I needed some easy, "not thinky" sewing the other day so I started another scrappy quilt. I pulled out tons of already prepared 2.5" squares and got to work. Once again, I followed Katy's tutorial.
After just a few hours of sewing I had a messy pile of block A strips,
and these much better organized strips for blocks B. I was about to press all those seams so I could piece the blocks together when my iron decided it was time to stop working :(
Thankfully I had other projects I could work on while waiting for my new iron to be delivered.
I managed to do quite a lot of hand sewing on my Marcelle Medallion. I'm outlining all the borders and shapes, just a few more geese to go and I can move on to the border #5.
And, I decided to give cross stitch a try. I'm working on Woodland Sampler, loving the look of all those teeny tiny stitches, just not sure if cross stitch is really for me. I definitely need to give it more time.
Thankfully my new iron arrived this afternoon and I got to piece all those scrappy blocks. Actually, I have tons of strips left over since I was planning on making a large 70" x 70" quilt, but I changed my mind and made a baby sized quilt top instead.
How about you? What have you been up to lately?
