LIttle pieces of this and that
Well, I have 63 of these blocks cut out. I started piecing them...and stopped, as is often what I do. They are alternate blocks for an unimagined quilt. So it is hard to stay with them, until I know what quilt they will be in!
A dear friend sent me some scraps, asking if she should just throw them away, or send them to me. SEND THEM TO ME! I replied! Above are a few of them, pieces that she had cut some blocks from, about 3 inches wide...hmmmmm what to do with them??
Dream...and then cut! See my ancient kitchen counters??
The slivers that are left...
A tiny mug rug, quite modern for me, out of the littlest 1 inch strings.
And tada!! Baskets!! See the pieces in the second picture...they have been cut into the body of baskets. 3.25 inch unfinished...can't help the strange measurements...that is what they were, LOL! So I have 6 more cut out, and will sew them up soon. Thank you to Mary at Quilt Hollow!! See her blog HERE.
