I have no idea what got into me last night! This weekend I was going through some stash bins and found these orphans. They were not sewn together but were all cut and pinned as a group. I had found a pattern that used these kind of blocks to make a purse so I sewed them together and will *try* to see if I can figure out how to make the purse.
This is the second one and the pattern. I hope it will turn out well! Do these blocks look familiar? I made 2 quilts with the dragonfly stack and whacks, one for each DD. One was with the turquoise and the other with a pinkish-purple sparkly as the setting. Remember??
As you know, I have been diligently cutting blue 6" blocks for DD2's quilt. So when I found the orphan blocks I realized that in order to make those into something usable I would need to make more, so I cut up several of those 6" blocks into these. Now I will need to cut more 6" squares, where will it all end?? LOL
Which I will add to this to make a little table top quilt.
As I laid awake last night, tossing and turning, I had a brilliant idea for what to do with this quilt. Unfortunately, I can't share it here as the person I will finish this for reads the blog. I will be doing some creative border work and hopefully what I have in my brain will translate onto the fabric and look like I want it to! Always dicey, I know but well worth the try. I hope I can pull it off. I am very excited to do the designing and then to get it to my friend. I may post peeks as I go along we'll have to see. I really do want it to be a total surprise so...
