A Little bit of slow stitching

Last night
after a VERY big day
all I wanted to do was SIT and watch something....
knitting in hand.
 
But my knitting skills are not UP THERE yet.
I totally forgot how to increase at the end of each row.
:(
I did not have the patience to figure it out....
so I pulled out something that did NOT require
BRAIN power.
;)
 
This is one of my very first dump and sew quilts.
A little tiny baby quilt.....
Put together on a ski trip (I wasn't skiing)
about 5 years ago.
 
DUMP and sew is the technical term
for sewing random pieces together
in a random format.
It's always nice when the random pieces
have a theme.
These scraps were mostly 30's looking prints.
 
It was a very small baggy of scraps...as I recall.

I added batting and an old piece of cotton to the back.

Quickly spray basted and gave myself a LONG line to quilt.

Pulled out some BRIGHT green thread.
THEN...
I was able to sit down after my LONG day
and STITCH.
;)

I have a few lines done.
Yeah!
I KNOW this little quilt will be calling my name
 from the dining room table
ALL day long as I do my chores.
 
I will try NOT to listen.
;)

  4. What a sweet baby quilt! I love that all your scraps go together so nicely, and your wonderful hand quilting will make it perfect! Isn't it nice to have something to work on for those times we just want to sit and do a little something without thinking too hard? :)
