Finish or Fling? - Mouse About the House



These cute little designs came from another very old issue of Needlecraft magazine - at one point, it was about the only source of designs available to me, apart from the books of Jo Verso and Brenda Keyes. I'm not sure why I chose to start them, as at the time, I didn't know any small people, and they are really a design for children.

There are a set of four designs in total, and I've stitched two and a bit.

Pros:
  • Simple to stitch
  • Not a huge amount of stitching to do
  • Very cute

Cons:
  • How would I finish them?
  • On aida.
  • Don't know who to give them to.

So - Finish or Fling?



Verdict: Finish, and then I'll give away the finished blocks. Does anyone know a charity that will accept small blocks like these? I think they are only 6 inches square max, and probably smaller.

Nic, almost any quilt guild would accept the mice blocks and finish them in a charity baby quilt.
Due my apartment being small I do a lot of quilt blocks and then turn them over to a local quilt quild to make into their charity quilts, gives me the fun of making the blocks, then someone else finishing the quilt and someone who needs one getting it. BarbM
