Took an idea from Primitive Gatherings and ran with it. Lisa posted a quilt on her blog made from honey buns, which is small strips of 1 1/2" fabric all from the same line. I didn't have any of those, so I took a jelly roll, and cut it in half. Trying to get a good picture was hard because it was windy.
It turned out pretty cute. I had visions of doing a thin sashing and then a piano border. But I'm done. I am leaving it as is.

Test #4

Ok....I think I've got it


Blogger...blogpress?? New iPad has blogpress, old has blogger... Are they the same? New iPad won't upload pictures but old one does... I'm so confused. Looks Ike all the settings are the same on each...uggg
So I'm checking to see if it works without a picture

Sorry about that.... It's been quite busy here...with just a lot of things, then down time to recover.
 Had grand baby duty for like 9 days, then at work/school, all the kids returned. So just lots of things going on. Really not much sewing, trying to stay caught up on all the sew alongs. I am though...starting a new paper piecing project and I am just SOOO excited. An Edita Sitar one. 
Is anyone doing Lisa Bongean's? I did block #3 yesterday and that stupid thing took me over 2hrs to do! That stupid thing!
It's the one on the left. Looks pretty simple, right? That block is only 61/2". So we're talking some 1" blocks. Yuck! It will have to do because I am not redoing it again.  Lost track of how many times I did the center block over and over. I am NOT a fan of piecing little pieces, I wish I was because they are just adorable.
