One last small quilting finish for the year. These tumblers were leftover from a quilt Mom made a number of years ago … now it’s a doll quilt with a soft Minkee backing. It’s crazy but I just hate seeing leftovers go to waste!
With my fabric stored mostly in large bins, I’ve been a little worried about being able to work in the weeks after my surgery. They’re telling me no bending, lifting, or twisting for 6 weeks … I never realized how much I lift and bend when I’m working until my back and leg pain started up this summer. So I find myself pulling things from the bins every time I go in the storage nook … and now I have a number of potential easy projects sitting out where I can just grab and sew.
Our January challenge is scraps so I’m getting ready for that too. We’ll see how far I get before surgery since I won’t be able to lay blocks out on the design wall without bending afterwards… at the very least I figure I can just make a bunch of blocks and since I use these 2 patterns kind of frequently, any extras can be used in the next quilt.
I even found a bin where I had some pieces already cut that I’d forgotten about.
