And, I'm Back...

Won't waste time with the why's, let's just say life circumstances kept me from enjoying much sewing although I have been busy enough on other things.

It looks like it's been close to a year since I last posted...whoops!  Should be interesting to see if anybody reads this, lol!  I have fallen off reading blogs too, spend a bit of time on Instagram....

I have been trying to get up the gumption to start to sew again - and this week finally clicked.

Gay at Sentimental Stitches has just released a long-term bom quilt and those blocks just really looked like a fun use of my repro stash so here they are:
I am thinking reds and greens and yellows and pinks and browns mostly with a creamy solid background but I am just going to see where the blocks take me and try not to plan or organize this one much.  Will need to come up with a sashing stripe if I set it the same as the original and a setting triangle fabric as well.

Can I keep up?  4 a month certainly seems do-able.  I guess the original quilt lives in Chicago - may have to visit it sometime :)

I also have 4 quilts in need of binding, and the nights are starting to be just right to curl up under a quilt and sew :)
