Sometimes I see fun stuff online and I really want to join in even though I really have plenty to sew at my machine! So I was thinking about the Quiltmaker Bitty Blocks and decided I could make one of each and then have a mini wallhanging at the end of the year--instead of making a bunch of them like they suggest. I also then had the brilliant idea that I would do them in the rainbow scrap challenge color of the month just for more fun. Here is the Pinky Linky! So I started today and decided I should do two of each--one for me and one for a future quilt camp auction quilt or gift.
I was super happy to use up some hst's that I had leftover from previous projects so it went quicker to make these blocks.
The other thing I realized was that these blocks aren't meant to be the same size--they are mostly between 3 and 4 inches...when I came up with my plan I thought they were all the same size (because I didn't read that far!) so not sure if my plan will work...but I am still going to do two sets of one each and we will see what happens. I guess I have grown as a quilter, doing something without an actual pattern!
I also tried out another new recipe today from my new SkinnyGirl cookbook. This one is light chicken marsala. It was delicious! I will be making this one again as I think all three of us really liked it.
