What do you do when you have an itch?
Why, you scratch it, of course.
I've had a sewing itch ever since I
got the latest copy of Quiltmania, issue 121.
What's got me so itchy?
The pattern Comfort and Joy designed by Jo Morton.

What has made the scratching so easy and pleasurable
is the fact that I had so many of her fabrics
and the border print.
It seemed the perfect pattern to use
some of these fabrics.
I even threw in one of Di Ford's new
Clotted Creams and Caramels
I jumped right in making
and then scrappy half square triangles
using the magic 8 method.
The Bloc-Loc ruler
was waiting it's turn to start
If I was a more careful stitcher, maybe I
wouldn't have to trim, but I'm not,
so a tool like the Bloc-Loc ruler is
my very good friend.
These Lady of the Lake blocks
are sweet and easy to do
if the half square triangles are the perfect size.
But, then I had to stop.
I got a little busy
with another good itch that needed to be scratched.
I had visitors over the weekend
and we needed to play.
And that required a trip to the pumpkin patch
in search of the perfect pumpkin.
Then there were these two little pumpkins
also at Nana's house.
I'm hoping it won't be too long
before I'm able to get the blocks sewn together.
You never know when I might have another itch.
Until Next Time-
