Monday Making


I have been trying to use up these strips for a long time and I would really like this tote empty by the end of the year.


The start of a new miniature.  1.5" light squares with 1" x 1.5" color sashing and 1" corner stones.  This is 10.5" square and now to add a border and get it quilted.  This would be a very cool large quilt, but I am not that nuts!  Mini pieces make for fun mini quilts.


There are more lights in this tote that are just bits.  So I am going to make some of the small floating stars that Barbara showed for a swap.  I've made them before and I know they work up quickly.  I'm hoping to eat up these lights as well as some of my color bits from the barrel system.

It's dropped into the 40's for the day and into the 30's at night - a huge jump, but wonderful for staying indoors with the crock pot making dinner while stitching the day away.

Sewingly Yours,
Sharon

  3. Well, that turned out so cute. Those are the sizes I’ve been working with on my cardinal, and so I know just what you’re talking about when you say you’re not that nuts. Apparently, I am just that nuts.

  11. Your mini is adorable. Before reading the description I had assumed the squares were 2.5" or even 5", which is about the only way I would make a larger sized quilt in that design. Can't wait to see your stars - they look like fun little scrap-user-uppers!
