Summersville Quilt Blocks


When you’re home with a newborn and a toddler, you have to get creative about your time to get crafty things done. But that room full of fabric was just taunting me! I can be disappointed that I don’t have long stretches of time to spend making things anymore, or I can take advantage of the time I have before I go back to work and chip away at things one step at a time. I might have made something more improvisational in flavor if I had more time to waste, but I wanted to make sure that I’d have something to show for my time when I was done, so I planned it out first. I had a fat 1/8th stack of this line, so I wanted to make the most of the fabric I had. I cut the fabrics in Becca’s first months in short bursts, and made the blocks one or two per day during naptime when it’s safe to plug in the iron. There are 20 12″ blocks here, ready to be sewn into a top.
