Work in progress: 6 inch crazy blocks

6inscrappy

 

Some of these squares have been with me over two years. Originally the blocks were all uneven sizes, sewn between projects just to get my gears going. A couple months ago I cut them down to 6″ squares, thinking that a uniform dimension might be enough to make them all cooperate. No dice. I’ve been arranging and re-arranging them with much frustration ever since. I made mini-quilts (aka potholders) out of several of them. Finally, somehow, yesterday they fell into place with the help of a few bright solids. I’m still working on a border, but I’m very pleased with how they came together.

Also, I found some gigantic wool sailor pants at the thrift store that should be perfect for bordering the bow ties quilt from my last post. Huzzah.
