Australia is full of big things. I even did a post about some of them once. But nothing has been bigger this week than my mojo. I was so smokin', I was on fire.
Inspired by a post Tazzie did late last week, I made a jelly roll race quilt. Nobody wanted to do it with me so I raced against myself. It took 2 hours and 15 minutes from start to finish. I'm currently on a pitstop while I wait for my border and backing fabric to arrive.
I finished some more flowers for my grandmother's flower garden. Only 28 to go. Plus about 800 plain hexies to go round them all...I keep telling myself it's going to be brilliant when it's finished (in about 2015)
I made 10 more blocks for my poor neglected selvage quilt but due to an unfortunate cutting incident I only have 9 to show you here.
Ironically that is the number of whole fingers I have left after a second incident with the rotary cutter. The amount of blood was quite impressive. Mr. P had to do a mercy dash to the chemist for medical supplies so I could stick the side of my finger back in place. Naturally I kept sewing until the supplies arrived. I was a woman on a mission and nothing was going to stop my mojo.
The Contrary HST quilt got one more border. The other three that match are well under way. I'm hoping for finish on this quilt top in the next few days. I'm making it for someone I like a lot and she has no idea I'm doing it. I love surprises.
More from the Quite Contrary Fabric Line- all of the hourglass blocks finally got squared up and laid out so I can sew them together into something that resembles a quilt top.
I started cutting blocks for a tumbler quilt. I've been itching to start this for weeks. Then I did some calculations and realised I had to cut 324 of the little blighters.
So I convinced myself that I should probably check my template was OK and started making this cushion as a prototype instead.
And my lantern quilt got 20 blocks finished. I really love this fabric and the quilt is unlike anything I've ever done before. And since these are technically Christmas fabrics I'm hoping I'll finally finish a Christmas quilt I actually want to keep. (I know- Christmas in April -I'm a wild and crazy girl )
With all this mojo going on , my vow to sew a zip on my own, without Sara's tutelage was put on the back burner (can you say procrastination?) but I did put together some scraps for the front and back of the pouch.
I am on a 5 day break until Monday so in between playdough duty with Little P and the mundane chores that make up the rest of my life I'm planning to continue this amazing run of creativity.
To see more creative peeps pop on over to Kate's and have a look what other people did with their 15 minutes this week...
