a month of minis

We had unusual visitors in February, four friendly turkeys took to sleeping in the trees in our neighbors yard, but in the morning, they stretch their legs, hop and skip to places they are not supposed to be in. I made a Turkey tracks block to remember these guests.

This is my first block using a feedsack print, I am hesitantly dipping into more of these feedsacks I got from friends. 

Amanda created a lovely tutorial for this Hashtag block. I changed the name to peek-a-boo as a little yellow chick and her fluffy friends were bent on playing hide and seek.

A fly is bothering this deer so early in the morning.. eek! what a pest! 

Friendship block in browns and blues is a free pattern @ sentimentalstitches.net in Midget blocks section.

Mouse family is tired of cold, they are sailing to a far away tropical place where sunshine and cheese crackers can be found in plenty year around.. lucky lucky mice!

I keep making transportation blocks in one form or other, with a faint hope to escape this cold myself!

Mr. Pig is out picking flowers in the pine tree forest. 

Old maid is puzzled why her chores are never ending.. she is miffed that a pile of broken dishes is also waiting to be cleaned up so late in the day!!

Bear is looking jolly, he has great plans to go on a hike and gather pot full of honey.

Rabbit wants to know if having two carrots with cake and ice cream on the side can be counted as balanced diet?

Most of the blocks are from Susan Briscoe's '130 mini quilt blocks'. I am also using '500 quilt blocks' book by Lynne Goldsworthy and Kerry green, adjusting measurements to make them into small size. I adore this book and starting to refer to it often. It is a must have on any quilt lover's book shelf.

Wish you a Happy new month! ( ' u ' )

Your little animals have more fun playing than any I know! They're so lucky to be living in your darling blocks, Pratima! Turkey's in February? Poor fellows must be have had their nests buried in all the snow you have!
