I must admit there hasn't been much sewing going on around here lately, but that doesn't mean I haven't been tinkering around with some scraps. When I am in a slump creatively I always seem to revert back to mindless scrap quilting. You know, the type of sewing that requires little or no math, and a layout that doesn't require a design wall. Just a pile of scraps and some white. That way there you don't have to worry about the wrong colors touching each other.
So now after a week of a some fabric therapy, these bright happy colors have inspired me, and lifted my spirits. I have remembered why I love to quilt and why I like to blog about it. I have remembered that I do this for me and that it is OK that I don't have a finished quilt to share with you every other week. I mean really! Who can keep up with that kind of schedule and still have time to enjoy life?
I don't really have a home for this quilt... I was thinking of gifting it to a friend of my sister that is having a baby this winter, or maybe I will list it in my Etsy Shop in order to support my growing fabric addition. I am not quite sure but hopefully by the time I am done with it I will know what to do. I do know that I picked up an awesome print for the back at my local quilt shop yesterday and this afternoon I will be busy layering this bad boy and getting it ready to be quilted. I am thinking straight line quilting on the diagonal...
One other thing that has relaxed me this week has been the ironing. You know how I love to iron so this should be no big surprise. I was very careful about the direction the seams were ironed and how they would lay. This result of this has made this quilt lay perfectly flat and the blocks lined up flawlessly. This makes me a very happy person!
