I should stop saying never.

Really, I said I’d never quilt. In the last year, I made three quilts. THREE!!! Ok, granted, I never really “quilted” them, I mean, that’s a lot of work. And patience. And who has the time unless you are 50+ and maybe have a lot of cats? That’s an unfair statement but once my blanket is put together, I really am done with it. I like short projects that can be finished and used and not sit and me say things like “wow, only 11/12 left to quilt. Glad I decided to do this by hand.” (that’s a true conversation. I ended up ripping out my hand stitches and went with little yarn ties.)

I was going thru my stash last night and thought I’d do a simple tag blanket for our church bazaar. Instead, I found quite a bit left of my Moda fabric from the Oz collection. After I cut it up, I thought “hey, I can try my hand at triangles! who cares, right?” So off I went, measuring, cutting, drawing diagonal lines and sewing a quarter inch on each side…and I came up with…

It’s just started. That’s 36 squares and I have 36 more (I think) and thenĀ I’ll attempt to sew it together. I don’t know what I’m going to do with it yet. It’s cute but I don’t know if it’ll go to the bazaar or a friend or where. Oz, maybe :) We’ll see how it goes. I still need to find a border for it and backing. Again, just not sure.
