Today is Not Yesterday

After the perpetual disaster that was yesterday, coupled with today's migraine, I tossed aside everything that *has* to be done and went into my sewing room to play.

I started with a pile of leftover drunkard's path pieces from my Quilter's Mixology Quilt and a stack of 12.5" sqaures.

And started to arrange the pieces on the background squares.

 I pinned them in place, then used rainbow variegated thread to raw edge applique. Because I love variegated threads and rainbow colors. It makes me happy.

Presto-chango, half an hour later I had a raw edge applique block in beautiful colors.

These probably could have benefited from some stabilizer but What. Ever. This was fun to do and I didn't worry about getting everything lined up or exactly centered. *Smashes my OCD into silence*

Ideally, I'd like to get twelve blocks and make a 3x4 quilt but I have to finish cutting out the Quilter's Mixology quilt to see what I have available in leftovers.

Linking up to Design Wall Monday


  1. Me likey. Glad things are working out better. Life seems to go much more smoothly when we are doing what we love and not worrying about it. :)

    1. Haha, true. Too bad so much is spent doing things like.. work.. ugh.

  2. What fun! I love the design of the two blocks on the left. Yay for defeating the OCD monster!
