A box of chocolate?

....That's what I'm going to name this one.  Of course I'm open to suggestions if you've an idea for a name.   Do you remember all those little extra pieces?
 There was no room for squaring up these little pieces(to much out of my comfort zone) at least not in my mind.  Sure Jo Morton could have but I'm not the queen of Mini.  They came together kinda wonky so blur your eyes and look past the imperfections.  When I realized that they were going to be cattywompus(that's a podunk word for wonky) the reading glasses came off and the assembly line sewing began!  The seam allowance on these is 3 ticks less than a quarter inch, a scant quarter inch is 1 tick.  It was the only way to keep from clipping off my points.
A few hours later and TADA!  My first mini doll quilt!(19 1/2 x 26 1/2)  Now I need a doll.  I'll be raiding my moms doll collection on Thanksgiving.  She only has about 300 to 500(seriously) they're everywhere, every room, she can't seem to stop buying them.  I can relate...FABRIC!  Once its quilted I'll show you how its displayed with my antique baby cloths, it's gonna be too cute!

Until next time "Quilt out of your Comfort Zone!"
