Time is flying by way too fast at the moment! While I can see the light at the end of the tunnel with my freelance work, I decided that I needed to start interspersing some sewing time with my computer time. You know… a little sewing as a reward for a little computer work. I’ve made a few alphabet blocks from the Spell it with Fabric blog hop from Moda. I’m working on my Do.Good.Stitches quilt. And I today I dug out this quilt above.
This is a quilt that my mom had started but not yet finished. I took it home with me when we were back home for her memorial service. My sister-in-law and I suspect that she was making it for my youngest brother. (Don’t worry. He doesn’t read my blog so it will still be a surprise to him.) And so I wanted to finish it for him. I only have 18 more blocks to make and then assemble them into a quilt.
The pattern is Samurai Squares. The blocks are quite easy & fun to make. They are all from 2 1/2″ strips of fabric. And I think it may be possible to make the throw size from a Jelly Roll plus some yardage for the accent color, setting triangles & borders.
It felt good to get back to the sewing machine.
How are you all doing?
