Play Time!

OK, I couldn't not try this out, especially as I had this little pile of scraps left over from piecing Bee blocks.   I do save strips and squares of fabric from projects after they are done, but not these little bits, I thought life was too short!   I guess you live and learn! 

I have to say that my 15 minutes was a little longer, as I tend to use leaders and enders and will have two projects on the go, so the piecing took just a little longer as I sent through a load of HSTs for pinwheels at the same time.  (saves thread and you get two for the price of one)
I managed this in my first session...

which I squared down to this block.

I used the off cuts to start off two more blocks....  aah, hooked, line and sinker!  Addicted!

Thanks V!  I will be trying to fit in 15 minutes of play each day.  Have you seen this post from Kim?  Now I have so many possibilities rattling around in my head!  LOL

I absolutely love it. I did some blocks yesterday, had the best time.

Trudi, your blocks are gorgeous! I started out using my scraps as leaders and enders, but got so excited about the scraps that I was sewing one piece for my other project and five for this one! So I guess my other project is now the leader and ender project!

Can't wait to see more of your blocks!

Awh! Trudi! now your on a roll! they look great!
I have visions of scrapping through ALL my scrap bins, but sadly, I doubt that will ever happen in my lifetime... ;-) but it's fun trying!
