Fresh Sewing Day, August Edition

1 08 2013

I got a ton done this month, despite having essentially taken a sewing hiatus for the middle of the month. Really, I just wanted to piece something quick, and granny blocks have been calling my name since joining the Granny Block Bee.

Fresh Sewing Day 01, August

Fresh Sewing Day 02, August
My month was comprised by a handful of swap blocks, and a whole bunch of granny blocks, obviously. Not that I mind – I might have finally worked the granny block  obsession out of my system. I even managed to rustle up enough of each color so that no block repeats the same fabric in the outer ring.

Of course, I’m already thinking ahead to the next project, but I’m telling myself that I need to finish up some of the things that I’ve already got in progress. I need to get stuff out of the in-progress pile. Still, I really want to work with some paper-pieced stars next…

I love that these blocks are such a punch of color. I can’t wait to get the top together.

I tend to sew in fits and spurts, particularly when I get obsessed like I have been with the granny blocks.

I can say, though, that I’ve remembered to clean and feed the family, too!

heh… I’ve never managed to not start working on the next project. My brain thrives on the manic jump from one project to the next. 🙂

Mine does, too, but I’d really like to get a couple of quilts out of things! I’m at the point where I feel like I’m swimming in tops, even though there are only three…

Only, ha!

Thank you! The awesome thing about granny blocks is that they’re chain piecing, so they’re super easy to put together once the squares are all cut.
