floor triangles bits

 Underneath my sewing machine, I keep a basket of triangle cut offs and bits. While I was cleaning the floor of my sewing room, I needed to handle a bit of a mess they created. They play while I am not looking, and walk about the room at night.  Corralling them was easy, but not playing with them was impossible. Mostly they are smaller than a 2 1/2 inch hst. Some are very tiny.

I know I want to make ( someday)  a basket quilt with 2 inch hsts, and, I want to make ditch lillies (bonnie hunter) with 1 1/2 in hsts. I like the idea of sewing wonky triangles to the corner of a 2 1/2 inch square for a confetti quilt and little hourglass blocks.

I have little beauty blocks I am making every now and then.

I have had a wonderful time "cleaning" the floor underneath my sewing machine. I could even vacuum. haha


  1. There are a lot of ways to use those little triangles, happy stitching!

  2. How clever you are with those tiny triangles! The blocks are beautiful. Thanks for sharing on Wednesday Wait Loss
