What about you?

I totally cut out my strips for the granny along, what about you?


I cut 1 1/2 inch strips of all my pkm, and I'm using my FAVORITE yellow dot on white for the background. My piecing isn't always that great, so I've decided to use setting triangles for the blocks which will keep the edges on the straight of grain. I'm old school like that.


My block is 4 3/4inches unfinished and it's so dang cute I can't stand it. I am planning on making these till I'm bored which could be one more or a thousand and any amount in between right?

Last week someone asked about the clothes pin. WAY way back when I first started blogging I saw these bird pins on some blog. LOOKED ALL OVER, and unbelievably Elizabeth found some on her vacation way back when in Ireland maybe. Paid a fortune and she split her bag of them with me. Fast forward to some random trip to Daiso and we find BAGS OF THEM for $1.50. Isn't that the way things go?

Your block is so adorable. Reminds me of springtime. I made 2 quilted handbags this weekend with my PKM fabric. I just know that I need a whole lot more of the polka dot fabrics! Wow I love this fabric:)

Those strips of PKM look magical all by themselves. But your tiny little block is darling. I didn't realize they were so small!

*love* this block size! Oh my.... can't resist... I'm going to have to do this, too.... soooo cute.... I want to figure out how to do the setting triangles old school like you do so I don't have to mess with the bias. I would love to know how you did that! Your block is sooooo cute! (so is your fabric!) Thanks for all the fun eye candy you post!
