I just realized I missed posting here last week 😮 How the heck did that happen! I also lost my #dosomethingquitlyeveryday mojo last week…maybe they’re connected, LOL
Let’s see what I have to catch up on… Two weeks ago I caught the ‘start-itis’ bug and pulled out my solids stash & scrap bin. I purchased a die from Accuquilt a few months back and figured it was time to try it out. It cuts 2.5″ strips so I went through that bin cutting as many different colors as I could find
Then I followed the instructions for the ‘Jelly Roll Race’ quilt and started sewing…I had over 1900″ in total length!
It took two days to finish the top… woah, that’s a lot of color!! It measures 60×61 at the moment.
This is where I started to lose a little steam… I noticed my ‘scrap pillowcase’ was starting to get pretty full so I sewed up the end and now it’s ready to be donated to my local shelter.
Start-itis hit again and I pulled out more fabric and started playing. I decided to cut 5″ squares from the remaining pieces fabric from my Squared Up quilt and looked for a pattern I hadn’t made before…enter the Chandelier quilt
And this is as far as I’ve gotten…I lost my mojo after putting this up on the design wall. It just needs to be pieced into a top but I avoided my sewing room for three straight days 😦
To break the cycle, I finally forced myself to just go do SOMETHING in my sewing room. I still wasn’t up for sewing this top together, instead I pulled out my scrap bins and started cutting 5″ squares. This made sense to me because I’m on a mission to use up all my scraps and Sarah of Fabric Addict Quilts is posting ideas for using charm squares for her Hands2Help charity challenge this year… WIN/WIN! I got this lovely stack accomplished last night.
I haven’t lost any weight over the last two weeks and I’ve decided I’m changing my WW membership to Online only. I’m just not going to the meetings and paying for it certainly isn’t motivating me. I have been tracking my food with the app so I’m just going to try that for a while.
That’s all for now…have a great rest of your weekend!
