I have been making decent progress on the girl's baby quilt. The prairie points have all been made and trimmed and the backing fabric arrived today. I will finalize the quilt top tomorrow, but yesterday and today I wanted to play a little. I have been making 5 inch squares of scraps ala "15 Minutes of Play" by Victoria Findlay Wolfe. It is great fun and you can just let your mind wander as you rummage through your scrap piles. I was kind of forced into it when Charley, the newest cat, discovered the box of scraps on the floor of my sewing room. He had all kinds of fun jumping in and out of the box, playing with the scraps, and generally making a big mess. Well, thought I, he has a point. If he can play, so can I. Here is one of the squares set into a saw-toothed star.
