You know how one thing leads to another?????

well...I seem to have a very bad case of that this week.This was my Sunday sewing effort. A bag full of plaid sample pieces that got joined up to be a ???? doll quilt? or maybe a new pillow for my bed?? Haven't decided as yet. Obviously I DIDN'T recut them, just joined them as they were...fun!
But the plaids bit me....and before I knew it, I had pulled out my stash of plaids and was cutting for Bonnie's Stretched Stars..*VBS* Yup...finally! I've wanted to for a long time.
And since I was having ALL that fabric fun, why not pull out fabrics for new pair of pillowcases for my bed. The larger pieces of dark red are the already cut cases, and the other fabrics are some of my possible choices for the insert and the accent piece. I should be cleaning house and doing laundry, but I think I'll sew *VBS*

I really like the fact that you just sewed the plaids together without recutting them. Makes them look so old and folksy. Very nice.
