Inspired by fabric

I have been sewing. I have managed to sew 80 flying geese units for my log cabin quilt. (124 required) "Managed" to sew them that is before they got packed up into a box. Such a relief to have them in a box! I was really sick of it all. They can sit in that box for a week or so and maybe I will like them again. (I hear that absence makes the heart grow fonder.) Meanwhile . . . . . .

I bought these fabrics from the patchwork apple the day of the log cabin class. Last night after I had packed up the log cabins these fabrics called to me. I only have 50 cms of them all up, so I decided to use some moda bella solid with them in order to make a small quilt top. All the blocks are finished and sit waiting for me to put them together on my sewing desk. And then I can quilt it! I love small projects!

I have the two on the left in my stash too. Good way to make them go farther.

Yes, absence does make the heart grow fonder, as does making a quick, small project, nothing like a change for rejuvenating the fondness for an older project.

I dont know about absence making the heart grow finder. I havent touched my pinwheels since about March and I dont like the idea of touching them now any more than I did then.

But as usual I am digressing...

Love the blocks. 80 Flying geese is a completely amazing effort. You're on fire girl! And I hear you on the small projects thing.

(I think I just guilted myself into taking those pinwheels out of the box this weekend)
