Do you ever feel a little "lost" after finishing a big project? That's what this week has been like since finishing the 2 Grandmother's Choice quilt tops. I call it PPD (post-project disorganization). It was such a mad dash to get them done for a self-imposed deadline that once it was done I had no idea what to do next...other than clean up the mess from those 2 quilts.
It was a good time to work on some donation blocks to get myself focused again.
We do a block drive every month at Country School Quilters and the August block is Courthouse Steps. Becky cut out kits from a stash of Barbara Brackman's repro fabrics (the 2 on the left) and then asked us to make additional blocks in any combination of light and dark fabrics. Check this task off the list.
I also made some blocks for Alycia's Big Block Blowout. Since my stash of patriotic fabrics is really low I decided to make the blue and yellow blocks. Each block has 6 fabrics so I stacked them alternating blue and yellow and cut out all of the pieces at once. Next I shuffled the stacks and an hour later these were all done. I'll mail them to Alycia in October when I send her my next shipment of QOV quilts.
I haven't taken one stitch on Willie but I did a lot of this yesterday. That means there's going to be a lot of ironing tomorrow. I'm slowly coming out of my PPD.
