Monday Making

I know I have a lot of projects that need some focus on, but I need a day to play.  I have pulled out one of my barrels - 1.5" squares and dumped it by the machine.  I find working tiny relaxing and keeping to something simple, yet I think is such huge bit of heritage to our quilting world.  The basic 4-patch block.

I see a lot of people making the small 4-patch for other quilts, but I fell in love with this quilt on Temecula Quilt Co.  Maybe it was the setting of a block on point set into a quilt on point OR maybe it was the cheddar background.  The plus side, I have everything I need for this quilt right on hand!  No shopping required.

And to add to the cheddar love lately, I will take breaks from the machine to get more of the cheddar hexies added to the diamond project.

Take time to play today - it's Spring in some parts of the world and tomorrow it arrives here (hope it doesn't snow),

Sewingly Yours,

What a great photo setting, I need an old wooden gate down here. We are in autumn, dark mornings already, and leaves are only just starting to change colour.

I love this quilt. I spent the weekend emptying my scrap bucket and cutting them into usable sizes. I have the cheddar too, it’s been waiting for just the right project. Thank you so much for sharing!
