It was supposed to be a studio=clean day.
But who makes these rules anyway?
I will admit to clearing a few inches of horizontal surface ---
And I did give everything a good vacuuming –
Isn't it amazing how things look better with just a bit of vacuuming and emptying the trash bins?
Okay, that’s enough!
I want to sew!
As you can see, Emmy Lou doesn’t approve of me spending too much time at the computer either, and I tended to agree with her today ---TODAY I could claim for myself.
And I played a bit because there is a project that didn’t have direction and sometimes you just need to allow yourself the freedom to cut up the fabric, lay it out, see what it looks like and then decide.
So I did this:
APQ Quilt Along units…with purple?
Nahhhh…not thrilled with it. Purple is too dark!
What else is there? I really wanted a solid because the other units are so printy-busy and I love combining solids with prints in a scrappy quilt.
Oh, look! I have a HUGE hunk of nearly-vintage aqua that has been sitting in the stash for at LEAST 10 years…will it do?
Oh, I Likey!!
I had to make some more and find out….
And I felt like treadling! So I did!
6 on the wall. Yeppers! Still Liking it!
I have no idea how I will set the blocks together. At this point there is no pattern. This is my interpretation using my own variation of the units found in the APQ Quilt-Along. To learn more, CLICK HERE. It’s not too late to join in!
And no, that wasn’t the only sewing I did today ---
“Can you stitch this button back onto my trousers?”
I think it took longer to thread the machine than to get this job done..but I’m milking it for all it’s worth!
Cleaning the studio?? I’ll do some more of that tomorrow, but tonight is brought to you by the color AQUA! You know where to find me…..
