Sometimes.......

Sometimes we just need to sew, sew, sew......and make something simple and easy.  That's what I did with a pack of  "It's a Hoot" Charm Squares from Moda.

The squares in the rows are off-set every other row.




Yes, I used my GO cutter to cut all the white 2 1/2" strips.


What do you do when you just want to sew, sew sew and don't want to make anything complicated??

Thanks for visiting my blog.

  1. Great design! I like to take a pile of leftover fabrics from a quilt, and just cut them to as many of the same size rectangles or squares as I can, and make a small doll quilt or security blanket. And I love getting rid of scraps that way too, especially coordinating ones.

  3. That is so cute! I think I got that charm pack for Christmas. Now I have inspiration to use it! :) What I make when I want to sew, but not make anything too complicated, is usually a pillowcase or two.

  9. What fun! Sometimes I have to give myself a shake, when I feel like I'm burning out. I get caught up in doing complicated projects that take too long, and just need a break to do something quick and fun. I make pot holders. :P

  10. LOVE this! It must be a big one, using 5" squares! I usually revert to the instant gratification of a rag quilt when I need the fix for sewn & done!
