Chain Piecing

Today I was in a brainless mode.
Just didn't want to do anything today that meant I have to think or figure out.

It didn't matter what, example is for gardening it was just some weeding, don't have to think. I just went through the motion and daydreamed.

So I worked on the leader and ender project.

I had started this over a year ago, I had seen a picture on Pintrest and look furiously for the pattern, I wanted to make it.
The only pattern per say was for a small block

Similar to what I've done here

Needed Update:
Roxanne left a comment saying she had found the pattern, located at Temecula Quilt Company  This is a link to theirs.

I wish I had found it before I started, would helped.
I must of seen another or didn't quite remember it right.
because my version is slightly different.

I tried to find it again to give a link but just now couldn't locate it. I usually pin the info on my quilt board but I didn't 
I think it was a pillow pattern I saw.
but the picture I saw was a quilt the first time.
Anyway on to brainless sewing.

I chain piece around a hundred nine patches

I had up to today these completed 

Once I was done doing brainless sewing it was on to mindless pressing.
Did I tell you about my cordless iron I purchase last year. I love it.
Its made by Panasonic 

Whats next is to do the trimming

The squares in up being 1"

Okay this is too much thinking...........

  1. I loved the quilting you settled on for your Rocky RoAd quilt. This is looking great too and what a fun and pretty way to use up scraps.

    1. thank you, and using the sulky thread is sure making a difference.

  2. Bring mindless and not having to think is great at times......

  3. so many do not pin quilt patterns or photos to pinterest properly with a link back to where they found it. It is a pity really as if we see a pattern we like a lot of us end up drawing it up ourselves and the original never gets the credit or we end up getting a nasty comment from someone saying we stole their pattern.

    1. I know what you mean, I realize how hard it is for designers to make a living from designing. If anyone does know where this pattern came from I will gladly give credit where credit is due.

  4. That's a lot of auto-pilot stitching! Sometimes you just need that meditative project work.

  5. that is a lotta nine patches! ;000
    this will be very pretty--I like the setting a lot hugs, Julierose

  6. It is a lot of nine patches, with myself trying to make a bigger quilt I'm not sure how many, I think I figured around 1,100

  7. The joy of a cordless iron, so much easier for craft projects.

  8. I think that is a free pattern from TemeculaQuiltCo.com
    I’ve been wanting to make one too!

    1. Thank you, I put a link to what you sent. Wish I had found it before I started. Maybe this will help others


Welcome friends to share a thought, I enjoy reading them and will try my best to reply back by email most of the time. But if you do not hear back it's because you are a no-reply blogger.
