Sometimes I just need to quilt. It’s relaxing. It’s (mostly) predictable, especially when you’re dealing with squares and rectangles. Quilting makes me happy.
Linen makes me happy, too, even though it’s hard to deal with sometimes.
Linen + Patchwork = Happy
Linen + Patchwork on a quilt back + that wrinkly look = Happy x2.
Sometimes when I order natural linen the colors vary. This time it was very dark. Wasn’t sure I liked it when I opened the box. Really liking it now that it’s been made into a quilt.
And you know what about this project REALLY makes me happy?
A small, organized scrap basket = Happy x 3
Everything that is narrower than 6″ or smaller than a fat quarter goes in here. Just a few days ago, this basket was overflowing. Now, after some purging and quilting, it’s perfect. I line the fabrics up so I can see a little sliver of each. That way I don’t have to search so hard for the perfect scrap.
Wishing you happy sewing!
