Monday Making

Using the tiniest scraps...
I am  making some courthouse steps blocks.
The strips are all ABOUT 1" 
Some smaller.
Some larger.

First..
I begin with a teeny tiny RED center.
Then...
I add scrappy strips.
Dark and light.

AS you can see they are all a bit different in size.

That's the beauty of scrap quilting MY WAY.

I sew and sew.
I DO NOT take time to measure.
I line them up in rows that are ABOUT the same width.

Then....
When I get close to the end...
I will do some trimming.
or adding.
Whatever is needed.

I love the ADVENTURE of it all.
I also enjoy the peaceful SEWING time.

IT is a NO STRESS kind of piecing adventure.

While I am sewing
the garden is GROWING by LEAPS and bounds!!!


The zucchini is, of course, included in almost every meal.

And when we've had enough...
I'll give some to the neighbors!!
:)
What are YOU making this week?

  11. cute little courthouse steps blocks. I have a bunch of blue and orange shades cut to 1.5". I was going to make a very complicated pineapple piece. I've given up on that after years of trying to get the blocks done. It isn't going to happen so I plan on repurposing the strips somehow. I'm still looking for a block I want to do with these strips. And, honestly, my motivation is low!
