The transition from one month to the next always has a sense of 'hurry up and wait' about it. Invariably I have month-end deadlines to meet, yet there's the unknowns of a fresh new month. It's often an energizing time for me, how about you?
The most sewing fun I've had for a while was happening upon Crosscut blocks, first kind of randomly for a swap project, and then with complete intention with a small Crosscut quilt, complete with quilting binding. Oh yeah.
Finally, while researching for this issue, I found I've made no less than seven quilts using slice-and-insert. See them and a collection of others on my slice-and-insert pinboard.
P.S. Just a couple of months ago, Tara Curtis introduced herself to me at a guild meeting. Then at Sew and Tell that night, she shared a basket she'd made that included some modern fabric weaving, a technique she developed. I've since seen her signature 'triaxial weave' projects all over blogland. If you don't know what I'm talking about, check out her Ig feed [t_jaye] or her website and be amazed!
