making pretty.

I made some pretty this weekend. 
Working on a fun project with some lovely ladies.
I had to cut 88 1.5in squares.  For ONE quilt square.
Since I cannot imagine myself doing this again anytime soon...I made good use of the pretty.

I love these photos...and the tiny squares.  So pretty and happy.

I can't imagine making an entire quilt out of these squares...

But luckily for my part I only had to make one. :)

And I do love learning new quilt patterns.  This pattern is via Little Miss Shabby.

And this is the result once they are all together.  Stunning(in my opinion).  But a notch or two above my patience level for a whole quilt.  The pattern is easy...but the construction takes a bit of time. :)

So that's what I worked on this weekend.  Now back to the hoho's. :)

Do you have a favorite quilt square pattern?  I'd love to see it...leave a link in the comments.  Please. :)
Happy day to you!

Soooo pretty! My hexagon obsessed brain just flashed to what a great quilt those little squares would make :)
If you ever feel like fussy-cutting that gorgeousness into 2.5" squares, let me know and we can make a deal :)

Fabulous quilt block, too! I've been admiring that block style since I first laid eyes on it.

Wow. Now that is some fabulousness. Yes, it is. I just love how it turned out. I don't know that I would have the patience either...but oh, the beautifulness of all those cute 1.5 inches squares. Happiness.

Oooh Crystal--that looks fab! And all of those little square photos are beautiful--makes me want to try out a fun doodle stitching block using 1.5" squares.
