A few triangles.......

About a month ago I dug into my big box of Christmas fabrics and cut out 16 pillowcases for a project my cousin was working on.  That is about 17 yards out of the box.  Next I sorted out all of the scraps and pieces not full width and bagged them separately.  Yesterday I took them out and pressed them and cut 3" finished triangles with my studio die cutter.  I started sewing them last night while I watched TV.  I am tempted to make more of the streak of lightning zig zag blocks with them but I may play with them a little first.  I might end up making star blocks because I could add center squares and corner squares and make a bigger project.  This is fun for me, no plan, just playing and eventually there will be a finished project.

I always like what you come up with. I shared your blog with our local quilt store owner-she sent me an e-mail thanking me for the inspiration. Thought I should pass the thank-you on to where it belongs. have a blessed week!
