Kelli was home and we were busy sewing on Saturday. We intended to a lot of things but ended up doing something entirely different. She was busy sewing along on her Virginia Bound blocks.
Kelli likes working with small pieces of fabric and making small blocks. Her’s are only 6.5″ instead. I can’t wait to see what it looks like finished.
I was busy working on my pineapple blocks.
Then Kelli said, “I was thinking about making Blue Skies…I think it’s my favorite quilt in Bonnie’s new book.” I said I wanted to make that one too. The next things I knew, we were digging through my fabric and shuffling things around.
Then Kelli had the table filled with boxes and she was cutting strings.
The box on the left is for “Blue Skies”…the other block is just regular string pieces. I have no idea when I’ll get to working on “Blue Skies” but I have a box of fabric all cut in to strings and ready to start sewing with thanks to Kelli Kramer’s AMAZING cutting skills (she made me write that part!)
Through the process, Kelli and I both decided we really don’t care what type of fabric we sew with. We’re just both so thankful that we can sew!!
