What if?

I saw an antique quilt on Instagram and fell in love with it. You can see it if you click here. Isn’t it lovely? It is a simple square in a square quilt. I wanted to make a small one, but thought there must be a simpler way than adding all those triangles to the sides of the squares. So I pulled out this die.

And made a bunch of these.

Then I got out my tub of 2 1/2 inch squares.

And I ended up with this.

And yes, it doesn’t look like the original. Yet.

Stayed tuned for part two. Have a great day!
