Two things motivate me. Ideas, especially brand new ones are top of the list! So first I dug out a few fabrics to start a new project. At least it was on my to-do list so technically it isn't really a N E W project.
And cleaning. I suspect cleaning is more related to stalling but it does work to get me back into the creative mode. So I got my vacuum running to make music and we hummed along as I thought about my fabric selection.
The scrappy trip block can be found on the Quiltville site and I will look to see if there is a better one later as it tells how to press the initial strips but I'm not sure how to press the finished blocks.
These are possibilities as I want a light block with two dark values touching. So that will take some puzzling out.
I made four blocks and they give me a feel as to what direction I need to be heading.
There are lots of seams to match and I remembered that Nina has a dual feed function and that is very helpful. I think I will really enjoy making these. It feels good to be piecing patchwork again!
Maybe I can find some more examples on The Needle and Thread Network!
