Easing Back In & Three Creative Studios BOM


This is the third block I've completed in Three Creative Studios BOM series. I started this project about a year and a half ago and as always must've gotten sidetracked by the tyranny of the urgent.

A month or so ago when we were going to my parents in North Dakota for a few days, I was looking for a project to take along.  I found all the HST for this block in a zip-loc bag ready to be trimmed...perfect.  I usually don't have time during waking hours to sew on my mom's machine when we are there, but I always think small trimming and cutting projects are perfect for after the kids go to bed.  I sewed this up when we came back and finally ironed it the other day. Though it is an older project, the instructions are still available for all the blocks on the Three Creative Studios' site.  Here are all three blocks together...

    

(The fabric is Objects of Desire by Sandy Gervais.)

I don't know why, but when I haven't sewn for a while, I always feel the need for a massive cleaning and reorganization so I hope to finish that this weekend. I can't believe summer is over and school starts here in just two days.  So much of our summer was spent on organized activities: baseball, camp at the science museum, golf camp, vacation bible school, etc... and the last few weeks of hanging out has been busy with school preparations and not as relaxing as hoped. We do have many fun memories though, and each year you do learn new tweeks/plans to try for your schedule the following summer.

Hope you all are having a great holiday weekend!

Very pretty blocks! Thank you for the link to the tutorials.

I'm the same way. Getting into my hobby space and organizing generally re-inspires me. I see what good things I have in there! I hope your sewing mojo returns soon!

Love those blocks Karen! Needing organization here too, but I need to find a storage unit to put things in. My fabric is spread throughout the house.

Love your quilt blocks and the fabric is so cute. It's fun seeing different fabrics made up into quilts. I usually like so much more when I see all the possibilities for them!
