Happy Accident

As I continue to clean and dig I keep coming across old projects.  Today it was this little tin of 1-1/2″ squares with a snowball block on top.  With a square in the middle.  I think it was leftovers from an old project of Daughter’s.


But, the more I looked at it I thought, “That would make a really attractive scrappy block.”


So, I tried one.  Somehow in my mind the scale was off (seam allowances) and I turned it the wrong way.  Whoops!  I don’t like this look nearly as much.


Here is the second try.  Much more successful.


Looking at it beside the inspiration piece, you can start to see how it will look.  I think I like it!  Let’s call it Happy Accident.

      1. I would greatly appreciate a tutorial. My brains are so full these days.
        It is good to get the inspiration and instructions from you!

  1. I have a lot of scraps. And a lot of 1 1/2″ wide strips. You have given me another idea. Love it. Your too clever girl. This will be 27 on my list to do. Sigh!! Yes I keep a list of all I want to do. This will make a great quilt for the Indian tribe here in Maine. We try to do a few each year for them.

  2. Ohhhhh this is very cute. Wowie.
    With all of these bright colors this could be a very cute little quiltie
