More trail and errors

I have way to much time on my hands of late. Well I should be doing other things I am taking the time. I have been on Pinterest and got several ideas which has my mind on overtime. This is an idea I came up with, but it was trail and error. No pattern available, just tried what I thought would work and it did. This is a 36-patch block made of two inch squares. Then 2 more 36-patch blocks are made from 1.5 inch squares. Then the smaller patches are cut in two diagonally and they are sewn to the straight edge of the larger patch block.  

This was a trail by error because I wasn't sure how it would line up. HST's in neutral fabric will compliment the alternate block and they will be stitched side by side. Hopefully tomorrow I can stitch another block and show you the outcome.

I thought with the bright colors it could be used for toddles or a smaller version for baby quilts. It is a stash buster using up a lot of small pieces. I have been using the pieces leftover for the smaller block from the Log Cabin blocks. They were leftover pieces and they work to make small blocks.

Was another beautiful day. We are expecting rain over night and into tomorrow.
My husband mowed and pulled some weeds. I went to the store and got some food for meals for the next couple days.

I am trying to plan Father's Day meal and having trouble with what to fix. I guess wait until closer to see what the weather is going to be like. Either cookout if good weather or homemade pizza which I know they all like. I just hate heating up the house with the air on.

So hopefully I can get up and sew in the morning so I can show you what I am doing. Chris
