Play Time

I was putting away scraps and I got distracted. I decided to try out a little idea that’s been floating in my head.

I used this die set.

It’s for making bow tie blocks. But I wondered about making a little quilt with just blocks like this.

I was having so much fun that I failed to take pics along the way. But it wasn’t long until I was ready for some hand sewing binding.

I machine quilted a simple grid with my Pfaff.

That was a fun little experiment. It finished at 9 by 12 inches.

It will make a good mug rug for my morning coffee.

Have a great day!
