I've used them for quite a few projects, including this little pillow.
When my quilt group decided to do a fall block swap at our November meeting, I knew those squares would be perfect for making some maple leaf blocks!
I learned this particular block from Carole's tutorial here at From My Carolina Home, and have used it many times.
These blocks are 6.5 inches, and for the swap I need 10.5 inch blocks, so I'm adding some sashing to each block, like this -
You can see at the top of the picture that I still have lots of those 3 inch squares to use up!
During my evening slow stitching time, I finished up a Gail Pan design that I've been working on recently. It's called "Little Blue House."
It's stitched with a variegated blue thread, and I'll add a blue border and binding like you see in the picture from the book, Patchwork Loves Embroidery.
Time to decide on another slow stitching project to work on!
