Size Matters Blog Hop ~ Our Day!

Hi Hoppers!
It’s our day and were going to have some fun playing with size today!

I love these hops and reading all about how size matters to the different designers!

When Mary and I first got our block assignment we were thrilled … a diamond block. How can you NOT have fun with size when talking about diamonds!


Size really matters here! I guess quantity helps too. Mary and I wore all these jewels at the same time this past Quilt Market during our size matters schoolhouse.

Size matters in lots of things! Some would consider calling me a big mouth. I can’t keep a secret to save myself.


But my mouth isn’t all that big. It just gets used a lot.

Mary has always thought that she has a small head …


But it’s not all that small if you compare it to a walnut. It’s the power that lives inside not the size!

Would you take us seriously if we had big hair?


Of course you would! You wouldn’t be able to keep a straight face when talking to us, but hair size is fun to play with.

It’s fun playing with size in quilting too!

Mary made our diamond block in 2 different sizes and 3 different layouts. She also used our new “Giggles” fabrics. The Pre Cuts shipped to the shops last month and the bolts are scheduled to ship soon.

The first is a simple layout of 6″ finished blocks.


The second is a 12″ finished block.


This layout is set with a 6″ block in one of the corners and some block pieces surrounding it.

This 3rd layout option showcases the 12″ block front and center with pieces surrounding it. It sure is fun playing with size!


All 3 work … it’s just a matter of preference and size!

To print a copy of our block pattern click here.

We are giving away some prizes in different shapes and sizes too!


To enter leave a comment below telling us how many times some form of the word size appeared in this post. The winners will be chosen sometime on September 16th.

Gotta Run! I need to get out the pooper scooper and clean up the back yard before my husband gets home to mow the lawn.


He hates to get things other than grass on his shoes and the size of something out there could cause him some trouble!

Don’t forget to visit  Kate Spain today!

For more fun tomorrow visit … Kathy Schmitz   Minick & Simpson  and  Primitve Gatherings

For the complete schedule scroll down to our post on August 31st.

Hope you have a super sized fun day!

Barb and Mary
