M is for Memory Lane

M is for March and it's also for Memory Lane. This is our Art4Mail's Quilt Block of the Month theme for 2010. We are following the first letter of each month. I chose "memory lane" for my block. It's a cute but busy block. I am sorry I had to cut off the top and bottom of it, but didn't plan ahead very well, I guess, Those tiny pieces needed to be even tinier! I used small scraps to make this and then cut the finished blocks smaller. This is advice I once read from a quilter who loved to make miniature quilts. Make the block small, then square it to be smaller. I guess I didn't go far enough. It's a challenge to get a square block to fit on a 4x6" rectangle!
