Why not use up itty bitty 1/2 square triangle cut offs? Am I totally nuts? While working on my Three’s Company BOM quilt there were a ton of 1/2 square triangle cut offs from the blocks. It seemed such a waste to throw them away so I started tucking them in a baggie and when all the blocks were finished I had accumulated 114 of the little nasties. So what do you do with all of them? Well you sew them across, square them up to 1.25 inch and design a mini quilt. Ya really, I have way too much time on my hands. I added a couple of small borders, quilted it up and voilà its a cute little table mat measuring about 18X20. The finished squares ended up at 3/4 of an inch. Tiny, and so is my common sense as I could have finished a whole king size quilt in the time it took me to do this little guy.
