Totally Uselessly Late Again

I ORT to be on time. I am the leader of this stitch a long, after all. It seems I can't get with it this year! It's the New Moon again, time for the Totally Useless Stitch A Long, and I have loads of ORTs to share. In my bowl I have bits from the tote bags I finished up last month and some empty spools from the quilt I started this month.

In the bag are tons of triangle ORT bits from starting said quilt. Lots and lots of triangles.

Wait, I started a new quilt? Yes! As an anniversary gift the end of July, (our 30th!) Dash semt me off to a quilt retreat at Prairie Quilt in Hennessey, Oklahoma. Since I didn't have any projects going I had to start something. The retreat was so much fun! I sat for three days and snowballed the corners on  2 1/2 by 5 inch blocks. Lots and lots of them!

The photo above is at my table during the retreat. You can see my stack of snowballed blocks in the corner. 

This picture is parts of the quilt in progress. The plastic box is full of the  2 inch scrap fabric squares I'm using as leaders and enders. Those little squares will eventually become a postage stamp quilt...all sewn while I'm working on other projects.

Here are the pieces that go in my current project. Pieces on the right are the base and the left side shows what they get sewn into.

Here are the pieces laid out (not sewn together yet!) how they will look when finished. Pretty!

Just this morning, Miss Molly helped me make a mini ironing table out of a TV tray table. I just need to get a teeny iron to use on it.
