I've started working on a new quilt project during Oscar's naptime. It feels pretty nice to start working on something creative again, and have a bit of time to myself. And I've been listening to a lot of npr podcasts while I sew which I'm really enjoying. I used to listen to books on tape but I find the shorter format of podcasts easier to digest at the moment, since I'm getting in a few minutes of time here and there. And the stories give me something to think about other than diapers and sleep schedules, so the brain stimulation is much appreciated. Anyways, I've started my long contemplated vintage linens quilt. I've been collecting vintage linens for quite awhile (assisted by my mother) with the idea of making a quilt. The first step was to decide which of them to use, and since I decided to make two colour log cabin blocks, what the colour pairs should be. Inspired by this oh fransson post, I cut out little squares of all the choices so I could play with them to find the best combination. So far, this is how it looks - I'm making one set of each of the blocks to see if these pairs work out and then if I like them I'll sew up all the blocks.
