Sometimes you just gotta take a break from the things that HAVE to be done to do something JUST FOR FUN.
[Seems like I'm doing that all the time... Maybe I have a problem with anything called W-O-R-K? Hmmm. Something to ponder.]
Anyways, I've been on the computer non-stop the last little while; emailing, editing, formatting. So, I needed a little break.
This one wasn't even on my radar, but I'm just about finished with it. Just a couple of borders and I should be able to check another one off my list.
Now, don't worry, I didn't whip up all these blocks in one day. I actually got the blocks from my local quilt guild last year through a block exchange I was involved in. They've been sitting in a box until last Saturday, where I decided I needed something mindless to do. I spent a few hours on Saturday trimming them all down to 5" squares.
And, little by little, I've been sewing the rows together. A couple rows in the morning, a row or two in the afternoon and maybe a row at night. Last night I finished this much.
It's been a while since I put something "on point" but I am really glad I chose to on this one. It was super easy. I just added on one more 5" beige square to the end of each diagonal row and trimmed them all down at the end, leaving a 1/4" seam allowance beyond each point.
Scrappy...old-fashioned...using up fabric (the beige stuff) from my stash... finishing up old projects... It's what a girl needs sometimes.
What about you? Finishing up any old WIPs today?
