Sewing just because

No reason to sew just needed to do something. It stormed yesterday and and the stress of family  have gotten to me. I got out the 13/4 inch strips and started sewing them up.  Tried sewing strips then cutting them up and I was frustrated with the time it took to do that. I prefer the individual squares not strip sets. Besides it is the same amount of cutting. I do the cutting first. The strip sets you cut after sewing. Choose what works for you.
I got 63 4-patches done and they are 3 inches finished. Not sure how far this is going to go. I have plenty more strips to cut and stitch if I choose to. 

Decided to keep my mind busy. We had over 3 inches of rain in 24 hours. The wind and awful down pours yesterday. So last night I kept busy on Pinterest and was really searching all kinds of quilts, blocks, and designs. Many good ideas for the future. 

I need some me time in the next few days. We have had visitors from family that live out of town. A family funeral happened.  I maybe will have an overnight guest on Friday and I haven't finished cleaning the extra bedroom. 

In my organizing the sewing room I have found different things that I look at as why did I do that. I have 4-patches, 9-patches, 16-patches, 25-patches and 36-patches sewn in many different sizes. I have several different sting blocks made in many sizes.What m i going to do with them. Who knows Chris

Chris, with all those odd patches - put them all together in one quilt! I did that once and 'framed' them out with black and was surprised what a really pretty quilt it made. My daughter saw it on the design wall before I finished it and immediately claimed it as her own..
