A Return to Free-Wheeling?

A single block from the Free-Wheeling Single Girl quilt pattern  - for the plaid loving male in my household.

 Ten years ago, I sewed my first version of Denyse Schmidt's Free-Wheeling Single Girl pattern.  It was a baby quilt in pretty pinks. I was a bit put off by thoughts of all the work involved in tracing the pattern pieces onto template material, but I came up with an easier solution. I discovered that I could use freezer paper instead, which I could then press onto my fabric scraps for easy, accurate cutting (check out my previous post here).

Just sew

A scrappy version using my pattern, Tiny Terrific Tulips

Our lifestyle of renting furnished, short term homes continues.  This means for several years now, we have been moving twice a year (spring and autumn), with the shorter being the spring/summer stay.  We're already one month into this five month rental term and I admit to seriously considering not moving any of my sewing into this home.

It started with a 9 patch


I really couldn't help it.  That parcel of scrap fabrics from Art Gallery Fabrics was just too irresistible.
