Another project started!

Yes, I caved again!
I started Lori's Pink Lemonade Quilt Along!
But in my own defense, it is a small quilt (won't take much time), and I had ALL of these baby half square triangles (HST's) sitting around doing nothing! They were leftover from the blocks I made from my Saturday Sampler blocks.
I trimmed the HST's to 1 1/4" so my churn dash blocks will be 2 1/4" finished, which is exactly half of the size of Lori's. I made a few extra blocks to use up all the HST's, so I might make my quilt layout a bit bigger (as in using more blocks...the quilt will definitely not be BIG!).
Step #2 is already posted, so I better check my scrap bag and see what I can come up with for the half blocks. 
Good thing I started something new...I almost had to work on a UFO there for a minute! Phew!

LOL....you make me laugh Kathy!
What would we quilters do if we actually had a quilting LAW to follow: "Quilters shall not begin a new project until the final binding stitch has been sewn on a current project."

BAH! :0)

Love the blocks!
