As I work on my Critter Community / Log Cabin On Point Quilt.....I have accumulated quite a stack of corners!  The extra parts of the block once I have trimmed....
So to be resourceful and not wasteful...I took a couple of corners....

Stitched them together on the long edge....squared it up....and SHAZAM!  A new block...using my cast-offs!

I am just imagining the possibilities....framing these blocks with a solid kona....or sashing them all in white....a mass of colorful blocks swimming in a sea of white!  How pretty and fresh!

Yesterday I need a little retail therapy so I hopped on over to my favorite little shoppe....and bagged my kill  made my purchase!!!

YAY!  A bunch of Happy Mochi Yum Yum!!!  This bright bunch of fun is perfect for my next project.....thank you Monica for designing such a great fabric line!!!

Then I set my sights on some Flower Sugar.....again perfect for my next project!
This fabric is just so sweet!

Happy Friday!!!
