I took a break from serious quilting to get some gifts sewn. All I found when I opened my bulging box of Christmas fabric was scraps. Hmm... I put the box away, not having enough of any single fabric to make my intended project work. When I got up in the morning, I couldn't get to the sewing room fast enough to sew the block I saw in my head. I am having a great time, sewing this oh sew simple block. I had only intended to make placemats and runners, but yesterday afternoon I pieced enough blocks for a lap quilt. They're a bit addictive and such a terrific use of my leftovers.
I spread the blocks on the floor to check the layout and for the first time ever, Maddie expressed an interest in quilting. He may look aloof and sophisticated wearing that black tuxedo and white shirt, but trust me...he can rumble!
