Tangram is a fun game. I wonder if anyone has ever made quilt blocks using the puzzle pieces as a guide?
There are tangram chickens, birds, cats, people, etc. I bet I could come up with some fun quilt blocks.
Wow! I put quilt tangram in the google image search and there are thousands of images.
I was using these pieces to give me a fun way to play with devising simple geometric quilt block patterns. I think I will cut out more light and dark pieces. That would help with making up layouts.
Yes, I know there are computer programs to do this and there is always graph paper, but moving pieces of paper around is a lot more fun.
I could cut up fabric pieces, but I thought that would be a waste because I might never sew the pieces into a block. But then again, it would be a great way to use up fabric scraps.
The Thanksgiving decorations are all packed away which means tomorrow is the day I get out all the Christmas stuff and get it all put in place. I don't have any of the Christmasy feeling yet... maybe when I get outside cutting pine branches and making decorations I will get the spirit?
No eggs today, but the chickens are looking so pretty and fluffy in their new feather outfits! I'll try and get some photos of them tomorrow. I forgot my camera this morning.
