    Can not get sewing lately -so I have been

    cleaning and sorting fabric. Everything that was less than 2 yds is now cut into 2.5 inch strips.That way I can make log cabin blocks when I get my mojo back.

    I liked seeing the strips stacked up and ready to be used in a project. It inspires me to stack my strips. By stacking them I will be getting ready to make a log cabin when the inspiration hits me---usually in the middle of the night when I have so many other projects going at the same time, and I am not particularly wanting to be in the design mode --- the stacked strips was just totally inspirational.....I plan to do this during times when I am stuck in a no-sewing mode, too, and yet I am wanting to be handling "color" and "patterns" and "textiles"..... this was a good post!!

    Being skinny isn't easy, so I gave up and opted for being sexy instead. (aunty acid)

    The important thing is you are still thinking of the quilting process and have your hands on the fabric. Time well spent!

    Love making log cabins. Did that when recovering from shoulder surgery. Made over 90 very, very, large squares, and pull them out once in a while and make lap quilts out of four or six of them.

    Your strips look great and should tickle your mojo into gear!

    Darn! You have done the hard part. I always put off the cutting, but can sew for hours.

    That is a great idea of pre cutting your scraps so they are ready for when the mood hits to use them. I may do that with the less than fat quarters that I have left over from many projects.
    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place. We are nearing closer to the End Times.

    I'm impressed! I wish I was a tenth that organized! Here's hoping you get your groove back super soon so we can start seeing more of your fabulous work! Until then, you go, girl (with the cutting & sorting)!!!

    I second that! I just now am getting my "itch" back. This was the longest I'd gone without sewing (tho it didn't seem to slow down my fabric purchases... LOL!) so I know where you're coming from. I'll send good, quilty thoughts your way!

    Yup It took me 3 months to iron & cut strips from my stash for the quiltville method. 3 tubs full will probably make 25 quilts!

    Sometimes you just have to sit in a chair and jog in order to get anywhere.
