Have you ever felt a bit out of sorts and then realized its already Monday or Tuesday and you haven't started a new quilt that week? So here is my cure for the "blues." I'm making Bonnie Hunter's Idaho Square Dance, the quilt featured on the cover of her book Addicted to Scraps. It's a wonderful combination of log cabin and four patch blocks.
In between sewing the log cabin blocks, I'm sewing "fabric debri" catchers. Those are the bits of feathers from making chickens. Or left over oddments that are too small for string quilts. In my house, they are the bits that the cats are constantly knocking from the cutting table to the floor. This means I can pretend I'm cleaning house too.
