So we're home again. And this was the sight that greeted me yesterday morning as I mooched around wondering what to do. A cupboard full of things to do! However I was completely uninspired and did nothing. Well, I did sort out the hand stitching I had been doing on the train. Today was a different story.
I was wanting to make a quilt, but didn't really know where to start. Then I remembered the reproduction nine-patch swap I did a couple of years ago with Christine as the swap Mama. Hooray! A quilt with all the patchwork done! (I so am finishing things this year!) I laid them out and decided that there were four blocks I wasn't in love with. Two could be dispensed with, but two needed to be replaced so I made two more nine-patches and then laid the blocks out (see photo above). Isn't it beautiful? I even have border fabric for it! I really am liking this. I am going to give it to a friend, so it even has somewhere to go once it is finished. Must get back to sewing those rows together!
