These squares are 5inches...4.5 when finished and they will be going into a Dear Jane quilt. It's something I have always wanted to do but just couldn't find the motivation, especially considering the fact that a lot of them will be paper pieced and I am not a fan of paper piecing.
Today, I bit the bullet and started. I would have started the first of the paper pieced squares(they are all numbered and in order...a bit retentive that way) but Tigger decided I had done enough sewing for today and started barking at me and nipping at my heels...Shelties do love to herd.
If you ever decide that you would like to do a Dear Jane quilt..you can find a host of 4.5 squares at www.sentimentalstitches.com under midget squares. There are 92 of them available for downloading...won't make a very big quilt but you can always add as many more as you want. It will probably take a few years before it will be anywhere near the size I would like it to be so don't hold your breath waiting to see the finished product. I'll post a few as I do them, in between all the other projects I have on the go.There are just not enough hours in the day.
