Sometimes you just need to sew.

And that’s exactly what I did.

This week (and these last few weeks) have been a little on the heavy side, so some reconnecting with my sewing machine was very much in order. I gravitated toward making these little mini Sunrise blocks, because it’s such a great project for using up scraps. Totally in the mood to dive right in, I didn’t even grab for anything specific, but instead tried to work with what was sitting on the cutting table from some recent projects.

    Those blocks are really pretty, as usual I love your colour choices! I have had a creative block of late…I’m here looking for inspiration 🙂

      Thanks, Mandy! If you’ve got a block, looking at pics is a great idea! I also like just jumping into my scraps, because you can usually get on a role if you just start.

    I am feeling your post title. I have wanted to do just that all weekend, but instead have filled my time with painting the house and writing lesson plans. Hopefully a week day evening will allow me to work on some stripe fabric blocks or finishing up some hand quilting!

    Your mini blocks are very nice. Work those scraps!
