Do you ever feel like you are always a month behind? I so naively thought that as my kids grew up that life would slow down and I could get caught-up on projects. Um….apparently not. I feel like life is busier than ever right now. And with us being in the “middle ground” of a huge move (that we get to do all over in a couple of weeks) I am feeling a bit like a chicken with my head cut off. And I fear that I am only at the beginnings of teenage “busyness.” (All you teenage moms are laughing at me right now…..because I am sure I don’t have a clue.)
Anyway, onto much more fun topics—-fantastic fabrics and quilting. That always makes me happy. I meant this to be a Valentine quilt…..but it just went to the quilter a week or so ago. Maybe I can be ahead for next Valentine’s Day?
The quilt is made from the Scrumptious line of fabrics with white Kona cotton for sashings. I will show more of it when it is done, but I am planning on binding it with the aqua bias stripe from that same line. I did simple half-square triangles with each 5″ inch squares and I think the quilt ended up around 70 inches by 70 inches. I did a tutorial awhile back (don’t judge the photography please) on how I make my half-square triangles here, and if you are thinking about making a first quilt the HST quilt is a great place to start.
And then in the middle of our displacement, I cut out another quilt top. Yes, I need help. But honestly, I feel more relaxed when I sew…..so for right now I am calling it my therapy.
What projects are you working on right now?
