leftovers that make great meals.
Scraps make great quilts.
I started making 4 patch blocks from the undersized swapped blocks. I searched for the Addicted to Scraps column in Quiltmaker which I purchased during the visit with family in April.
Wow that was a long time ago.
Thought I'd try a couple Idaho Square Dance blocks featured in Bonnie's column. There are 28 1 1/2" squares in the finished 7" block. 32 pieces in total.
Yikes *!*! Oh well I guess just a couple . So cutting commenced ......
I remembered all the leftover delicacies from Archer's Quilt.
and ..... continued cutting 1 1/2" squares and 2" squares and 2 1/2" tumblers.
The cutting was over a couple of days as you can see from the change in the tiny tiny off cut pile.
Don't ever think husband's don't know what we're up too. Mine walked by almost at the end of this cutting session and asked "What are you up to? All so small must be Doll Quilts. "
I never cut pieces this small and he knows it. All I can say in my defense
is " Bonnie made me do it"
