Play Squares


So far I have made about 55 6.5" squares. I'm trying to make at least one a day now, since I figured I need over 100 for the full size quilt I want to make with them. Still having lots of fun and discoveries with these... and loving how my bag of crumbs keep getting smaller!

Very nice blocks!!! I have been working all day on mine! 15 minutes is my goal for each one, but I'll have to have different sizes. Did you work for 15 minutes and then size it up or us a foundation piece?

Thanks gals! I have to admit that I am running low on crumbs- in fact I started cutting fabric for a new project just so I could beef up my crumb bag! Cathy, I keep a bag of crumbs on my sewing table and sew pieces together as Leaders and Enders... when I get a little chunk I spend about 15 minutes adding onto it until it looks about the right size.
