Loving slow summer days, they really are the best.
We have not plans, we are just drifting through our days.
I sorted out the basket of old florals and cut enough for 36 blocks,
but then I thought, ah may as well use them up, so kept cutting
and have enough for 52 blocks, so I'll use 48 6x8 12" blocks.
I love how they are turning out.
Even fabric that looks ugly is gaining a nice vintage vibe.
I can't wait to see it all come together.
Lots and lots of plain simple sewing first and some magic with the quick un pick.
Ah yes. Summer days are perfect for scrappy projects like this.
But then I looked in the basket and there was a bunch of short pieces left behind.
Hmm time for an auxiliary quilt.
I rummaged in the stash and found some plain grey homespun.
Nine patches will do just fine I think.
Lots more plain sewing, trimming and cutting in my future,
just what I feel like doing while the children potter about.
What projects do you have for the summer???
