Everyday the sun comes up

Life does not stand still ....

everyday the sun comes up and life continues

at the moment that life entails chasing children - getting them to sleep, getting them to wake up, getting them dressed and getting them out the door - lots of other "getting them..." in between 

Usually all that stuff doesn't bother me
but every now and then I get huffy 
and when that happens I find the best thing to do (other than go for a walk) is make something. 

Luckily for me I had been watching everyone else in the online quilting world over the last month make a scrappy trip quilt.

If you don't know what that is - then take a look at the FLICKR group hosted by Just a bit Frayed and it has all the links to the original pattern by Quiltville etc

Its a great pattern 
as usual I changed it a little bit
I used 3.5 inch strips as it was what I had in my scraps from previous quilts

1 X 3.5 inch strip selvedge to selvedge (42 inch useable print) will give you two blocks

1 X Fat Quarter strip (21inch long usable print) will give you one block

each block finishes at 18inches 

I think I am going to do 
4 Blocks X 5 Blocks?

anyway - its been lovely to just mindlessly sit and sew over the last few days
and I love the results so far

One of my jobs for this week is to list fabric in my etsy shop!

I took delivery of lots and lots of Fat Quarters of the below text fabric with the white base cloth

I finally got my hands on some copies of my two recent magazines!
They are in Australian shops now 

The below fabrics are available in my spoonflower shop - I'm thinking about buying some bulk and selling it through etsy ..... lets wait and see how I go :)

I'm off to make more scrappy blocks

Love the bigger scrappy trip along blocks. I am going to have to make a bigger one. I did a Christmas quilt with the smaller squares and by the time I was done I was over it. But the bigger blocks, love! Also your fabrics are lovely, I have bookmarked some for my fabric budget next month since its spent this month already! ;)

Siobhan Rogers said...

Thank you :) no idea how I missed this! And yes the bigger blocks are much more fun to piece!
