so...I wonder why I started this.....

mini puff quilt....
I mean it will be seriously cute
I got these teenie tiny 2.5 square candy bars of Cosmo Cricket
Odds and Ends fabric and really didnt know what to do with them..
I bought them cause they were cute
they are no longer cute!!!
I've made 18 of these 9 patches
you do the math.....
I'M gonna do some solids in the same size as the 9 patch
I'm thinking that 2.5 sqaure are not the best for this kind of quilt...friggin PAINFUL
wish me luck.....
