Now that the focus on the Hands 2 Help challenge has passed, I got back to my May Scrap attack project…and I have a finished top!
The picture on the left is the pattern I chose for the May Scrap attack challenge and my finished top is on the right using my solid fabric scraps. I already know how I want to quilt it but it’ll have to wait it’s turn in line because I have 4 others that need to go first!
I pulled my challenge for June and once again, it’s a FREE pattern! This should go pretty quickly because the pieces are larger.
I still have so many solid scraps/fat quarters I’m going to use solids again for this one; in fact I already have all the pieces cut and the HST marked for sewing!! I altered the size of the blocks just a little because I didn’t have enough background fabric, instead of 10″ blocks mine are 8″. It will still make a nice size throw and I can always add borders to make it bigger 😉
I’ve been keeping up with the C25K program and I’m really happy about that. I usually listen to upbeat music when I run but I’ve switched it up for the last few weeks by listening to podcasts. And to my surprise, the workout feels like it goes by faster and it doesn’t feel as taxing! I know, I know, it’s all in my head but I’m really loving it right now!
The podcast that I’ve liked the most is called Half Size Me by Heather Robertson and it’s all about sustainable weight loss. Heather lost 150 lbs and has kept it off for 6 years – she’s not a doctor and she’s not selling any products; I really enjoy her style and her message.
I’m headed back to my sewing room – have a happy day!!! 😀
