I was supposed to go to my Guild's Outreach Social Sew today but I stayed home instead. I have a sinus headache and sore throat and chills and I thought that being in a large room with lots of people and machines running would just be too noisy. I decided to work on my project at home instead and even though I missed out on the camaraderie I am glad I stayed home. Firstly, I won't be spreading any germs and secondly, I think I got way more sewing done than if I had attended the social sew. I very often spend more time with the social part than the sewing. ;)
Recently, I showed the first four blocks of this scrappy rectangle quilt. I had started it with the intention of using it for quilting practice and to give as a charity quilt.
There was no cutting required in the making of these block pieces, I just dumped out a bunch of 2" x 3.5" rectangles from my scrap bin and dug in. I chain pieced one rectangle after another to make the subunits.
