I decided to join in and cut some strips - a mix of grey and aqua prints.
Then two squares facing each other at ninety degrees to each other.
Then sewn around on all four sides.
From six 2.5" wof strips of four colours, I've ended up with a flimsy that is 50" x 30".
I need to decide whether to keep the top this size, add borders to it, or make more blocks.

Aah! That looks better!

This fitted the bill. Finishing at 6 1/2" square, it really is a small size to give big happiness. The bird house blocks (or perhaps kennels, as they look as though they are on grass rather than a branch due to my lack of thought!) are just 1 1/2" square, and didn't really make a dent in my 'miniature prints' mini stash!
Natural calico seemed a good fit for the sashing and border.
Jodie at Vintage RicRac. He's designed to be a sewing caddy - this side of the blanket is a needle book, the other side has a scissors holder. There were pins designed too, which I didn't make.
Another fun pattern, but not quite fast enough for me to suggest to my gal pals for a single evening of crafting activity!

I'm pleased that 1) she loved it and 2) I shall not have to sew slippery satin fabric again in the near future!
Most items passed on to DD2 or back into the school system, but the t-shirts which have seen sterling service for a number of years had another destiny.
The buttons were removed and put into the button tin.
A clutch of dusters / cloths to keep us clean have emerged!
Lovely and soft, and perfect for their new job!
