what to do on a Sunday morning........

I made this little mini quilt
yeah I dont have enough UFOs to work on, right?
that little 9 patch I made out of 1 inch squares
was calling me
I said to myself do I want a fridge magnet?
nah........what else can I do with this 
little sweetie

yeah you remember him, right? this one

I was going to make some teeny tiny magnets
and decided nah......I would have to go buy
some magnet strips etc
so decided instead to make more little 9 patches
I was originally going to make 9 of them
and put them together 3 x 3 with sashing

I "gotthe call"
you know the one..........
Dawnie...........we want you to do this............
yeah so I answered
I should have hung up! LOL
But I grabbed the tiny squares and made 5  9patches
then said NOW WHAT?

and the voice said to take my 3 1/2 inch squares and cut into 4 triangles corner to corner
so I did
then I sewed them on the 4 sides
making the 9 patch on point
(and yeah, speaking of points, I dont want to hear that they dont match up!)
these little babies are 1 1/2 inches for the 9 patch part
and I cut them to 2 3/4 once the triangles were added

but I didnt cut off too many LOL
so I guess that is a good thing
I combined them with a cheddar
and a purple
for the month of March

purple and yellow........
soscrappy would be proud.........
now to layer and handquilt this baby
I think I know what I am going to do with it........
go and see what others are doing with purple and yellow at

You really followed your inspiration and it turned out very well. Don't keep us in the dark about its final purpose.
