Well, I have done the laundry and the paperwork and, resisted the VERY great temptation of looking through two beautiful magazines which arrived for me yesterday. The Spring and Summer issues of 'Crazy Quilt Quarterly' that I ordered have arrived!! I could hardly wait to have a good read through the lovely magazines by Pamela Kellogg but, I needed to remain focussed on my Farm Girl Vintage blocks as I did not want to fall any further behind, so I just had to make do with a quick look through them. They look gorgeous!!
I set myself up a 'cutting station' on my dining room table and sorted through lots of fabrics. I have to admit to being a little out of my comfort zone with some of the brighter fabrics I think these blocks need as, I usually use much softer colours. However, that is part of the fun of joining in!!
Sorting through the fabrics did lead to some reorganisation of my boxes of scrap fabrics which, took longer than I had hoped but, I did eventually start work on the blocks and I now have six 12" blocks all cut out ready to be pieced together.
Luckily it is a long weekend here in the UK this weekend, so I am hoping that I will get some quality time in my sewing room and have the blocks all caught up by the beginning of next week. I also hope to have time to sit and quietly read the magazines to get some inspiration for embellishing my next crazy quilt block. If what I have seen is anything to go by, I won't be disappointed!! Have a happy weekend!
