Small Stuff


Two Flimsies
About 40 x 58
Made from scraps made into string blocks during the Rainbow Scrap Challenge last year and this year. 
I need to piece some batting and find some backings and I'll have a couple of donation quilts. 

(I wish I would have mixed it up a little more on  the one with the polka dot border but...
it was not meant to be). 


I normally like to make BIG quilts. 
But I don't have a/c at home. So, I sweat and I work on small stuff in the summer. 


So, I'm not sure if that means I sweat the small stuff or that I sweat ON the small stuff. 

(Mind you...I'm not complaining about the lack of a/c. I love where I live out here in rural Iowa.  And my wind chimes do tell me once in a while there is a nice breeze).

What beautiful, fun quilts! I see all kinds of things to find in your strips. I love the spider in the corner of the green square. :)

Great quilts, thanks for the inspiration! I just sorted my scrap bins and picked out all the strings, so I could use them up. I love the way the colours look together.

Well, they might be small stuff, but they're massively cheerful small stuff!
There you go again, turning smiles into quilts...
