Puttering


While trying to put things away today I wanted to put 1.5 inch squares into the same drawer as the 1.5 inch strips. Makes sense, right? But I couldn't get the drawer closed again. When a drawer doesn't close, it is officially time to use some up to make it fit. So after the kids were settled all snug in their beds I started sewing 1.5 inch strips together randomly. They ended up as these little 36 patches that will finish up at 6 inches square. I only meant to sew for a little while, but there was an Iowa game on TV. Football games sure do last a long time.

YOur blocks look great. I have been using 1.5" squares as leaders and enders for some time now and I have a gallon size ziplock bag of 16 patches sewn and pressed.
