Call me a hoarder.
A fabric hoarder.
My sweet sister-in-law gave me the entire blue/green colorway of Patty Young's Sanctuary in a FQ stack... and I just recently decided to suck it up and cut into it. I've only been quilting for about 5 years so holding onto fabric for half of that time seems like hoarding to me!
BUT in just a few short sewing sessions I was able to whip up this quilt top, featuring 18" squares of Sanctuary plus a few other random prints I decided to throw in, and Kona Coal for the diamond corners.
Do any of you happen to know the official name for this quilt design? I really did just whip this up off the top of my head, but I'm sure its not original as its just too simple to not have been thought of yet.
It won't be quilted for a while yet so I'm content to have it hanging in my studio! Makes a love wall covering!
And whilst doing mindless sewing (nothing that requires loads of contemplation) and my part-time work-from-home job, I've been listening to an Audio book! Shocker! I don't own a Kindle, Nook, iPhone or iPad. And who has time for actual reading, anyhow?
I'd rather be sewing!
If you love historical fiction, and a fabulous Scottish accent, I highly recommend this (audio) book!
Another quilty blogger was raving about it and I thought I'd give it a try, imported all the way from the Mansfield Library. 28 cd's... and there are 3 or 4 sequels after this book, which my local library actually carries! Makes me wish I resided in the Scottish highlands to boot.... instead of Ohio.
Do you listen to anything while sewing?
I'm hooked - so I should start making a list of other audio books to try!
