I handstitched around each block in matching thread whilst watching TV the other night, and bound it in the same ivory solid that was used for the background.In order to make 4 granny square blocks, I downsized the size of the squares to 2 inches rather than the 2.5 inches in the original pattern so these blocks ended up at just over 7 inches each, with the mini quilt finishing at about 16.5 inches square.
I made a "practice" block to check out the finished size, which was the perfect size to make into a matching mug rug to send along as well. The backing fabric is the same floral as I used for the mini quilt.
I am posting this package off later today and hopefully it wont take too long to reach my partner.
