I had so much fun, working late into the night on my Scraps Quilt. I had shared this photo below on my facebook page last night and got some wonderful positive feedback, which felt so great!! And, I have almost two more blocks finished since these were taken.
This project is just so perfect for me right now, I am really loving it. As someone who admittedly struggles with quilting, I feel like I am finding my quilting niche with this project. And that feels really great!
I've learned, in these last almost two years of sewing, that I am not a pattern follower. I've tried and I just never get it right. I'm that way with sewing, knitting, cooking... It's really best for me to just read the directions and then go for it without following the rules exactly, but to just use them as I guide. Most of the time it works, or it forces me to create my own patterns and projects, which is good. But sometimes it's a little frustrating, too.
There are some patterns that I really, really want to tackle this year -- Anna's 241 Tote pattern, a Swoon Quilt, and lots of Jeni's Lined Drawstring Bags, to name a few. I know I'll get to them eventually!
Today, the scrappy mess and progress continues!
I'm linking up at Freshly Pieced for Wip Wednesday! How about you, what are you up to today?
Happy Wednesday, friends! ♥
