Playtime

Just a quick entry to show you I got to play in my studio today. I tried sewing a couple of Triple Irish Chain blocks but messed up on both of them so I put that project away. Then I pulled out a stack of Ohio Star blocks from a swap I was in last summer. I decided some of the blocks would make great valances for my studio windows. I stitched 2 sets of three blocks. Next time I see our handyman I'm going ask him if he can make two wooden valance bases so I can staple the valances on it.

I was still looking for a project that didn't require a lot of brain power. I pulled out my box of leftover Moda pinks from the FQ collection I bought two years ago. I've made one lap quilt and my DIL has made one baby quilt. There was still plenty of fabric left. I trimmed the blocks and scraps into 5 inch blocks and 2.5 inch strips for binding. I was able to put together this little pink quilt with the 5 inch blocks. I still enough fabric for the backing and then I should be done with the Moda pinks.


Happy stitching! I know I'm happy now that I can stitch again.

I had missed a few of your posts, so want to congratulate you on your new home. Must be wonderful to be in and get settled. I really enjoyed your list of the things you have learned about your new condo. That having more hot water is wonderful. Wouldn't it be nice if we could take showers in a house before we bought it??! LOL!
Your new space looks wonderful. Love the green on the walls.

How fun to make this little pink quiltlet. I still have some of mine, too. They'll probably go with some browns in something. I love the way your room is looking. How exciting to get it all put together. That island is just fabulous!
