It feels like it's been forever since I've really sewn. Yesterday, I finally finished something on my "to make" list...
It's a Wonky Pinwheel block, designed and requested by Natalie of Greenleaf Goods for Love circle's September project. She's got a tutorial up, so you can totally make your own.
Does the block look big to you? It did to me. I thought we were making one, until I had done a good bit of work (my bad - not reading directions carefully) and then I realized I had a ways more to go.
Fortunately, I loved working with the colors she'd chosen - richly, deliciously "fall."
So, yeah, pieces of these blocks lived on my work table for a week. An unusual occurrence around here, for sure.
And I probably lost some "quilting brain" during my lapse because yesterday I kept sewing pieces upside down. Now, finally, there are two!
Ok, so I have THREE quilts I'd like to finish within the next week or so. (Naturally if you do a craft show, there's some catch-up sewing at the tail end.) I'm ready to start quilting the smallest of them today. There's a free motion design that I'm considering and am about to practice on a mini sandwich first. It's pretty good odds that I'll retreat to straight lines...
Just glad to be sewing again!
