New wonky blocks

I've been trying over the weekend to adjust my sleeping patterns so I can cope with my night shift tomorrow night and instead I've just got myself stressed and more tired!

I decided to ignore the ironing pile, doing that in the middle of the night is not high on my list and got the sewing machine out instead. Much more fun and relaxing.

I made a load more mini scrap patches which has made a lovely big dent in the scraps box. I've organised the rest into suitable sets for string blocks and I started some new blocks.

These are wonky corner blocks based on the log cabin. Using some 10 inch squares of mixed fabric, I cut them into rough strips. I try not to think about the placement too much, just pick them up at random and see what happens. I'm finishing them off at 8.5 inch square. It will be fun to play with the layout when I have a few more.

Playing with fabric beats ironing any time of day, Shevvy.
Have a good week, I'll be thinking about you.

Glad you got some sewing time in. Sounds so much more interesting than ironing.

(I managed to successfully avoid my ironing all weekend despite the new ironing board cover)

Quilting even in the middle of the night is more enjoyable then ironing.
