I will probably never in my life manage to piece a quilt top such that the corners all line up. Oh well.
I also found five blocks leftover from a blue/yellow/green scrap quilt I made
in May a year ago (and STILL haven’t quilted!). I had evidently
miscalculated and wound up with extra blocks. I decided to sew four
together in a square and turn the fifth into a pillow. All doll-sized,
of course. It too is just pieced, layered and pinned, but I can hand-quilt it when I get tired of doing the first one. The pillow just needs to be stuffed.

Slowly I am finishing up leftover projects! A few years ago a friend and I thought up a store we could do called “The Best of Intentions” in which we would finish other people’s projects that they had gotten thoroughly sick of. I still think that’s a good idea. Yesterday I finished ripping seams and turning a dress into a skirt for the taller girls and hemmed a skirt I made for myself a year ago. It’s good to be clearing it all out.
