I haven’t felt very quilty the past month or so. It’s odd that Monday, the day I came down with a nasty cold, was the day I had the urge to sew again. I pulled out all those 800+ pieces I had cut for a blue version of Kyoto Gardens by Judy Martin but it’s a bit fussy and my virus-addled self couldn’t muster up any enthusiasm to work on it.
Still, I really had the urge to sew. I thought perhaps a pattern with no points to match, and nice big pieces would be just the thing. I spent quite a bit of time with graph paper and coloured pencils and came up with nothing interesting. I should have leafed through my idea sketchbook from the start, because an idea was just waiting there on the page when I finally got around to it. I tweaked it a bit then spent the evening cutting 96 large squares of fabric.
Tuesday I coughed and sewed.
It’s still a work in progress. I’m tweaking as a I go, pestering my husband for opinions along the way. Nothing except the star points and string blocks are sewn yet. I’m really liking where it’s headed though!
