I'm feeling a bit more like sewing and am able to tolerate having my ankle hanging down for longer periods of time. So, today I started working on my UFO list. My real boost to get some sewing done came from my 9 year-old granddaughter who has been sewing up a storm. She called me to find out if she could get "some of that fuzzy stuff that you put in the middle" of a quilt. A new generation of quilters has been born!
Now I know that a quilt is not a quilt until it's quilted, but I am not quite ready to be standing at my quilting machine and frame yet. Until I am, I will just keep sewing quilt tops! Today I finished a cute little throw from 10- Minute Blocks by Suzanne McNeill.
Suzanne even has a YouTube video that shows how to make these blocks. They truly do take only about 10 minutes to make!
The fact that I had a pretty pink and cream Layer Cake from Moda's Candy Kisses line made it even more fun! Fast and fun - a good way to work my way back to sewing on a fairly regular basis.
Tomorrow I hope to get started on a huge pile of pillowcases!
