Sew, Sew, Sew :)

Sometimes I am in the mood to putter and not to really do a huge project. So I went ahead and did a few (not so) leaders and enders for my Cheddary Challenge quilt. Then I laid them out in a different arrangement and smiled!
Then I whipped up some of my leftover charm squares that seemed Valentin
e-ish (some of them are actually from a Christmas packet) so that I could play with my Lil' Twister ruler again.
So today after having brunch with DJ and her grandfather I cut it out and carefully pinned it up and viola it turned out!

So since today I got this great new book in the mail I had to play along with the yahoo group I recently joined that makes small quilts. They picked this quilt out for January and so I started at my leftover parts box and picked out some hst's that I could use for the first few cross blocks. Tomorrow I will try to do some more. I think I am on a small quilt kick. So much fun to make!
I didn't strictly follow the colors since I was using leftover hst's but I will be adding more black to the next blocks so it should balance out okay.
Now to watch a movie or two and knit on my second sock :)

Sounds like you had a lovely day. Lots of puttering adds up in the end

I would love it if you could teach me about those Lil' Twister quilts, I really like them!
