A Change of Pace. Or Not.

Things have been busy lately. I've been putting what little bit of time I have for quilting into applique or hand quilting work. Then I found myself in the quilting room digging through fabrics for no particular reason--just because it feels good. ...

Things have been busy lately. I’ve been putting what little bit of time I have for quilting into applique or hand quilting work. Then I found myself in the quilting room digging through fabrics for no particular reason—just because it feels good. 

Little scrappy corners…

A project caught my eye and made me feel sorta guilty about the lack of attention. Then it kind of beckoned.

Chain piecing love.

Come work with me and things will move quickly.

A whole pile of quilty goodness!

Almost anything moves more quickly than needleturn applique…

Nicely ironed and ready for sizing…

It felt good and there was immediate progress made.

Cutting off almost as much fabric as I added on.

I admired my work and wondered if I could actually get it sewed onto the quilt someday soon.

The potential border….

Then I got distracted by the middle of the quilt. Does it need an applique fix? Hmm.. Lets try this and see if it makes things better.

Auditioning an applique fix….

Wash, rinse, repeat. How and why does it always come back to applique right now?*sigh  Don’t mind me. I’m just having an obsessive, fixated issue with my needle and thread lately…..
