Cutting 2 1/2" squares on Tuesday nights has already paid off! I've finished my little scrappy quilt top made with part of those squares.
. It measures 46 " X 63" and the blocks are 8" square. I had just enough background fabric to make 17 "X" blocks. There are 18 alternating patchwork blocks. The border is 3" wide. I'm sure these blocks have a name but I don't know what it is. I worked on this project at the same time I was working on my Hunter's Star. I still have to cut and sew the border for the Hunter's Star. I never tire of working on quilts - such a good way to spend time. Of course I'm already planning another quilt and actually found enough fabric on hand for everything except the background and I may possibly have that....I just haven't decided what I want for the background yet. I'm really, really, really trying to use up some of my fabric and scraps. And there are always those pesky UFO's that I plan to complete someday.
