should we or shouldn't we??????
could we or couldn't we ??????
would you or wouldn't you?????
Wrong kind of dog ears--
I mean these kinds--
You know the little 'ears' that you cut off these--
so you can fold these back--
and press them like this--
So do you keep those little 'ears'?????
I have to say that for that small of ones-
I have not kept them--
but then I got this book in the mail yesterday--
love some of these designs--
thought they were full sized quilts--
only to learn that they are miniature ones--
In the reading I learned that the author keeps all scraps that are 1"x1" or larger--
any thing smaller does find it's way to the waste basket or ????
the book though is on paper piecing with these little bits--
so to make a long story short or at least shorter--
when I was cutting those 'ears' off today--
I decided to try something--
and just see if I sewed two of them together what size square I would get--
And look at these--once squared up they are 1 1/2" x 1 1/2"--
that is a nice workable size --might make a cute Christmas doll quilt or candle mat or mug rug!!!!
So I did keep the pile today and I will be sewing them up as leaders and enders when I need something new to use for that project!!
So my answer is for today anyways--
Is yes I will keep the dog ears!!!
Or bunny 'ears'--what ever you call those little bits of fabric!!!!!
Hugs, Di and miss gracie
