I wanted an easy project to play with just to give me a little bit of sewing time.
I really like the quick strippie quilts made by Mary of Making Scrap Quilts From Stash, but the focus fabric I had was not WOF. It was only a fat quarter.
So, as they say, necessity is the mother of invention. I still decided to use Mary’s strip sizes, but made mine into a centre panel with an added border.
This is just what I needed to blow out the cobwebs. I can get this quilted and bound and I will have a gift or donation quilt ready.
I am pleased to say my Mother is now in her new home and settled in. There are still a lot of boxes to unpack and sort, but the major part of the work is out of the way.
Hubby is home and doing extremely well after full shoulder replacement surgery. He needs six weeks before being allowed to drive again, and maybe a little longer before any heavy lifting.
A lot of time waiting at the hospital gave me the chance to finish my ripple blanket.
It is knee rug size. I have learned a lot about my tension when doing this project and hopefully have improved my skills along the way.
It is lovely to be back doing some crafty projects again.
The weekend is sneaking up on us. have a good one.
