I’ve been adjusting nicely to my temporary August living space– but only now do I feel like I’ve truly christened it with the creation of my first quilt.
I always come back to simplicity every now and then– and I’m always pleased with the result. The combination of measurement and slight improvisational results in a pattern balancing wonkiness and structure that’s just my style.
I cut all the black rectangles tot he same size, but pieced the blocks improvisationally, switching up the orientation and placement of the black rectangle, then trimmed each block to 8 1/2″.
Throughout the course of creating this quilt, I had to make some adjustments to my little sewing set-up. Turns out, I need a very specific flow– from sewing table to cutting table and back again.
I think I’ve made the necessary adjustments, and I’m officially back into a smooth quilting groove.
I’m also getting used to a new photography situation since I don’t have easy access to an attractive outdoors space. But a combination of natural light and good timing seems to suffice.
Clearly, I’m going to survive.
