A little time ago Mary Elizabeth Kinch asked me to be a part of her blog book tour. I met Mary Elizabeth and Biz Storms at Gwen Marston's retreat. I have such good memories of sharing the week with them. I love their first book Small Blocks, Stunning Quilts.
Mary Elizabeth and Biz both make incredible quilts from incredible small pieces. Mary Elizabeth recently started a very nice blog.
When I browsed through their new book Small Pieces Spectacular Quilts my eye fell immediately on the Wassenaar windmill quilt. As a Dutch woman who loves windmills was directly inspired by this one.
I choose some fabrics and decided to make a block. Wow the pieces are small. Smaller than you think at the picture.
Aren't these blocks adorable? I hope to make more coming week and I will share with you my progress.
The book has many projects I like. When you visit the blogs which were a part of this tour you can see more inspirations from different quilts from this book.
