Wow, what a crazy, busy summer this has been! I was thinking my blogging days were over. And no time for quilting either. With that, I lost some of my motivation on projects I was working on this year…
…even though I was loving them …go figure!
So I dug through my drawers and bins looking for something to inspire me, and found these butterflies I started some time ago for Lori’s row-along. Hmmm…I don’t think I will finish it anytime soon…
… but I really loved those butterflies, so I just cut up the fabrics I was saving for the other rows and turned them into butterfly pieces.
And it will just be a butterfly quilt instead. Nice and relaxing and so pretty to work on.
I also pulled out a box that keeps my tiniest of scraps. They are all trimmed to just 1” wide! Seemingly way too small to do anything with but oh, just too nice to toss! I sorted and organized them into this divider and I was all of a sudden happily sewing away and having fun.
The colored squares finish at 1/2 inch so it will be interesting to see how big this quilt gets before I decide I’ve had enough….mini quilt?… topper?… do you think I could make it to a lap size quilt? …bigger?
It might take the rest of my life…
It doesn’t matter…because I think I’ve got my quilting motivation back.
and I’m glad to be back to the awesome world of blogging.
