This and That and a Bit of Slow Stitching 

It has been a great weekend here so far. After church, I may be taking a road trip with Daughter #3 for some shopping. So that meant casting about for a hand project. I pulled out this oldie that I haven’t worked on in ages. I think scrap quilts will always be my favorites.

 
I would be happy to just get that partial row finished. Right now, this is about 48 by 56 inches or so. I’m not sure how big I want this to be. 

I joined a Facebook group for people buying and selling Accuquilt dies etc. Its called Accuquilt Sales. Someone posted a note that this die was on clearance online and they got it price matched in the store. 

 
I know, I know, I said no more log cabins for me. But this is not paper piecing and the cutting will be a breeze. The logs finish at an inch wide.

I stopped at a little antique shop last week and found this vintage pants hanger. 

 
It’s perfect for hanging my little quilts. Now to find a place to hang the hanger. 

I haven’t done any piecing in over a week and I’m looking forward to doing some this week. But first, I’m going to take some time to smell the daffodils. 

 
Have a wonderful day!

  3. Enjoy your road trip! What a great way to spend a Sunday. Thanks for sharing your lovely hexagon quilt with Oh Scrap!

    And I say, get the die. I love sewing log cabins, it is all that cutting that I don’t enjoy.

  4. I’ve had the log cabin dies on my wish list for the longest time. Perhaps if they’re on clearance, I’ll bite the bullet and make the purchase.

    I love that little pants hanger turned quilt hanger … cute!

    Enjoy your drive. It’s going to be nice here today … I think I’ll sit out on the deck with some hand stitching.
