I have come to a conclusion..........

I have come to the conclusion
that I have WAY too much fabric! LOL
these are some of the 3 1/2 inch squares that Sharon of 
gifted to me a while back
I started with the bag of 2 1/2 squares
and made a ton of these  16 patches

and played with ideas for 3 quilts

I also trimmed some into tumblers for this tabletopper

and love love love this one
of all the same color within the squares

so I decided to play in the 3 1/2 pile.
and I found a lot of low volume squares
so I just sewed up rows of 12

and now am sewing up the rows together
it is small so far

but I am thinking wouldnt it be cute
with some 12 inch pretty low volume blocks as
a border?
almost like the opposite of a quilt
you know, smaller blocks in a border
instead I will see how it looks with larger blocks
yeah, because I have TONS of time
to play right?
but I am having fun so that has to count for SOMETHING !

You are getting a lot of mileage out of those scraps from Sharon.

It's always fun to make things from scraps. And even more fun sometimes if they're someone else's scraps!!
