Formerly titled "Self-Diagnosed ADD". Lots of traffic to that site tells me that this isn't what they were looking for. I hope they enjoyed it anyway.Lately it seems I have a very short attention span. I can't seem to start and finish anything without moving onto something else 1st. I still have a few of those borders to get back to. Here is one I finished a couple of weeks ago when I had lost my camera. Ain't it a beaut? I'll tell you how I came up with this original design when I dig out the other pieces to illustrate the story.
Rather than work on the border project, I worked on those floral pinwheel blocks you saw a few posts back. While getting ready for a class I started rummaging through my orphan blocks and scraps. I pulled out a few boxes that I knew had odds and ends from a few quilts that I had made for the new book. I found the triangles for the hourglass blocks I put together (see the last post). Now that project is on hold. Yes, because it involves appliqué. I also found enough pieces for a few more Lemoyne stars. Had to make those.
Then I dug out my orphan blocks with 1800 reproduction prints. It's a small but growing pile. All the orphan blocks are kept together. I decided maybe it's time I work with the orphan blocks because I have a pile at least 6 inches high. These are my orphan blocks. I have almost as many in the pile for church.
I guess I am getting stuff done, but I don't feel very productive because it is little bits here and little bits there. It's better for me and I am feeling pretty good. Hope you are too. Sew long.
