Little quilts are absolutely adorable and considering that, I’m confused there are so few in my home. Well, that’s going to get fixed pronto! Awhile back I wrote a blog called My Primitive Little Quilt. The project required 30 charm squares in which one 3-1/2” square was cut. That left two, 1-1/2” strips from each charm square. Yep, you guessed it, another “closet” project…

Well, long about now I’m really getting embarrassed. I keep blogging on these ‘almost finished’ projects and it’s dawning on me I need a 12-step program for this because there are so many more projects to go!

OK, so, this is the worst it gets! All uphill from here. The next quilty task I pulled out of my closet was this Hexie project.
