It's been a busy week - birthdays, appointments and lots of 'stuffus'.
I have had some "snippets" of time to play with "snippets" of fabric. I found myself smiling with every little project I worked on. I have asked myself why I'm working with "snippets" when I have fat quarter bundles, layer cakes, charm packs, jelly rolls, etc. Simple answer - it's lots of fun! LOL I couldn't stop with just one! A very good friend told me I was bordering on obsessive and needed to step away before I went over the edge. LOL
I discovered a pile of strips (Nine Dots by Carrie Nelson/Miss Rosie's) I immediately trimmed them down to 2" strips without a real plan because I figured I couldn't go wrong with 2" strips.
The on-point 4 patches are 2 inch finished blocks with 2 inch alternate blocks,the half square triangles are 1.5 inch finished blocks and the postage stamps are 1.5 inch finished.
And, then I decided to work with 'snippets' of Hideaway; cut 2" squares, set them on-point and called it done! Not sure if I'll finish it as a pillow or small table topper.
I am on a super tight budget so I can't spend money on new fabric. Yes, there are some I'd love to own. Sigh! I'm learning that I can take 'snippets of fabric', a background fabric and have lots of fun. I have little to no desire to make large quilts but I'm sure enjoying making the small ones during my 'snippets of time'.
Thank you so much for visiting me - come again soon.
