On Sunday I took 9 "sawdust blocks" that I put together in April and I turned them into a mini for the Modern Mini Challenge. In fact, the mini is actually a pillow cover, measuring about 18" by 18". So what are sawdust blocks? They are in fact, little 3.5" foundation pieced blocks using up a bunch of little tiny scraps that I cannot bear to toss out. My husband calls these little scraps sawdust so these are sawdust blocks. Why ash? Because they blocks are offset by Kona Ash. I like it! I quilted the mini with a grey variegated Aurifil 50 wt, straight lines, lots of straight lines.
