As I have gone through the dozens (hundreds, if you must know) of quilts that have been published over the years in magazines, books, calendars - I realized that it would be so much fun to share many of them as themes. And what did I discover? That I have an entire category of quilts based on this fabulous, beautiful, 60 degree angle.
It's Saturday (where I live, the Eastern USA) and there's nothing quite like SCRAPS to make me feel cozy. These little CD bags were made in 2004/5 with some leftover grandmother's flower garden blocks from a quilt in my first book. I thought it would be nice to capture just one in a little bag just the right size for a CD. I made two and finally found the original photo that appeared in Patchwork and Quilting Magazine. And I included a lesson on English Paper Piecing. I share that with you, too, at the end of this post.

|I found the bags hanging on the back of my sewing room door last night! Wow; I didn't have to tear the house apart to find them.|
|One bag; note the bird novelty print. (There are chickens in the green bag!)|
