Way back in February, I made three paper pieced arrows for the sake of sewing something. I had know idea what I was going to use them in. The other day when I was cleaning up my sewing room, I came across them again, and put them to one side.
Last night, when I should have been asleep, but the brain was too active, I had a brainwave. I am going to attempt to make a scrappy sampler, or very ambitiously maybe a medallion type quilt. Those days when I feel the need to sew something, I can sit down at my machine and make one or two little blocks, or a simple row of flying geese or simple squares to add to the collection. Today I made this star using the July Star Block tutorial from Cluck Cluck Sew.
This will be a slow long term project, but will give me the chance to try new blocks and techniques without committing to a full sized quilt. So now I am busy perusing my quilting books, and bookmarking blocks that I have wanted to try, so when I have my next 'gotta sew something' moment, I have some projects lined up.
