Putting the Pieces Togethers

Life throws you curves.  Often it does not go as planned.  What do you do when this happens?  I turn to friends and little bits of fabric.  

So yesterday I headed to the senior center to baste a couple of quilts.  Then after lunch I put the little nine patches from the previous post together with a few snowball blocks.  Once that was complete I finished up the last mini Dresden.  Sewed all the scrappy background pieces together and added the mini Dresdens.  

Today, although I don’t quite know how I’ll deal with this new challenge.  I know I can get through it with help from my friends and little bits of fabric.

    I too find that fabric and time with my sewing machine can be quite therapeutic…sending positive thoughts and hugs your way…

    That's what I need, a prescription for sewing therapy. I adore the mini dresdens!

  • audrey says:

    Your fabrics are looking very cheerful which is always good therapy. I often turn to my fabric to help smooth out the rough patches myself.:)

  • Sherri says:

    Fabric is the best therapy! But I will keep you in my prayers, too!

    Love your scrappy Dresden quilt!

    Wishing you the best, Em. I tend to turn to stitching during the stressful times too.

  • Judy says:

    Quilting really does help when life throws unexpected things your way. There's something quite peaceful about sewing fabric together and then seeing the pattern emerge. I love the bright, cheery colors of your quilts!
