another diversion


this has been fun to work on in between 
all the orange

I get bored very easy
you couldnt tell right?

I think I have about 15 of these 9 patch blocks
so many more need to be done




here are some strips I made and subcut
now to find more blue and 
cut it up

then onto some lights

TO MAKE THIS:




YEAH CHECK IT OUT AT BUTTERFLY THREADS

A CUTE WAY TO USE UP SCRAPS 
and I certainly have those

these are all made with 2 1/2 inch squares so
charms and jellyrolls work too
if you have some hanging around

I have TWO bins with blue fabric so 
figured I would tame it and use some up

this would look really nice on my bed
just sayin.........




I am still on step one as I am doing it in between 
other projects but I think
I will love it once it is done

three types of blocks to make
the colored 9 patch
the offwhite/white 9 patch
and a 9 patch with half white and half colored
using HST in the center of the rows


easy peasy and fun

are you playing in YOUR stash?
what cha making?

Can I see?
