Playing With Legos

Tonya R. saw an old fashioned quilt made from tiny strips. She just loved it and decided to reproduce it in modern fabrics. Tonya called her strips Legos. The trend caught on, and now several folks are making their own versions of Legos quilts. I decided to give it a try, too, and have a few blocks made so far (I think 10, though I had only 7 when I took the picture).

One can get almost into a trance making these things and could end up with a thousand strips! I stop myself and put them together into blocks every now and then. How large do I plan to make my Legos quilt? I don't know. We'll see how long the trance carries me away.....!

Be sure to click on Tonya's name in Paragraph one to see her Legos quilt and to follow links to several others who are making variations on the theme.

This post is short and sweet. I'm tired and going to bed. Nighty-night!

Legos really are addictive. I'm finally coming to the end and the flimsy is going to be super king size. Goodness only knows how I'm going to baste it, let alone quilt it!

I have not tried this yet. I am afraid if I do I won't get anything else done. I really like what you did.

Looking wonderful, Carol! And, bonus, these legos don't hurt your feet if you step on them :)
