So....what would happen if I made a tiny version of the plaid star quilt I just made? I have been making 4 inch stars for years, and I have a zillion of these made, just waiting to be put into projects.
So I used 12 of them, then 1 inch strips for the scrappy sashing, and now I am working on the 1 inch by 2 inch flying geese border. Great fun, playing in the scraps!!
WARNING! BELOW IS A GROSS PICTURE!!!
I guess I am really a quilter now...I have been branded! This is my inner forearm, and you can make out where I accidentally touched the tip of the iron to my arm. It really did not hurt much, but I put ice on it stat, which really helped. It is now more sore than when I did it!! Yuck...I also have scars on my hands from when I was a kid, from ironing EVERYTHING from sheets to my dad's shirts!! Did you iron everything when you were a kid, helping your mom?? Who remembers a sprinkle bottle of water or starch??
