It seems that world has gone topsy-turvy! Many quilters are delighted by the shelter in place orders – the government is telling us to stay home and sew. I can do that!!
In these uncertain times, we are trying to navigate the new normal. Families have to adjust to home schooling routines and work-from-home guidelines. Whatever your reality, it takes time to adjust. I hope I can add a little bit of colorful quilting inspiration to help you navigate the next two weeks.
Sew some classic quilt blocks! One of my favorites is a log cabin. You can read more in this post.

Stay Home and Sew!
I hope you tune in and meet some new friends. Tell me what you are working on these days. I am finding it hard to settle on one project so I typically bounce between free motion quilting on my longarm and piecing blocks.
