Quick Project Progress

Storms came through much later than expected yesterday. I still made good progress on my placemat/table runner project. It’s gray today so I have no idea what kind of weather we’ll have today. I may try to get in a little long arming this afternoon.

Fighting that Stale Feeling

It can be refreshing to work on a quick and easy project. Many of my projects take a long time to complete. Once in a while it is refreshing to working on a shorter two to three day project. It keeps my creativity fresh. And, I get something finished in a shorter period of time.

After 100 days of making tiny paper-pieced blocks, a break is a good thing. Yes, I did complete a couple projects during that time but, I’m finding the placemat/table runner project the perfect project for getting my mojo back in the groove.


Continuing the 100 Day Project blocks, Day 95 of The 100 Day Project Mystery Quilt is Prairie Queen. This is a 3″ block.

This block combines the ‘Shoo-Fly’  with 4-Patch units.

    I’ve made several of those runners. They are quick and a satisfying fix. Enjoy and relax. I’m continuing to work on my black and white quilt. With 10 blocks to go, waiting for more blue fabric to arrive from Missouri Star. I may start arranging and sewing blocks together. We are enjoying a welcome cool respite from the heat today. Have a great day.

      It is satisfying to finish a quick easy project once in awhile. Looking forward to seeing pictures of your black and white quilt.
