Valentine Fun

Hey!
I needed to make a little something
to fill a void in an area in our livingroom.
On our sister sewing weekend,
Sarah gave me this cute little charm pack.
I think she was bribing me,
but that's another story.
:o)

So I thought I would make a cute Valentine table topper with it.
I sewed the squares together and added a border
 of Kona white.

Then I took this little ruler

placed it on the seams as such

and cut all of it into squares like this

Then...like a big puzzle
(I LOVE puzzles!)
I put all the pieces back together
to make this:

Added an outer border and it's now ready to be quilted.

All this in an afternoon.
A great, cute project!
But I find it funny that I sewed a bunch
of squares together, only to cut them
up and sew them together again.
Does that fall under the definition of insanity?
Hhhhmmmm.....
Things to ponder.
:o)


xoxo

It's only insanity to anybody who doesn't do patchwork

this is really really pretty. And you make it look easy ( i'm sure its not!).

I'm interested to know if there was a lot of wastage with this project?
