Working on tiny blocks!

At a quilting retreat last summer, a lady was making a quilt with the Spring Meadow line from Moda. She was throwing away all the little triangles she was trimming from her blocks! Yikes, I asked if I could have the ones in her trash can and she said yes. Then she started saving all of them for me. Anyway, last month I sewed all the little triangles, a print triangle with a white triangle. Yesterday I began pressing them and squaring the little block. It measures 1 3/4" per little square. I know.........I am crazy, but I just had to do something with these little things. Today I have been sewing 4 blocks together to make pinwheels that will be a 3" square. I will have 30 of these 3" squares. I think I will put strips around each block and then put them together. It will be the size of a doll quilt and just right for a small spring wallhanging. Will post a pic when the quilt is all together. Not saying when that will be!!!
Get right over to and sign up for her new giveaway! She is giving away an awesome tablerunner and some other goodies. Tell her I sent ya!
Back to stitching a few more squares before I turn in for the night.
