A Study in Quarter Square Triangles!

I’ve been a busy little quilter :c)

Basic simple units, precut strips, companion angle ruler, a new rotary blade ((Ahhhh….why do I wait so long?!))

These will end up in something somewhere…I just wanted to sew. Reds, pinks, burgundies and neutrals.

Repetitive piecing can be such a ZEN thing, can’t it?

Tomorrow I’ve got a special post and a giveaway, so be sure to check back!

And with that, I’m back to the machine!

Yup... chain piecing/repetitive sewing is a zone that I can enjoy!

I know what you mean... I now have 70 little bow tie blocks.

Those are super cute! I could use some ZEN in my life right now. Thank you for sharing!

Kristie said...

Love those blocks! There is something about chain piecing that is very relaxing.

KWILEY said...

Yeah - I agree - sometimes "mindless" sewing is a wonderful thing - lots of production with not much thought - my scrappy quilt is nearing completion.....I'll have to start some new no-thought piecing!

Leeanne said...

Het that's a neat way to put the repetitive sewing...Zen!

You are ALWAYS a busy little quilter!

I have a scrappy little stack like these made from leftovers from some Monkey wrench blocks...need to stitch them up into something!

LOL--Do we all use our cutter blades until our wrist can't take the pressure anymore? Every time I change I ask myself that question--"Why do I wait so long?"
These blocks are wonderful--and I am full of wonder as to how you get so much done, and where these will end up!

My favorite mindless sewing is string piecing. I use Gwen Marsden's "liberated" technique, and I've been using strings as my leaders and enders lately. It's a Gwen/Bonnie combo!

I love this! I am just beginning a project that is going to require quite a number of these little dears, so I am adopting your good, positive attitude. Also, I linked this post to a post I put up today on my blog. Hope you have a chance to take a peek!

I love your leaders & Enders system. I need to do some chain piecing to create some zenlike peace too. I've been working on paperpieced vegetables. Just not as satisfying, but so cute!
