I've decided to stop sitting here and wishing and hoping that maybe someday I'll do some quilting. Instead, I'm going to do it NOW! (I'm excited).
And yes, this is one of the ways I've decided to curb my craftiness urges so I don't start sewing baby girl clothes for unknown recipients again :)
So, over on the blog "Why Not Sew?" the author is doing a Quilt-A-Long. Thus, she is going to put up instructions every week or so with another block. I think her goal is to do 12 blocks. The kicker? We're hand-piecing them! Yes, you may think we're crazy, but seriously, it's quite fun. It's just a bunch of running stitches that you can do in the evening while watching TV with your special someone (instead of slaving away over your sewing machine in a different room).
This was block #1 called "Churn Dash." I finished it in a few hours. It was my first hand-piecing since I was a little girl thinking I was Laura Ingalls Wilder sewing felt pieces together during a 3-day long snow storm that took out our electricity (you gotta be tough living on the prairie!)
