A couple of weeks ago, I just started sewing yellow scraps together for the sheer fun and happiness of it all.
Winter is gray and blah here in Cornland and yellow is one of my favorite colors.
It never fails to bring a smile!
These came next.
And the next thing you know, I have two complete blocks.
All together, I made nine and here is where I am now. I finished off the edges because I do not want to make another large top. LOL I have enough of them not finished around here.
Maybe a mini quilt?
They are known as Ozark Tiles or Shoo Fly blocks, and now that I've made them, it seems I see them everywhere!
Here are some beautiful examples I've found.
Last week, Quilt Story had 64 linky entries!
Freshly Pieced had 238!
And Crazy Mom Quilts had 114!
If these linky parties don't get a person motivated, nothing will! Take some time to go look and "ooh" and "aah" at all the quiltey goodness going on in the world.
Helps with all the blah going on here in Soybean Springs!
