I always love starting a new quilt. There's a sense of wondering how it will end up that I love! I've pulled fabrics and just gotten started.
All I can bring myself to want to make with them is wonky log cabins. I have a problem. I'm stuck on the wonky log cabin block. I can't seem to be able to find a block I want to sew more than that! I don't know what to do about it really... I'm in a rut, yet not bored with it. Does that make sense??
And for the improv peicers out there... I have gotten into a routine of first picking all my fabrics, but then as I make the blocks, I cut as I go along. Meaning that I cut, sew and press each center or pair of borders as I go. This means that I tend to sew standing up because I can't be bothered to keep getting up and down as I cut, then sew, then walk to my ironing board to press. Am I nuts? Does anyone else sew standing up? I need to figure out a way to get my sewing machine up higher.
Look at these pretty ladies that I got in a swap with Kristen.
I'm gonna love this quilt.
Oh and just a quick reminder for LA locals, the first night of my class for Home Ec. at wonderful Reform School is a week from tonight so please sign up if you're interested!
