I did indeed sew this weekend. I told you in my last post I was going to. I'm a quilter again! After nearly 8 months of selling a house, packing, storing, building a new house; moving and unpacking, I didn't forget how. :) I was snug as a bug in a rug in my almost studio Saturday afternoon and most of Sunday after church. I didn't leave except for bathroom breaks and nourishment. It was good for this quilter's soul, let me tell you.
I found the paper-piece patterns for a Courthouse Steps (4 1/2" blocks) quilt I started last March. Although I could not find the impressive stack of finished blocks anywhere. Now where could they be?! The finished quilt requires 400+ blocks. I gave all my scraps away at my workshops this summer in 2 gallon bags as door prizes, so I had to spend a good amount of time cutting 1 1/4" strips before I could sew. I made 12 lovely little blocks. I feel so much better now. Quilting really is my therapy and cure for anything that ails me. Here they are...
I took a couple more pictures of the house to show you. This is the entry from the garage. It comes thru the laundry room. In a past post I showed you the antique tin ceiling panels I bought. I painted them white and put them on the walls here for wainscotting and topped with a wide Colonial trim board. I think it gave my laundry room some instant old character. What do you think?
Ok, I'm off to sew!!! Keep stitching!
