You know how we are about our projects…. we love those quilts nice and big and our mini patterns, nice and little. Its a perfect combination in the studio. If we get tired of piecing, we move on to our little mini projects for a totally different pace and then back again. It really is a good way to go, especially if, like me, you enjoy the satisfaction of getting something little done in the midst of a larger project.
So along those lines, introducing A PEAR IN A TREE. Do you get it? As opposed to A Partridge in a Pear Tree? Yah, well, my husband didn't get it either but I entertained myself!
… perfect to make with one of those yummy little MODA CANDY packs or any of your favorite little piles of scraps. These make perfect ornaments or decorations of to fill a bowl or as gifts… the options are endless! They are just the perfect little size.
.. you can piece them scrappy, or with just two different fabrics or if you want to get a lot done in a short time, simply use one fabric for each side of the pear or even just one fabric for the entire thing. They're pretty much cute, regardless.
… these might be my favorite….. pears
