New Project

No automatic alt text available.

Sometimes, I just want to sew. I had been working on a Scrap Vortex quilt late last summer. It was about the same time my neighbor asked me to finish quilt. I feel I've lost interest in it. I really enjoyed working on Bonnie Hunter's mystery quilt so I have decided to make one of her quilts instead. I'm using the blocks from Scrap Vortex to make Carolina Chain. Each block measures 9.5 square. I'll need 72 squares to make this quilt.

The pattern is from this book which I love! So many ideas for those scraps!

This is Carolina Chain. What a great use for scraps! I plan on working on this quilt when I can. I'm in no rush. Cutting up my other blocks is a bit time consuming but I feel it's a better use of stash.  It's nice to work on right now while I'm trying to find backing for On Ringo Lake.

    1. Thanks for the vote of confidence! I feel life is too short to work on something I don't really like. Moving forward!!
