Just Let It Be

I needed to do some reorganizing
in my sewing room
after my month long sewing marathon.

There were piles of leftovers from the 
three big projects I had worked on.
You know, a little of this and a lot of that.

I had gotten most of it put away when I spied
the pile of leftovers from the fabric line
"Little Gatherings".
It was just sitting there looking as cute as ever.

I had used them in my "Jack the Ripper" quilt.
I had started with a fat quarter of 22 different fabrics
and I still had quite a bit leftover.

I could hear a voice in my head saying 
"Just Let It Be"

"Step Away from the Fabric"

"Don't Even Think About It"

I needed to do something with these wonderful fabrics.

New Pattern:
A Little Northwinds by Primitive Gatherings.
The finished size is only 24" x 30"
so the pieces aren't very big.
Perfect for the amounts I had left.

The half square triangles finish at 1 inch and 
the block is a 4" square.
Should be cute.

No, I really didn't have any business starting
this new project.
But I just couldn't  "Let It Be".

Until Next Time-


  1. You may need an intervention so you can take a break! :-) I like the new quilt!

  2. This is going to be a treasure! Have fun in your sewing room!

  3. You don't want to fall victim to that old saying Idle Hands are the work.....heaven forbid :)

  4. Sweet pattern! Did you know that AccuQuilt (and I) have a die for triangles that finish at 1" square?

  5. Beautiful fabrics!
    Yes those sewing rooms need attention or you may not remember what color carpet is on the floor. Have fun sewing!!!!

  6. Of course you couldn't! It is going to be so adorable too!!!
