With all the tragedy of the Victorian bushfires on the news here, it has been really hard to concentrate on anything in the sewing room. Sewing just seems so unimportant. But yesterday I really needed a diversion, and it had to be something mindless.
A while back I started making up a Bricks and Stepping Stones quilt from our dear Bonnie's website. I'd made up all the individual matchstick units and put them aside for a rainy day.
Yesterday I decided I'd start pairing up the units and even sewed a couple of rows together. I've laid some of my units out to show you, and the rest are all in the container in the background. There are so many scrappy fabrics in the makings of this quilt - some from favourite quilts, favourite friends, and some I can't even imagine how they came to be with me. I guess it's like a little trip down memory lane. Just what I needed really.
