An Addiction


Only got 3 flowers done this week. But that was because I got sort of side tracked. I was searching for a UFO that I started several years ago. I didn't find it, but I did find an 'I Spy' quilt that I started many years ago. It was a hexagon and triangle pattern. I had lots of hexagons cut out. They were supposed to be sewn together by hand. Since I have been doing grandma's flowers using the English paper piecing method, I decided I would never finish the I Spy quilt by hand. So I turned it into hexagons without the triangles. Here's what I have done so far.

I was also doing a bit of mindless sewing. Wanda from Exuberant Color gave me the idea. She makes little squares with her left over fabric. I decided to follow her lead. These little squares measure 2 1/2inches and will finish at 2inches. They're kind of addictive. I should really be quilting a couple of charity quilts I promised to make at our last guild meeting.

Just can't stop making these. But I really should work on my other projects. Yes, that's it. I am going to put these little squares away for awhile and work on my UFOs..... or, maybe not.

I bought a small storage box and I just put the little 2 1/2 inch squares in it. When it gets too full to close the lid I'll figure out the project. Yours look great!

Hi Hetty. I just came over to see if you did a clamshell report this month and discovered your flower garden. Such beautiful flowers!

Love the fabric colors Hetty. I often get sidetracked. If some new fabric or yarn happens to show up in the mail I drop what I am doing like a hot potato!
