Remember this pieced border? There were probably closed to 200 corners cut off from the border. I didn't throw away any of the scraps, I chain pieced those corner units into HST thinking one of these days I'm going to make something out of it.
Then the other day Chasing Cottons started a Quilt Class 101 . I was motivated by what she was doing. Voila! After 1 day of squaring up more than 40 HST into 5 x 5 cm squares, I pieced these 25 blocks into a mini quilt top.
