Scrap Quilts Again

I’m starting to sound like a broken record here, but I’ve been sewing up my friend Denise’s waste triangles again!




She gave me these a couple years back which is when I started work on them. I then abandoned them for awhile in the back of a drawer. Why? I don’t know why. The blocks were so close to being done. It’s just what I do. I need to let them age like a fine wine.

I’m auditioning the lime green fabric for the background. I like the lime green, but don’t love the print, however, I’m trying to stick with what I have in my stash rather than buying something new (if you could see my enormous stash, you’d understand why). I think it will work fine.

Next up from the piles of Denise leftovers, these cuties.

I love it! It's like revisiting Denise's quilt again only in a smaller version of something else! Love the pop of green! can't wait to see it finished!

These are SO adorable! Did you finish the quilt? Did you use the green or find something else you liked better? Inquiring minds want to know!!

I save my waste triangles too, but haven't had any ideas for using them. What size are these trimmed down to? I absolutely love this! CDahlgren at live dot com

I like the squares you are making. What size are the bigger squares and the size of the smaller squares. Thank you
