Monday I had about 40 minutes before I needed to start dinner, so I grabbed out this box of Kaffe Fasset fabric scraps, sorted out the cooler colored prints and started pressing. The scraps were sorted into piles by size as each one came off the ironing board.
The second sewing room session was spent cutting all the pieces. Since I had carefully stacked the prints as I sorted them the cutting went amazingly fast! All the pieces went into this box until time for sewing.
There are only 20 blocks so it took no time to get the blocks to this point, maybe 30 minutes between other activities one afternoon.
The next chunk of sewing time finished the blocks, although they had to wait another day for pressing. I didn't have enough time to actually arrange them on the design wall, but Daughter dropped by and we swapped blocks around and decided on this layout together. Much more fun with Daughter!!
Friday I woke up before the alarm and decided to get busy! I shoved my glasses over my half asleep eyes, shoved my cold toes into slippers and ran for the sewing room. Stitch stitch stitch-- and rows are made! Later that afternoon I found about 45 minutes and sewed the rows into this quilt top!
It's pretty bright and wild, but I kinda like it!
The 1/2 yard of dots was purchased for this project, but the rest came out of the scrap box. Not sure what I'll do about backing right now. It's time to dig through the stash and see what I can find, but I might just purchase a wide solid and call it done! I always think of projects like this as Bonus Quilts, something awesome for practically nothing.
It's also a great reminder about how much sewing can be done in those stolen moments.
Hope you're stealing some great sewing time this week!
Pattern is "Midnight Garden" from Villa Rosa Designs.
Quilt top is 54 x 68.
