Retro rectangles



Well, even when away from home, I can't keep from doing stuff - especially when I am visiting a quilty friend who understands my needs :)

Today I went through a couple of Cathi's stash boxes and pulled out some bits I liked the look of - and just started cutting sort of randomly. These are little pieces - the rectangles are about 3.5x4.5 now. Not sure what I am going to do with them next, some sort of sashing perhaps? The aim eventually will be a small quilt, possibly with faces, possibly not. Anyway, that will be a decision for tomorrow or another day. And what will I do with it? Well, that's not really important, is it...

Cool!
I do like those Kate. Nice colours too.
As to what to do with them, sometimes it's nice to just stitch for the sake of it! LOL!

I like them...and what is Cathi stitching while you are going through her stash bins? I hope you are enjoying your vacation.

It's the journey that matters, not the destination - although I could see a very attractive destination for those striking blocks! lol

Oooh...love those blocks, I've seen something similar on another blog recently. If you want to see the mini quilt she made using these kinds of blocks the address is:
