A fun little quilt!

Tonight was our quild meeting and I usually submit a Block of the Month.  This month it was a red and white Lattice Block.  Well after I finished mine I had 8 little red and 8 little white triangles that were cut off the corner pieces.  I went to toss them and thought I should give them to my friend Barbara. 
Then I thought I should make something with them.
So I sewed the 8 reds to the 8 white to get 8 little half square triangles.  Then I sewed them together to get 8 smaller quarter square triangles (1.5"s).  Added some little squares from the rest of the scraps and ended up with first red and white quilt.  11.5" x 6.5". 
I always wanted a red and white quilt and now I have one! 
And the Ohio Star is my favorite quilt block! 
Like all the things I do, it's not perfect but it I do like it.  It took me about 45 minutes.
 Now I need to finish it.

I have those tiny little triangles left over all the time and just throw them away. I always think I should be making something with them! Your Ohio Star small quilt is wonderful. I have been blogging about a you I don't care if anyone reads it but it sure is fun to record what I have done. I had to start limiting myself to reading other blogs to about a half an hour a day because you can spend hours enjoying others projects.
