A break from the break

I couldn’t stay away! I’ve been having fun on Instagram and Facebook, but I miss the blog. Sometimes you need a few more words to go with the pics.

I took an afternoon off to do some simple sewing. It feels like I’ve been weighed down by some unfinished projects and self-imposed expectations about starting a new quilt project. I needed something fresh and quick to get me going.

Inspired by Lorna’s tutorial for bindingless quilted placemats I took one of Lori Holt’s Modern Mini panels and turned out 2 simple placemats in short order. As Erin said this morning when she saw my project, I got my craft on!

 

I can use a different coordinating print on the back of each — I need a set of at least six.

Here are the quilted placemats that have been waiting about 2 years for a binding … I think at this point I’ve lost interest. How do you know when it’s time to let go of your UFO and move on to something else?
