Playing Around

This week, while, I was doing some experimenting with some shapes in quilting.  It occurred to me that I was playing and wasting time.  Instead of feeling guilty, I wanted to know what other people say about playing so I searched 'playing quotation' and came upon this quotation.


Somehow this quotation made me feel better about playing around with some fabric.   I got some triangle shapes left over from other projects so I decided to play with Half Rectangle Triangle (HRT).  I don't have any design in mind right now but this is what I made.


Block size 12" x 18"


This is my first time making HRT blocks.  We'll see where this leads to.  It's all in a day of working, playing, researching.  :-))


Thanks for stopping by.

Have a great time creating.


  1. Interesting. I've been doing a little playing too with leftover triangles, not HRTs, but I'm sure it is OK for creative people to play otherwise we'd just be copying everyone else all the time. Look forward to seeing what you end up with. Take care & hugs.

  2. I play all the time...even when I have an end goal in mind. It's "play" that leads to fun and exciting new things. And, failures, too, but that's what we learn from! Have fun!
