4.5 inches, 33 pieces

Oh my gosh, this little beauty took two nights of free time to complete! It’s only 4.5 inches square, but it has 33 little pieces in it! Since it was paper pieced, I now have to go and pick out the little pieces of paper.
As I was sewing this, I kept wondering, how did Jane, the maker of the original quilt, sew something this tiny ALL BY HAND? I don’t know that I could do it and have it look very precise.
The darker fabric is a Thimbleberries fabric that I used in my Bear’s Paw quilt.
