What is it??
Can you guess? I am so tickled with this silly little thing I made. My grandma does what I consider a weird thing. Unfortunately, she taught my daughter the same ridiculous habit and so I am making these for them. I saw this on the cover of the book "Quilt Block Leftovers," by Sarah Phillips. It is such a great idea! What is it already????? A glass cover. It seems my grandma is afraid of flies landing on her glass so she always covers it with a napkin. Now how many flies do you think find their way into my fastidious 91 yo grandma's house????!!!! But as I said, my DD#2 does the same thing now. (well, in her case, I can see it being a necessity! LOL) So when I saw this I knew I had to make one. The tiny half squares are leftovers from my nickel quilt. I have dutifully ironed and trimmed a million of these tiny jewels. The finished measurement of each half square is 1.25"Here is the cover looks like in use.
I think it is just so cute! I have some other leftover blocks and I plan on making a few for each of my phobic loved ones.
