Self Isolation feels so weird

So weird but necessary…I still feel like we’re stuck in a Sci-fi movie. I’ve done a pretty good job of staying away from all the negative news and I’m feeling a little better but I haven’t gotten as much done as I thought I would.

Early last week I started piecing the monochromatic Plus top. I decided to break it up into 9-patch sections so they’d be easier to sew together, this is where I stopped that night.

It was 2 days later when I finally finished the top

Then a few days later I pulled out my batting scraps and made some ‘franken-batting’ for this quilt. I don’t usually do this many scraps but once I got started I just kept adding. I sure hope all those seams won’t be noticeable in the finished quilt :-/

Once I had that finished I glue basted it all together – and this is where it still sits. I can’t decide how I want to quilt it…I’ve looked at charm quilts online for inspiration but nothing is speaking to me ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

I got my shipment of sew-on velcro and finished the Safelight case set I started 2 weeks ago, now I’ll start making a few more sets.

I had such high hopes of spending all my ‘isolation’ time in my sewing room and that’s just not happening.

No weight loss this week but I’m staying steady so I’ll take that as a win!

Have a great rest of your weekend ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. I’m really loving the monochromatic plus quilt and GREAT tip about sewing in nine patches–you’re right about being stuck in a Sci-Fi movie. My kids and I love disaster movies and as soon as the lock downs began it reminded us of the Netflix movie Containment! Thankfully real life isn’t as bad! Enjoy your week ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Ha, I’m a big sissy when it comes to scary/thriller movies so I won’t be checking it out, LOL! I searched online again this morning and found a few quilting ideas I like so I might just get the monochrome plus quilt done today!! ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

  2. I’ll be interested to see how you quilt the + quilt. I do like the monochrome! And I value the hint about doing it in 9-parch segments! I imagine I’d end up with at least one block to rip out, but it sounds workable.

  3. You are so correct about the Sci-Fi movie but at least there are not zombies. I love to go to the movies and I so miss going to the movies. You are being so productive – you are a role model! And I’ve learned to stay away from too much news – I let myself check news once a day and anything local I need to know (like when our shelter in place order became effective etc). Thank goodness we have hobbies!
