I have been cleaning, and cleaning, and cleaning out my work space. I think everyone finally reaches a point when enough is enough this stuff has got to go! I am never going to use it! That is the point I was at.
I have been ruthless in my throw away and give away piles. Oh, it feels so so good:)! If the fabric or project didn’t bring me joy, it was thrown out. If the project has been sitting in the closet, box, or cabinet unfinished, it got finished. Wow! What a lot I have accomplished!
Among my cleaning adventures I found these beautiful orphan nine patch blocks that my friend gave to me years ago because she was doing some cleaning of her own. I had forgotten all about them. How lucky! It was a perfect time to find them again because I have a baby shower for my cute niece this weekend and these blocks sewed up into a beautiful quilt for her little one. Yea!I added the spacer blocks, quilted it with a fun loopy stitch and bound it with a lovely soft yellow. Adorable!
I won’t bore you with all of my fun, time capsule finds amidst the sea of old treasures, but I will share one more fun little memory Git-R done quilt.
Years ago, my niece wanted to learn to sew and started a Disappearing Nine Patch then she promptly left and forgot about it. I have had the started blocks tucked inside a cabinet waiting, and waiting ….for what? She has long since moved away and this quilt has been taking up space. Time to Git-r done!!
All done! And so so easy:). I just love how a disappearing nine patch looks so hard, but is really very easy!I only had nine large finished blocks when I was done, so I added a matching border on two sides from some matching scraps to lengthen it up a bit. Yea! More scraps have found a home:)!
I will quilt this up and put it in my wedding quilt closet waiting for the day when my niece gets married. She will love it!
I hope you have a Git-R Done day sometime in the near future. It feels SWEET!
