I find that my crafting output drops dramatically during the summers. I’m too busy going out, hanging out with friends, and soaking up as much summer as I can before another Chicago winter. I already have enough fabric to last a lifetime and yet, I have so much trouble not buying more. These are the latest acquisitions from this weekend.
Feeling guilty about my purchases and how little I’ve been sewing lately, I dusted off the sewing machine and did the first bit of sewing in weeks. I followed this quilt-as-you-go tutorial. I first saw this technique in a Japanese craft book and immediately fell in love with it. It will probably take me a zillion years to make a quilt’s worth of these squares but I really want to give it a go. Expect to see a few more of these blocks soon.
