Piecing together...

The title of this post could actually lead into a number of stories but this time, it's quite literal. There are quite a few things I could/should be doing this evening, including loading the dishwasher and picking up all the toys from around the house. But instead I HAD to get back to my quilt. Quilting may not be the best pastime for me. I love sewing and patterns and a finished project as a goal. But when I am in the middle of a project I enjoy I am too tempted to set more mundane tasks aside to keep going until I have finished. Ah well, I'm having fun and I need the mental relief.

So I've sewn three full blocks and two other partial blocks. I'm eagerly awaiting the arrival of the rest of my fabric that I ordered from Etsy (the Stitch & Quilt-Along organizer suggested I look up 1930s fabric on Etsy to find some fat quarters to go with the rest of my prints and it was a success! Dangerous but I managed to limit myself to a set of four FQs that I think will work really well).

And I can't wait to get started on the embroidery!


  1. Sarah, they look great! I always just mix by size and color, if I can... I'm doing mine in sets of three, then I'll shuffle the rest later. Also, you e-mail is not attached to your blogger profile, so I cannot e-mail you back to answer. Do you want to drop me a line at so I have it handy? Thanks!

  2. I love the '30's style fabrics. Can't wait to see the rest!


Love to hear from you!
