More Scrap Play

I've had things I've wanted/needed to get done around the house this past weekend, but I still wanted/needed a little play time in the Sweat Shop (all work and no play is not a good thing), so on Sunday I pulled out a box of Thimbleberries scrappy half square triangles and decided another little patriotic project was the perfect thing to play around with.


Originally I planned on a mini quilt with diagonal stripes, but as I started to sew the pieces together, I decided to change the pattern up a little.  Here's what I ended up with:


The finished size is 13 inches--a nice little mini to tuck here or there for a bit of punch or accent.  Even the binding is scrappy!

Back in the height of my Thimbleberries craze I always wished Lynette would design a patriotic line. I figured I would go broke if she did. Every once in a while she had a nice "possibly patriotic" fabric (stars, appropriate colors, etc.) Your small quilt came out nice.
