I started a new project yesterday. A while back I found this pin on Pinterest and found the idea very clever. I understand this idea originated with Sharon Craig. Yesterday, I decided to try it out with a stack of 10″ squares I bought a few years ago from Connecting Threads. Here is one finished block.
The process is simple. You stack up three squares face up on your mat.
Do a bit of slicing and dicing and you get this.
Rearrange the bits and you are ready to sew.
You do have to trim your blocks down to finish them. I got 12 blocks done in short order.
I like that this is a very efficient use of the squares. Not yet sure what this will become. There are enough squares to make 12 more blocks but that would still be a pretty small quilt.
I have another project I should be working on but the ideas aren’t flowing there yet. I think the biggest boost to creativity is to just keep working on something.
Every morning, I get up, have coffee, read my Bible, and talk to God. But it is in the quiet of the sewing room, that my mind becomes quiet too and I can listen and hear Him talk to me.
Linking up with Lee at Freshly Pieced for WIP Wednesday.
