Green/Turqoise 1" Art Squares and Buttonhole Stitch


No. 4 colour finished!! Here are the finished green/turqoise 1" Art Squares. These are also to be included in my TAST challenge for this week, as I've used buttonhole stitch around the edges of them all, and have also included a buttonhole pinwheel.

These are very cool. I like that stitching around the edges - nice touch!

How clever to include the buttonhole stitch on these and it looks beautiful.
You are a genius to be able to work on such a small area

When I first read about 1 inch charms on someone's blog, I thought "One inch? Are they crazy??" But now that I keep seeing more of them, I'm finding myself very intrigued by them....

I love yours! Can't wait to see more!

Nice, really nice. I especially like the one with the three red dots, and do I spot some herrinbone at the bottom there too?!

These are lovely. Beautiful colors.

Just lovely. What are these sewn on - as in, what is the medium of the background?

These are lucious Dianne.

Thanku all so much for your comments and for visiting my blog. Elizabet, the background on these ones are 2 layers of fused fabric. The top layer is different layers of green organza. Some of my other squares have felt or thin wadding on the back. I think some of the participants were putting a thick vilene on the back of theirs.

Thanks Dianne, I think I might make some of these for myself!
