I’d rather just sew. 

This afternoon I have to go into work, so I just wanted to get a little sewing in before I go. I really do try to sew every day, even if it’s just for 10 minutes.  Today I’m working on blocks that incorporate nine patch blocks. I’m using Fig Tree & CO.’s Sweet Sixteen quilt pattern https://www.figtreequilts.com

I’m also using one of their fabric lines too. Joanna Figueroa’s fabric is traditional, yet modern. 

I like how quilters are taking old blocks and quilt patterns and reworking them to make them much easier. I remember being taught by my mom and grandmother to use sandpaper for a template and cutting out fabric with scissors. Yeah for rotary cutters!

 The block also uses a four patch. Joanna makes it easy to work with little pieces in her pattern.  

   
I got one block put together. I’m going to try to squeeze in another one before I going to work. 

Happy sewing everyone!
