Piecing leftovers

 When you cut out the jewel shapes for the Lotus quilt, you have lots of leftover triangle pieces. These are the ones from the Lotus I cut out over the weekend. I saved all of them from the black and red Lotus, and started sewing them together as leaders/enders while making that quilt.
 I have continued sewing them together as I put together the blue/brown Lotus, first into pairs,  then quads and then in set of eights, just grabbing them and sewing in no particular order.  So now I have to figure out what I want to do with them. I really do love to making something out of the's sort of like getting a bonus after you finish the quilt!
I worked on the blue/brown Lotus last night for awhile and have all the pieces sewn into the large triangles, so I am ready to sew them together.

 My daughters are taking me out for my birthday tonight, so it will be fun to have some family time!
