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.
