Hi Friends! Good Month – can’t believe it’s already July! I found a good way to start this month – new quilt project!
Yesterday after my morning coffee and before going to work, I made this star. I picked the scraps just by instinct without any further plan, just what felt good for this one star. Last few days I have been thinking a lot … and ended up to start a new quilt project.
Against my schedule, I made second star in the evening … after organizing first several hours my fabric stash. Getting rid of some old ‘so tiny scraps’ that you wouldn’t never even keep them … hmmm, no, those I kept still, but some other ‘ugly’ scraps I threw away. If and when I continue to make story-pillows I need every tiny piece because they may have just the colour I need to put a nose to a dog or a wing to bird or a suitcase for a travelling cat.
Wonky star block looks fun and so different ‘in point’. Perhaps I put some stars like this.
One other evening, when I just passed my sewing place … I picked some little triangles … and after a while I had several blocks which will be perfect to join my new project.
This quilt project is not busy to be finished but slow to be enjoyed – like the favourite sweet which you like to eat slowly slowly to enjoy every bite and to make it last long. Unfortunately this time I didn’t have my favourite sweet, blueberry pie with ice cream!!!
I’m too busy to even try to make this quilt quickly. I haven’t made any plans for this quilt … if I wake up at night I may think what kind of blocks to make … during the day at work I ‘picture’ the blocks and fabrics in my thoughts … you know how often it’s enough just to watch the project on your sewing table, to make you happier.
One day … some day … there will be enough blocks and enough time to gather them to a quilt which will be full of light, most likely sunshine … something that says Good Morning – Have a Great Day!
Today this block made my day. Tomorrow it will be an other one. More about this project next time.
What makes you have a great start to your day?
Thank you for stopping by and for your wonderful and always appreciated comments!
