The last couple nights I just wanted to play with some fabric. So I pulled out these peices of black and white partial fat quarters, and an almost whole fat quarter of the red fabric with dogs. First I used Elizabeth's tutorial from Sew Mama Sew using interfacing to make perfect tiny square patchwork. Then I just played around with it until it was the size I liked.

The quilting on this is done on machine to form "pebbles." I started doing just a basic stippling but I didn't like it and tore it out. I figured why not try the pebbles. I love it! It was much more natural for me to make the circles and they vary from about 1/2 inch to 2 1/2 inches wide.
