Last night on the way home from work I caught a second wind and was inspired by the nice weather to lock myself in my basement and sew. I know that seems counter-intuitive, but I did open the basement door and let the fresh air in. Actually the nice weather inspired my creativity and that motivated me to get sewing and finish my Pieced Together Quilting Bee April blocks. And from what I know about myself, I need to strike while the motivation is high or I will continue to procrastinate.
The first block I worked on was for Erin of Two More Seconds. She asked for "Rectangles and Squares" and those are two things I love, so this block was a breeze. I also loved her sunny color scheme and paid homage by keeping the colors together. It really makes me think of Summer.
The second block I worked on was for Stephanie of Creative Reveries. She asked for a scrappy log cabin. I sorta complied. It started out that way and then I it kinda veered away. I used up almost every little scrap of fabric and some of the pieces I used were really little. Hope Stephanie doesn't mind.
I need to learn to plan a bit more before I start sewing blocks so that I use the available fabric better. I hope that will come with practice. It really makes me wonder if I sent out enough fabric for May. If you are a fellow PTQB-er, please let me know if you need additional fabric and I will happily send it your way!
