Deprived No More!

I haven't spent too much time in my sewing room over the past few days and I feel like I have been somewhat deprived! I have decided that I am going to spend most of my day today playing around making more winding ways blocks and also getting some scraps cut.

I have already sewn the center sections of about 13 blocks together and I have found that it is better to sew over that little seam a couple times. The seam is just so short that if I only sew it once then it comes apart very easily.

I have also pinned the corner sections of quite a few blocks and have now started to sew them together. I plan to chain stitch these blocks together and I think that will help me to complete them fairly quickly.

I also have plans to make at least one quilt using 2" x 3.5" rectangles so I have started cutting my scraps to size to add to my rectangle bin. It will be a very scrappy quilt and I do need to have a lot of variety so after I cut my scraps I will probably start cutting into 2" and 3.5" strips from my strip bins.

Have fun sewing! I've been deprived since Saturday night and am getting cranky...... I need to sew. 8:07AM you can bet I'll be in my sewing room tomorrow once kids are dropped to school.
