Actually it's Design Sewing Table Monday, but that's just semantics! Should have "staged" the picture, but, hey, just keeping it real here!
I worked most of the day yesterday on the 3 Sisters in Rome quilt, and am about two-thirds done making the blocks. It's colorful and scrappy - or as scrappy as you can get using just one line of fabric.
I've discovered three things:
1. It's boring sewing these strips, but boring is good when I haven't sewn in so long.
2. I'm not planning any colors, just grabbing a strip and sewing it on. It's amazing how many times I'll grab a strip that touches another strip of the same fabric. With 40 fabrics here, I would have thought that wouldn't happen very often.
3. No matter how nice and neat and organized I start out, I always end up with a pile of messy fabrics next to my machine. Creative chaos? Please agree with me!
I hope to be able to work on these a bit each night this week. Who knows? I might be ready to assemble the top next weekend.
