Looking back on things,
I chose the perfect time to make a scrappy quilt.
Sewing together 2 1/2" squares in a somewhat random way
is really mindless. I didn't have to concentrate on anything, really.
I went back and forth on what to do with the borders of this quilt
and after realizing that I didn't have enough of the white fabric
to do what I had in mind,
I decided to add three more rows of the scrappy squares.
I love it!!
There are so many fun fabrics in this quilt
and some go way back to the beginning of my quilting days.
There aren't many batiks or Christmas fabrics in the top.
I've saved those fabrics for other things.
It's a little bit of an "I Spy" quilt.
Do you see golf balls, a sneaker, an orange, a pumpkin and a dreidel in the squares above?
I need to get the backing ready and then get this quilted.
I may do it myself by quilting a grid across it.
This quilt top made a huge dent in my bucket of 2 1/2" squares!
I have had several questions about the pattern for this quilt from
No Reply Bloggers.
I did not have a pattern for this quilt.
The design just came to me as I went along making it.
Since we are all at home and not able to go out much,
I've been cooking more.
One of the things I have wanted to make for a long time is pasta.
An order for pasta making attachments was put in and they were
delivered last week.
Easter Sunday Doodlebug and I made homemade fettuccuni with shrimp scampi.
There are things I learned making pasta for the first time.
One thing is that we will be doing it again!!
Be safe and be well.
