Klosjes counting

This is where I'm at with my klosjes ..... company came and I had to put them away for a few days while we did shopping and sightseeing.

In case you are wondering, the large squares are mostly from charm packs and the little klosjes were made from scraps. The pieces of fabric that you see laying on top of the large squares are my choices to make the klosjes with.

My klosjes are not very big, so they don't require a lot of fabric. My spools are 1-7/16" (4 cm) wide, the circles are 3" (7.6 cm) and the finished block size will be 4" (10.5cm). For those of you working with metric, forgive me if my measurements don't add up (I don't work with metric even though we switched to metric many, many years ago). Don't you just love this block?

I'm only going to do a wall hanging with these, but I can see myself making more of them for a bed quilt .... but not this small .... they sure are addictive and a great hand piecing project.

Have a great day!

Oh Rose Marie I'm sitting here feeling nothing but sheer delight. I'm enjoying studying your fabric choices and I adore the way you're putting these together. Dear friend, I'm so happy you've decided to bring your talent to joy of Klosjes.

I'm not sure where you picked up the bug but for me it was Janet and Valentina that turned me onto all the fun. Now I'm meeting all sorts of Dutch ladies, too! What a treat.

Thanks for taking the time to share what you're working on. I'm enjoying it ...while I'm watching The Tudors!

Your blocks are tiny. Just looking at the photo, I would have thought they were larger. Small is good.

Jennifer said...

I like your little blocks!

Janet said...

Your blocks are just beautiful, I love the way you're setting the spools very much. They are so darn cute.

I love the way you're making your Klosjes! Putting them in a circle really is a lovely touch.
I've never really adapted to the metric system either.

That's a sweet block and I love the way your quilt is turning out.
