My friend Claire came over this morning to sew and we both seem to get so much done when we are together! She's so creative. Today she spent the morning trying to assemble a donation quilt out of scraps she got. Me? I need a pattern.
here's my Marvelous Monday Mini... I can whip up a 4" block with a pattern...no problem!! VBG
I am actually repurposing some of the strips from the Primitive Gatherings SBOW. I can't quite figure out their system so I'm using my own stash...Isn't it fine to use whatever fabrics we want notwithstanding that they send a kit?? VBG
here is the block I made for this week, just still needing the half square triangles, which I've sewn but need to assemble. I also need to sew down the wool.
I also made the latest Triangle Gatherings block... up to date! Claire brought over a pack of fabrics she got at Craftsy that looked perfect for this project so I went ahead and did a little online shopping and ordered a little more for these blocks. I'm enjoying them.
When Claire was over last week she worked on the binding for a donation quilt that she had made. This is another example of her making something out of her own head! I think it's so great that someone can make a quilt without a pattern. I am not one of those people. It's not better --just different!
Nothing fancy but awesome. Impressive, don't you think??
