Sometimes cast-off blocks discover their destiny all on their own.
I made a row of these stepping stone blocks when creating quilt backs for Roan’s Unknown Direction quilt.
They all rest in their own little bags conveniently provided by fabric shops with more flair than others with creative packaging. I’ve found that these unfinished cast-offs make the best step outs and samples for classes.
I’d pulled the strip of blocks out from hiding and was contemplating a baby quilt until this pillow shape/size and the strip of blocks stuck in my head as a match for tomorrow night’s Stepping Stone Workshop at Make*Mend*Do studio.
I set to work this afternoon on quilting and as usual, my thoughts were that I would have this done by the time Roan walked off the school bus. Why is it that I sew so much faster in my head?
Tomorrow I’ll change out thread to stitch the ditch down on the outside of the stones and fill in the blue with the same quilting design.
Hoping to have a pillow by Wednesday, but like I said, I sew faster in my head…regardless, I have something other than the quilt to show in the workshop.
Happy Monday to ya.
