We had a great day stitching last Saturday at the Courthouse, the only problem was I let Ada talk me into bringing the tub of 6 inch squares home with me. Now remember we have already made at least 3 quilts from this tub maybe 4 or even 5, but the tub will still barely close. We made the other quilts using the disappearing nine patch so I thought I wanted to do something different this time. I got to looking through some books and saw this block in a Nickle Quilts book. It called for one 5 1/2 inch color square and four 3 inch white squares. Since a lot of those 6 inch squares weren't exactly square this would work. Plus a lot of those squares are pretty ugly so this cuts them down to a smaller size. I tried to choose some that read as solids and with a nice contrast to the white. We will have to find some pattern that cuts them even smaller for those real ugly ones.
These are waiting on the second white square to finish the goose.
