squares

After making LOTS of little 6" crazy squares
I kind of wanted to know where I was going with this little
15 minute (HA!) project.
I've finally decided to alternate with these
square in a square blocks.
The center of these will all be the same fabric
They were given to me by a 90 year old friend of mine.
Every so often she slips me a little envelope
full of 4" squares already cut up. Sweet.....
....and the outside triangle pieces are coming from
the vintage linen stash that grew and grew due to a swap.
Be forewarned! Swaps are dangerous!!

So cute. I like the idea of the center squares all being the same.

Love the way that's looking. And how special that your friend has gifted you with pieces to use.
