All play and no work?

Playing is not always all play; not if you are a quilter and get to play with colours and shapes. The Plus Plus blocks from this post is still among our favorite pastimes.

Remember I said you can use these little plastic puzzle pieces to design quilts?

You make a little plastic quilt
and try out different layouts and colour combos
and replace borders or centre when you’re pleased.
Take photos along the way and you might have a design for a new quilt, or study them and use what you learned in future projects.
Wouldn't you love to live in one of these little houses?


  1. Kjempefine plastikk brikker, her har du vært kreativ i leken :-)

  2. If I remember correctly, Stavanger has quite a few of those colorful little houses....great idea for using in your quilt design. xox Corrine

    This is a comment about your post yesterday- putting up a flag when you are at your cabin. I think in U.S., we would not do this- too much worry about dishonest people who would break in when there is no flag up.
    Having just finished the Stieg Larson trilogy, I am looking for other Scandinavian mystery writers. I just read Nemisis by Jo Nesbo. If you have any favorites, I would appreciate learning of them.

  4. The first ones look like granny squares of crochet! Fun toys!

  5. Looks like a fun way to figure out a quilt design!

    Looks like a lot of fun :)
