If you pop by my blog occasionally, you will have seen that I've been busy with a couple of easily pieced scrappy quilts, using up all those fabric bits, trying to keep a check on the overflowing basket under my sewing table!
Making a quick quilt can be very rewarding.
They're a fast fix for that creative need. They are perfect for when there's time constraints. And they use up some of the ever-growing stash of fabric we all have!
I especially love...trying to make fabric choices that ensure contrast & value, and including a bit of complex piecing that can take time - but adds so much, and making those final decsions about borders & binding that can make or break it...
For example, I love checking in with Megan @

At present, Vintage Spin quilt is my "something", my "slow burner" project.
It is taking a bit of time, and the main reason for that is - I do get a bit bored making the same block over & over!! However, once in a while I make a couple more...
Holding my breathe each time I sew the two 1/2's together,
hoping it'll lay flat when I open it out!
Squaring up the circle, hoping they all end up the same size!
I'm aiming for 13 1/2" blocks finished
Thanx for stopping by & reading!
