sewing day

I got a lot of sewing in today and am having camera issues, so I can't post pics until later. I made the first 6 blocks for my husband's grandma's quilt, made from Grandpa's shirts. He just passed away this March. I'm sort of using the Happy Hour pattern as inspiration (saw it on Crazy Mom Quilts), and making up 12" blocks. They are in blues, greens, and dark reds, mostly plaids.

And I decided to start making some wonky scrappy log cabin blocks, inspired by Krom Mama. I even tried taking a picture of these with my phone but it has no flash and the picture was horrible. I'm feeling like my wonkiness is a little too wonky but I'll get better at it I'm sure.

It was nice to have a day where I had the energy to do this again. Hopefully I'll be able to get pictures up tomorrow.

Can't wait to see your wonky blocks. That is so cool that you're making a quilt from your grandfather's shirts. Again, could you get that camera working, please. lol
