My Saturday sewing hours were limited, so I was determined to make the most of the time available. I don't have any deadlines for projects right now, so I was kind of at a loss as to what to sew. Has that ever happened to you--one day you have a "mile-long" list, and then when you have a minute, you can't make a decision?!!!
I finally decided on sewing some tumblers that I cut from some project left-overs a few weeks ago. I'm not sure if this will become a pillow top or a little casserole mat for the kitchen, but it was one of those little projects that was fast and fun! I'll do straight line quilting and use red gingham for the binding.
Next I decided to sew block 10 from the Fat Quarter Shop's 2011 Designer Mystery Block of the Month (only two blocks to go...can't believe it). This month's block was designed by Gudrun Erla and is absolutely gorgeous. There were quite a few pieces to this block, but you can "chain sew" most of them, so it really didn't take that long.
After sewing I decided to work on organizing some of my scraps, and first set out to cut some 2 1/2'' squares from my Sew Cherry left-overs.
Then, while cutting out a baby quilt for a friend I found a collection of 2 1/2'' Vintage Modern squares I had cut back in December. This was like finding a buried treasure...now...what to make with these?
All in all, it was a fun little Saturday sewing afternoon...I have come to realize that just a short time being creative along with a little sewing can certainly make the whole day!
