I have said that since my foot surgery I haven’t really been picky about what I’m sewing. I sew on a project until I can’t anymore and then I more to something else. I laughingly say if it’s close to the sewing machine, I sew it. It’s so true. I am working on about six projects at this point. It’s good that I don’t mind that.
The main reason why this is happening is because it’s hard for me to get on the floor and access fabric or hard to get in the closet and hunt for fabric or hard to get to manipulate opening cupboard doors while I am on my scooter. It’s left me more disjointed than ever. I’ve been sewing haphazardly all summer so it’s not a huge change.
It seems whenever someone comes home I have them dig this or that out for me and then I’m back to sewing again.
The latest happening was I finally got this sewn together.
I’ve had the blocks done, just not sewn together. I was scooting by it and say it on the ice box behind my sewing machine…it was close so I started sewing it. In no time at all it was pieced together.
The original pattern calls for it to be finished at this point. I’m debating though. If I remember it’s just over 90″ x 90″ right now. I can’t decide if I should add a border or what. I really don’t need it much bigger so maybe I’ll just leave it. Any suggestions?
I also finished up a quilt that Kelli and I made. It will be featured in an upcoming issue of American Patchwork and Quilting. The quilt is fun one and believe it or not it’s not HUGE…well maybe single bed sized but for us, that’s small.
I got a note from a long time blog reader saying that we make so many Bonnie Hunter quilts and not many others….well here’s proof we do make others…this one from a magazine and one of our own designs.
I did manage to do this too….
These are the Pfeffernuse blocks. I debated about doing them leader ender style for Bonnie Hunter’s challenge but as I said at the beginning of the post, if it’s close to the machine, it’s going to get sewn. These were close to the machine.
I still think I might do the challenge…I liked Bonnie’s layout so I’ll likely go with that.
I did manage to get some sewing done for my UFO challenge too but you’ll have to stop back on Wednesday to see that.
