Olympic Patchwork Piecing and a Poet Shows Up

Wondering why I keep my fancy stitched tablecloths hidden away. I found this one while looking for props for a photo. Put it away in my quilting space to keep it less hidden this time.

thin scraps for small piecing

Been working to finish writing for a deadline. Back into the Patchwork Olympics tonight. Hoping to catch up by sewing strips together then cutting them into smaller pieces.

Chain piecing the matched strips should speed things up too.

I couldn't resist laying some of the tiny pieces out to see what a block would look like. It will finish at 8 inches square. I realize now I'm actually missing one more row across the top;)

It's also a full moon tonight. Thought I had made a cutting error and had to throw away some of these blocks. Got really mad at myself - for the mistake, for the waste, for being so tired when it was finally time to quilt. just. for. me.

Realized in the end, when it turned out I had been wrong but in the right way and I could still use the scraps, that I was making a dreamboard too.

Find MAKE time to quilt for you when you are not tired. Please.
