I have been working on the quilting for the Brown Stripe Quilt…..
I finally decided to do a linear design in the stripes and a circular wreath design in the white blocks. Since the rulers that I ordered haven’t arrived yet, I started on the stripes……
After finishing 15 of the FORTY EIGHT stripe blocks, I decided that I needed a break.
Last week (while on the treadmill), I watched a woman piece crumb blocks. Now I have NEVER had any interest in making blocks out of my little bits and pieces, but she caught my interest. So, once I had grown tired of quilting, I pulled out all of pieces that were “too small to use but too big to throw away”…..
….and started piecing them into squares, using a base fabric for a guide…..
Come to find out, this is kind of fun and relaxing!!!!
Now I have made three……
…although I have no idea where they will go from here….maybe into a charity quilt.
It was certainly sweet to take the time to just do something mindless, but I can certainly see this turning into another BIG addiction!!!
