Distraction Sewing

Sometimes, I need a simple sewing project to work on, whether I’m procrastinating working on homework or just feeling anxious and need a distraction.

For each of these projects, I started out with a scrap piece from a Square Dance Panel, and added scraps of solid strips to the sides to simply frame them or make a log cabin block.

It was relaxing to start with a small piece and challenge myself to keep adding to it without a plan.

I haven’t decided yet what I’m going to do with these blocks, maybe just a fun set of mini quilts for our end tables or mug rugs.

I love these panels, and I especially love to imagine what they would look like as a doodle page in a sketchbook. That’s next on my list of distractions.

  4. These are awesome Terri! I should have got a square dance panel but for some reason didn’t. I can’t wait to see what you make with these, whatever you decide it will look great. 🙂

  5. I really, really like these. They are very pretty. I am going to Florida in a couple of weeks & I am going to share your blog with my friends who I am sure will love it too! 🙂

  6. Terri, I love what you did with the panel pieces. It gave the panel a whole new look. It’s good sometimes to get away from homework.
