As I told you, I haven’t been feeling the best. I’ve been putzing around the house but not really accomplishing a lot. One of my favorite things to do is play on EQ (Electric Quilt) but I typically don’t allow much time to do that. I decided to indulge.
I had seen a picture of a vintage quilt on Instagram that I liked. It looked like a good quilt that would use up a lot of my strips. Here is a picture of the quilt. Oh, be still my heart. It’s a scrappy girl!!
I played around on EQ. I came up with this…I modified the chain blocks to make two different kinds.
When I last left you with my quilting, I was working my way out of a sewing funk. I think it happens to all of us. For me, family, holidays, and my health stuff had taken me away from the sewing room…but happily not to far.

I was in the sewing room feeling a little downhearted. It’s been so long since I was able to really sew. I feel like my sewing room is standing still in time and I’m moving on. I don’t love that feeling. I feel disconnected and out of touch with my projects.
I thought about just walking out and settling in with some cross-stitch. It would be so easy to do. But I love quilting too. I just needed to dig and start in on something.
To be honest, the out-of-touch feeling makes me want to start something new…but NO. I can’t do that. I’ve been on a roll of getting things done before I had my break from quilting. I needed to do something even if I didn’t have the enthusiasm for it. If I did something, maybe the enthusiasm would come back…so, I settled on working at the longarm and my Bitcoin quilt.
