did a Hawaiian swap several years ago in the MQTS swap… I decided to try it in mini form and did the traditional method shrunk waaaaay down! LOL! Thanks Soma!
