I know, it sounds weird.
Still Stitching #9
Scrappy Four Patch.
I'm sure you all have heard of Amanda Jean at Crazy Mom Quilts, right? She has the best ideas for creating projects out of scraps and this idea is no different!
A few weeks ago I shared that I'm copying her scrappy four patch quilt called "Lost in the Crowd". This is a great leader/ender project as well as a mindless sewing project.
Here is the next group of fabrics to be made into squares!
After I go through my 1.5" squares, I'll be using strips of fabric from my stash. Thank you, Amanda Jean for such a fun project!
Slow Stitching Therapy.
I've needed a mindless sewing project such as my Scrappy Four Patch quilt. Life has been a tornado lately. As one friends gently told me, "You come from a challenging family!" And this month we have had our fair share of challenges. (Hence my disappearance from the blogging world.)
I have found slow stitching to be soothing to my heart, so my yo-yo quilt is getting some attention again! I started it in August of 2016 and made progress! After a long hiatus, it has continued to grow.
These are some of the yo-yo flowers I've made this month.
Do you like my granddaughter's tennis shoes? :)
This 4.5" stack of fabrics is waiting to join the other flowers!
