In order to find my sewing mojo I knew I needed some mindless chain piecing.
Late last weekend I found the bag of pre cut half square triangles for Rainbow Scrap challenge and sewed up some stars (my first pink for October before the month ended), to get me started.
Then made some four patches. For no reason I have started a new block - no idea what you call four half square triangles, but I think they look cute and it helps use up the surplus triangles.
When I ran out of pink I started on purple and yellow scraps.
I hadn't showed off the lovely booty that Lisa brought me at a destash sale...four packs of reproduction charm squares in purple, blue, black and brown. I love them!
When I went looking for patterns suited to charm squares, I unearthed my stalled projects;
a top that needed a back (blue), a mini that needed borders (pinks) and a quilt that needed binding (red).
Well, I did come straight home, but I did buy a bit extra, some hot pink yardage and this is a sea green with a fine dot. I have a vague plan for some little girl quilts after seeing this fabrics, so brought up and left the shop before I could spend anymore money!
And so after all this inspiration I have made a good start on the quilting (quilt as you go) for my photo quilt. Its working out better then expected...but only about 40% done so far, so got to get stuck into it today - deadline is looming!
Happy quilting, Sue.
