Moving It Forward

I’m so thankful for all the pre cutting I’ve done in the past filling project boxes with projects.  I do this mostly so I’ll be ready for each Quilty Hug sew in.  But it’s been a blessing now that my mobility is limited.  Everything is cut and ready for my to just sit and sew.  I may have to do a lot of cutting once I’ve recovered to replenish my project boxes but for now I’m happily sewing.

These little nine patches were in one box.  I had started them.  They are now all sewn.  I then framed them in a happy yellow for the one with orange centers.  

I’m planning orange for the yellow centered ones.  This would have been done but,  I’ve misplaced the orange.  How does that happen.  I didn’t think it was possible to lose BRIGHT ORANGE YARDAGE.  I’ve been using it in more than one project but somehow it is lost.  My neighbor took pity on me when I told her as she was borrowing my 1 1/2″ strip die.  We each have a Go and share dies.  So while she was out she picked me up some more.  Now I’ll be able to finish these cute little blocks and put them into a happy Quilty Hug.

I’ve also been focusing on turning a few of my free pieced quilts into 5″ x 7″ greeting cards.  

 Each card has a blank inside and one of my original free pieced quilts on the front.

 They are currently in my Etsy Shop, just in case you are looking for a fun, unique card to send.

 I did the same thing with 4″ x 6″ postcards.  A fun quilt post card without the work.  Send now.  Frame later.

What fun things are you moving forward?  Link up and let us see your progress.

    You'll find that fabric after you've sashed all the orange center 9 patches. Glad you had projects prepared while you heal!

  • Jen @ de Jong Dream House says:

    I LOVE the idea of using quilts to make cards! Who did you use to print them?

  • Nann says:

    When I had bunion surgery I realized that not showering was only an inconvenience — not driving was a hardship! (And I learned that I could operate my sewing machine with my left foot, though I only did piecing, not quilting.) Hope your healing goes well.
