Well, I did put aside the Carolina Christmas Mystery Quilt on Saturday because I was ahead of schedule and wasn’t planning on getting rolling on the Poinsettia Blocks until today, but something entirely unexpected happened. I just couldn’t pull myself away from the sewing room these last few days!
It was like going through a detox. I still needed a fix. And I just needed to burn off some crazy sewing stress.
Maybe you get like this too, I don’t know, but after a bout of putting together perfectly lined up 2-1/2″ squares over and over again it begins to feel like a white knuckle ride. A little less perfection is in order. So I putzed around with a few piles of scrap.
Nothing like seeing the Bernina 170 blaze full speed through some scrap to set the spirits free.

Okay…that’s one pile.
And then turn this:
Into these lovelies:
I don’t know what I’m going to do with these yet but it just felt good to get some of these leftovers used up.
Back to our regularly scheduled program.
