While taking a break from sewing, I did a visit to blogland and saw this post. The sight of this quilt immediately made me think of a large pile of 3" rails that I wanted to use up. I made these when I did a Bonnie Hunter mystery- I believe it was her first one Carolina Crossroads. At the time, I was contemplating making 3! I was so silly. I also thought about the large container of half squares I have sorted by color, cut and ready for use. I have to admit, when I was sorting the container by color I had to wonder if I was actually insane. I grabbed the rails (several hundred of them) and the box of half squares (several thousand) and went to town. The 2" finished half squares are the perfect size for the corners. I still have another 25 blocks to make, but it will be a nice size baby quilt and I will have another open container. My blocks will finish at about 4", I have no idea the size of the blocks in the actual pattern. I am pleased that I have managed to use these old blocks and create something new.
Check back with Judy to see what others are working on this week.
