The Week of Non-Productivity

Not much quilting in this house the past week.  I just wasn't feeling it, so I took a break.  I figured the fabric and WIP's wouldn't go bad and would be waiting for me when I was ready.  Instead, I read, watched some TV, maybe had a nap or two, some Girl Guide stuff....it didn't take long for the week to go by.

And back in the sewing room tonight finishing the piecing on the Gray Square Scramble pattern.

Gray Square Scramble

I am quite pleased with the results.  It finishes 55 x 72 inches.  I would make this pattern again.  I'm undecided on how to quilt it.  Luckily, Maritime Modern Quilt Guild meets on Thursday, so I'll get some advice.

All my WIP's are now finished quilt tops waiting to be quilted -- my least favourite part of the process.  So it's time to buckle down and start quilting.  Other than a few skirts for my goddaughter and maybe a few fabric baskets, I will not be starting any new quilts until I get this tops quilted.

What are you excited about this week?  Any new projects you want to start?


  1. The Gray Square Scramble looks really good! Have we really not sewn together in so long that I haven't seen this in person at some stage? :)

  2. This is looking great Anja! Sometimes you just need a break. No problemo! My breaks are usually followed by intense sew binges :)

  3. This is a gorgeous quilt and, as always, I adore your colour decisions.
