Modern siggy's - DONE

There are 101 of them! I have been working on my siggies for atleast a month. There were a few other projects that scooted in between.  There will be more posts about those real soon.


Anyhow, like all great project..mistakes can happen.  Remember this post I had cut all my squares for the siggy blocks?  Well it just so happens that I actually cut twice as many as I needed.
for real.
Not sure exactly how I figured that I need 400 squares...
the only thing I can figure is that I took 101 and doubled it...then while cutting a small say 2 year old came over asking 10X for chocolate milk...
I got her the chocolate milk and thought
"gee I need double the number of connectors, since there are connector corners on both sides"
double.
bleh....now I have an extra 202  squares.
So of course I HAVE to use them somewhere..not sure where.... yet.

Oh Vickie, Don't fret, I am sure that happens to everyone! In fact, it has happened to me. You will find another project to use them in no problem.

Just the other day I made twice as many flying geese for a project as I needed. It happens to us all...

Good for you for finishing so quickly... the other day I thought my 3 yr old lost a pieced runner so extra cut squares doesn't sound bad to me!

Well.....the squares are a good size for another project. They look great!

Use those extra 202 squares to make that loveable 2 year old something special.

I ended up making a few extra too ! Not quite doubling it, but I guess I couldn't count myself. Can't wait to see what we all get !

I cut out too many squares when I did the civil war siggy swap. I am going to use all the extras when I get around to putting the quilt together. They'll be great for doing the posts.

Maybe you can use them in the border of your quilt???

They look great Vickie! I'm sure your extras will come in handy when you get all of your swappers blocks and put a quilt together!
