But they were cute little patriotic cornballs, one said she was a rock with that headband on and proceeded to jump around dancing with an air guitar, then the other one started dancing too lol.... the rock star is 5, her sidekick cousin is 4!
This is about what Karin dared me to do. (insert picture of scrap jar pieces/parts on design wall that the themostat sits in the middle of, lol)
Beautiful and scrappy, they are. And then I ran across Staci's Scrap Jar quilt she was starting with Karin and left a message and she said I had to go see Karin's progress, which of course I did and left a message there too. Then Karin threw down a dare to this country girl...... And I accepted her challenge/DARE to do ONE..... I'll take that dare and do that times 9. LOL! Nine is the perfect size for 4 & 5yr old's picnic quilt!! They're big blocks (16")! BUT then due to my weird, silly habit of cutting and sewing, and cutting and sewing, and pressing some here, and trimming some there, then sewing more and NOT counting as I go, LOL.. really this is a seriously bad habit I have and it goes back for years, maybe forever.
One time I lovingly cut of all sorts of purples & lavenders, hundreds, pale to dark parts for my middle daughters desired queen size purple kaleidescope quilt............. I have made 3 queen size quilts from those pieces and still have enough left for 2-3 more. That has to be the worst case of overcutting I did and it still makes me laugh!!
