This project started as a class with George Siciliano (http://www.georgesiciliano.com). George specializes in miniature quilts based on the twirling log cabin block but the block is only the beginning. He has some really good techniques and tools for foundation piecing and a wonderful eye for color.
I set the class piece on point and added borders to bring it up to a nice size for a wall hanging.

Don't let the tiny pieces scare you away from this project, I never handled anything smaller than 1/2 inch square. George's technique has you sewing on a "reasonable" sized swatch then trimming it as you go to the final size. ;-)
