For a while now I seem to have mislayed my stitching mojo and have just been enjoying doing some rythmic crochet. Now that my crochet project is nearly complete I thought it may be time to get back to some stitching . A few years ago I decided not to buy any more patchwork magazines as I rarely found more than 1 or 2 projects I wanted to do in each issue and sometimes they even reused projects from older issues. I figured I would rather invest in books which were my genre so I could make several projects from the one book. I was paying around $10 for a magazine when I could buy a book for around $30 with heaps of projects I liked. I sometimes buy a more expensive mag called Simply Vintage but I particularly love many things in it when I do buy one. So, I recently revitalised my mojo from this lovely book .
That got me going! This little quilt jumped out at me.
Ofcourse, I don't make life easy by following the instructions to rotary cut and machine piece. No, no no. I made a template , selected fabrics from my stash and cut each individual piece by hand. You all know that I much prefer hand piecing but many would question my sanity. I am making this little beauty slightly larger and have made a start on setting out the first 2 rows ready to stitch.
This took some concentration because the half square triangles are placed in different ways. This will be a check and double check as I go project for sure.
Now back to finishing my crocheted throw and cushion.
