Monday Making


Today I will play with the 16-patches made from the light and limey greens pulled from the 1.5" barrel.  I didn't have enough of the red chicken wire fabric, but found a close red in my homespuns.  So half the blocks will be set wire and half in plaid.

I like to make geese blocks with the flip-and-clip method so I have the bonus triangles.  Since these are small, I'm setting them as hour-glass blocks and they might just go into the border for this OR maybe a pillow top to go with the quilt.


I'll use the Shoe Fly blocks as leader/enders while working on those stars.  I have 70 blocks so far and not sure how many I will set the limit to yet.  They are cute!!  AND they are using up some of the smallest scraps.  Because someone will ask, I'm using a 2.5" center and 1.5" HST with 1.5" x 2.5" braces - making them 4.5" unfinished.

Linking up with Beth
