Hello there, it is me again. I finally found a little time to get some crafting done over the past week. It was more like I finally made time for crafting than found extra time… you know? I wont bore you with my it has been so busy at work lately whining, instead I will just show you three months (yes I just admitted to being multiple months behind) of quilt blocks for the Pieced Together Quilting Bee.
First up is the Cathedral Window block for
Sandy. This one was a bit tricky. I was really careful but things still seemed
to come out a bit wonky. I really hope it matches up with the others and I
didn’t hold up Sandy’s process too much by being dreadfully late.
Second are Michelle's half-square triangle blocks. I love half-square triangles – my month of the bee was a simple block of half-square triangles made out of menswear shirts. The combination of pink and orange was so lovely, so cheery. I would never have put those colors together on my own and I am so glad Michelle introduced me to the combination – I have a feeling it will start popping up in my stash.
Last are Katie, our fair quilting bee organizer’s vintage sheet blocks inspired by Oh Frannson’s Mod Quilt Sampler Quilt Along. I really loved the fabrics – that blue, lilac and green combination in the sheet was divine. I had a lot of fun putting these together – great fabrics and simple blocks patterns.
It really did feel good to be back sewing. I always forget how much I love it while on a break only to find it a wonderful way to spend an evening or an afternoon totally immersed in the sewing and happily unconcerned with the stressors of life. Yep, need to remember to MAKE more time for sewing or really any form of creativity when times are hectic.
