Hardly any time to sew but a few weeks ago I simply had to sit down at my machine. I pulled out the box of 2″ squares and sorted the blues and neutrals because I remembered a quilt I really liked in this book.
I just sewed blue and light squares together – with this quilt in mind.
The outside work has dominated my life for the past two weeks leaving me no free time. When I went back to look at the quilt, I decided I didn’t need this bigger quilt. What I really wanted was a red, white and blue table topper for Memorial Day, Flag Day and Fourth of July.
I didn’t know just where this was headed but at least I was sewing – and relaxing and resting my aching body.
This is not what I thought I was making when I started sewing squares together but I’m going to quilt it, bind it in red and put it on my table.
Tomorrow I’ll show you another one of Connie’s “Florida” quilts – she made them while on vacation. Connie loves house blocks. Wait till you see this new quilt! Here’s a hint.
