That's all I've felt like doing.
Okay, so I'm talking about the postage stamp quilt.

Here's how it goes:
Cut strips.
Sew strips into sets.
Cut strip sets into more strips.
Sew cut strip sets into blocks.
Cut more strips.
Sew more strip sets...
well, you get the idea.
Easy peasy and I am liking the quiet work with this one.

Not too much thinking involved at all.
Though, I did find myself thinking about how to make another one.
Similar...but different.
I think that will have to be in the near future.

I think I have enough ready to put 5 blocks together. 

I already have 5 done.

Am thinking 4 across and 4 down for a total of 16 blocks...
which would make the quilt approximately 68 inches square.
It's nothing fancy, but I am really liking it.  Kind of a utility quilt...a picnic to keep in the car..I don't know.
I have no special plans for it.

The quilt is looking good, but I wasn't sure what I'd see when I saw your post title! LOL

Sometimes I just like to do the 'Easy Peasy' work (as you say) where I don't have to 'Strain My Brain' too much... Especially on days where I had a horrendous weekend!!!
Were entitled my friend and you more so...

Enjoy your time...

This quilt reminds me of an old one that someone (mom?) in our family had.

I love piecing squares and making simple block quilts.
It is fun and great way to use different fabrics and see how it turns out.

With the white, that will be fun to quilt.
