Small Things Take Time

Have you ever noticed how small things can take a lot longer than expected?

I had lots of 16 inch pieces leftover from my turquoise Pineapple Blossom quilt, so I decided it would make the perfect scrappy binding for a scrappy quilt.  Don't get me wrong.  It looks fabulous!  But it sure took a long time to piece all those things together with bias diagonal seams, then trim them and then iron them.

While I was at it, I decided to go ahead and sew the bindings for the Falling Leaves quilt as well as my Blooming Nine Patch quilt.  That last one was a really big sucker - 10 strips all together.  

Anyway, this picture says it all.  Three tiny piles took me about 3 hours to do.  Whew!

Next step.....getting them on the quilts.
