Teeny Tiny Patchwork Block

I wanted to make a single nine-patch block.

As I cut the squares, I wondered whether it was worth getting out the sewing machine.
square of fabric slightly larger then a bobbin
There were four half square triangles, so I used 'quick piecing' methods.
two lines of orange stitches
The finished square: it will measure just about 2.5 inches when it is in situ.

(Why so small? The orange was already cut into a 1.5 inch strip, and I wanted to find out if I could use it for a very small star. It's doable - just!)
