I’ve been a bit under the weather recently. When I’ve felt up to it I’ve been doing a little mindless sewing. Not that I really need to start a new project. Heaven knows my clothes line is full of quilts needing to be quilted. My Free For All quilt needs the blocks sewn together and Josh’s quiltneeds the last row added. But I’m not feeling up to moving back and forth to gather and sew the rows together let alone wrestle a quilt to get it quilted.
I have however wanted to make a quilt using only my lights. Like a quilt I saw in Sunday Morning Quilts and like Victoria has challenged over on 15 Minute Play. So I dumped my lights in a laundry basket and began sewing.
Mindlessly sewing strips and bits together is healing for me. After one day of sewing these bits together I started to feel better. By the end of the weekend I was almost back to myself and I had almost created another quilt.
Now I need to decide how big I want to make it. I could stop after 3 more blocks and the quilt would be 50″x 50″. That would be nice but a rectangle is more pleasing to the eye so I might have to add another row. Heaven knows I have enough scraps to do it.
