A mini finish: A “little” wonky

tgiff-button-blog

Hey! Guess what? It’s “Thank Goodness I’m Finished Friday” and I’m hosting. I apologize to all of you on the other side of the world. It’s still breakfast time year, but I know it’s mid-afternoon over there already.

I really am thankful that I have finished this one little thing today considering the state of my sewing room and the fact that I finally got my sewing machine out last night for the first time in over a week. I’m hoping my in-progress Sewing Room Clean Up will unearth the inspiration that has been difficult to find lately. (It’s a Sewing Room Clean Up ALONG, by the way, so if your space needs some tidying, please join me!)

I’m pleased with this scrappy little wonky diamonds mini. I am working on a larger scale project with this design, so this one was a test run of sorts, to see how it would all come together.

I free motion quilted this using the “dogwood” patten I saw on Oh, Fransson!. It was really perfect for this project since it’s already in a 2-inch grid. No need to even mark.

You can see it better on the back. It’s a little wobbly in place, but for my first attempt, I LOVE it. Now, to actually get it hung on my wall …

    Way to go, Em! I love it! There are a few things that I find keep my sew-jo going — doing a bit of sewing every day (if I’m not in the mood to think much, I just find busy work – organizing, sewing up scraps, tackling part of a wip, doing a small, easily-finished project like a mug rug). Often seeing a little bit of progress on a project is enough to get me excited about continuing. My biggest block came when I felt I had to be working on a project(s) that had stalled. When I let go and said that I’m going to work on what I feel like working on regardless of what I “should” be working on, then things got rolling again. Hope this helps and good luck!
