So, hands up if you are good at procrastinating on those must-do/in-the-middle-of/cant-be-bothered-with-it-anymore/cant-make-a-decision-on projects... I suspect most of us have experienced the joys of moving onto something new and shiny instead of sticking to one project!
Well, a couple of weeks ago I was having such a moment on just about every front...couldn't decide, didn't feel like that, all too hard on another... So what did I do?
I made a quilt instead!
That's perfectly normal behaviour isn't it?
I had a roll of retro 30's fabric that I bought on a trip to Hamilton with a friend a couple of months ago, that had been winking and smiling at me ever since... so in the midst of all the piles of stuff to do and projects to complete I ripped that roll open and embarked on a scrappy-trip-along quilt!
The cute retro zoo block was perfect for the back, so it became the centre and some vintage sheet fat quarters completed the backing. Every last bit of that 30's fabric roll was used. In the font, in the back and in the scrappy binding.
One of my op-shoppped blankets for batting, and my walking foot got a good workout with all the straight-line quilting. I adore these old-school prints - so cute and fun and charming :)
It is the first thing and quilt! I've made for us and for no particular reason! (Other than procrastination of course!) It's been used daily since - our family quilt (ie: for all of us to share!) and lives in the living room for snuggling under and playing with.
