Two and a half inch squares.

 Remember my Scarlett O'Hara moment this week? (fiddle-de-dee) Well, I had a bit of a think about these offending blocks (they are too small to make the cut for my do. Good Stitches group) and decided that they are not offensive at all, I just need more of them.

the offending granny blocks
So, in the spirit of more, last night saw me cutting out a whole heap more two and a half inch squares so that I can turn these cheerful blocks into a quilt.

lots of squares
There are not quite enough little squares yet, but I ran out of night! (Pretty much night is finished at midnight and morning starts to happen at 12:01am - or so my son tells me.) Don't you love the spray glue and basting pins in the background of this shot? Like I'm just about to baste a quilt top or five. (Any minute now!) Of course, a new project is just what I need right about now. It's not like I have quilt tops backing up waiting to be finished or anything. Well, I am having fun, and that's what counts!

Have I created a monster? They're looking fab, BTW.

Those are fabulous blocks and with spring on its way to you, it must make you very happy to sew with those lovely bright colors.
