Multi-tasking My Quilting Projects
But, I only multi-task because I forget what I was just doing...
Therefore, its critically important to have a project in progress no matter where I look. That way I don't have to think, I can just do ;)
I have been on a self-proposed Virtual Quilting Bee For Charity all week long. Sewing for others gives me a sense of purpose and a dedication to a daily form of spiritual practice. After I finish daily housekeeping chores, water my garden, and tend to my cats, I quilt. Each day, almost every day, I quilt and almost always for charity. When I'm not quilting, I'm sewing, and when I'm not sewing...I'm quilting.
These are the four charity quilts I am currently working on all at once. Until I get them done, there'll not be much walking going on here! Well, except for the cats, who hop and flop from one quilt to another!
Each of these four are entirely made of "Frugal Friday finds"...scraps from the scrap bin and lots and lots of leftover orphan blocks. Not one strip was cut up on purpose from whole pieces... except for borders and backings of course...and often those are scrap pieced out of larger scraps, as well.
If you've been working on projects that I might like to see, leave me a link (make one at bottom of post or cut and past this and add it to your next post in your own blog Virtual Quilting Bee For Charity so I can visit your blog and be inspired by all that you do, as well!
Happy Frugal Friday from my scrap bin to yours!
