Quilt Blocks By The Inch
Hummm...I am trying to find creative ways in order to stimulate the quilting juices. I could hire a Quilting Slave Driver...but, I found in my search that it would require me to start more projects. Because, my slave driver would need a quilted loin cloth!
And then...I thought why not quilt by the inch?! Yesterday I dedicated the day to quiet time in my sewing room...in between paper work. Since my summer stars were still lying around I decided to work on them. They are labor intensive with 12, 1 1/2 inch pieces making up each block. I was able to make 5 of them which now gives me a 3 inch stack of stars!!!
I still have 35 more stars to make...some other day...
BUT, today I decided to really throw myself over the top! Since going on this fabric diet, which is now 6 days old I have been entering every "Free" Give Away in Blogland! LOL and I have been printing out "Free" patterns...what is wrong with me? I already have a million patterns, kits and fabric yardage! It is kinda like my patients who cannot eat or drink the day of surgery...omg...they'll eat or drink up until 11:59 PM and then come in talking about what they are going to have as soon as they blow this pop stand!
You ask...what might put me over the top??? The "Free" Scrappy Plate Club at Bunny Hill Designs. I have always...I mean ALWAYS wanted to make a Dresden plate quilt! Oh yeah...I am gonna be digging through my stash today, unless I win some fabric Give Away on the net!
