I decided to do short posts, so I’ll start with the projects laying about my sewing room.
Here is a small quilt/ table topper than is for friends who recently finished their new log home. Hence the log cabin blocks.
I decided to do scrappy meandering flying geese for the borders, and you know me - no pattern! A bit of a challenge, but I’m pleased with the result! I’m starting with rectangles, so there are small hst left over. They have become my current leader/ender project.
I guess I’m on a log cabin binge! I’ve wanted to make a scrappy log cabin quilt, so for the past year or so, I’ve diligently cut my scraps into 1 1/2” strips. It became the stitching project for “Myrtle” - my 1911 Singer Treadle Machine. To date I’ve pieced 72 blocks and I’ve included more than 200 different fabrics! Sewing on Myrtle has truly become therapy for me!
Several years ago I purchased vintage quilt blocks from various places and have purposed to stitch them into small quilts. I had hoped to have these two blue ones quilted and displayed for my January decor, but alas, where does the time go!! All I lack on one is stitching down the binding and the other is ready to be basted and quilted.
One other project is just in the planning stage. I leave the fabric out on the table where I can “think about it” while I’m working on other projects! Surely someone else does that too!!
So I’ll leave you for now:
