Sunday Stuff

These blocks are for a tiny quilt that will be donated to my quilting guild for a silent auction.  I used the "A Little Tangy" pattern from Scrap-Basket Surprises, reducing the block to 2 1/2" finished.  Using the strings I've been playing with, I cut 1 1/2" strips to make these little cuties.  They're making me so happy, I just had to share a picture!


Have a wonderful Sunday!

So smart -- taking those cute little blocks & making them smaller & cuter still. I'm sure it'll be a great success at the silent auction.
