I am not one that can make a quilt by pulling out
scraps of fabric from a bin or bag and randomly
sew them together.
Scrappy quilts need to be controlled for me.
I want ways that are going to move the process
along for me... make things faster.

I measured each piece that was sewn on and noted it.

which makes it easy to keep track of how many
There are now 30 blocks made!
Only 91 more to go!

but I have room for my Ipad with my audio books,
as well as my evening glass of wine on the
card table next to my sewing machine.
The good news is it looks like things are beginning
to move in the renovation area.
My contractor thinks he can begin work in two weeks!
I cannot wait to get my new Hidey Hole!!
