CRAZY!!

Thought I'd share a pic of one of my 'scrap' projects.

Found a box of scraps I started playing with over a year ago and decided to FINISH this UFO- by the end of the summer! (sometimes setting a goal actually helps in accomplishing something)
Of course I am strip piecing this- but still!

Wanna make a 'CRAZY' postage stamp quilt like this? It started with leftover Jelly Roll strips that I cut in half lengthwise. That makes them 1 1/4" wide. Now I know there's a whole group of quilters out there that do those 'Oh My Gosh' quilts with teeny-tiny pieces. But I'm not one of them. This is about as small as I get- hence the reason I'm calling it 'CRAZY'.

That is really small! It will take you some time to finish but it is very cute.
