A Little Something New

I've got lots of things to get done over the next few days, none of them to do with quilts, but I took an hour before bed Saturday night and decided to just start cutting and see if I could get the pieces ready for a two color baby quilt. Those strips and squares didn't take long to cut, so I sewed the strips together and pressed them open and cut them into segments....and by the time my hour was done I had all of the nine-patch blocks done. 

Another little chunk of time and I'll have the snowball blocks done and be ready to assemble the top. As busy as things are right now, I need to remember that quilting and knitting calm me down and that stealing bits of time to catch my breath is a good idea.

That was certainly quick work to get the 9-patches done. There's going to be a lucky baby with such a cheerful quilt.

Sometimes a little sewing mental health break is good. Your little quilt will be so cute when it's done!
