The current link up for the Jelly Roll Waves Quilt along is for sharing 1/2 the blocks for the quilt. Here are mine. I'm making the smaller lap sized quilt which has 5 vertical rows, so the half way point would be 2 1/2 rows. It's not so easy to see in this photo but what I have completed here is three rows. So I am ahead of schedule. Yay!
When I decided to participate the Jelly Roll Waves QAL with Myra of Busy Hands Quilts, I thought I might be just a little bit crazy. I won't go into details here, but there have been some ongoing stressors in my life and it has recently been suggested to me that I do less. So here I was taking on more.
But you know what, it turned out to be a good thing. This is a pretty easy project and I can just sew along without much thought, unlike my other sew along, the 2019 summer sampler which I have set aside for the time being. There, taking on something easy led me to let go of something a little more time consuming. Not that I've totally given up on the sampler. I'll be cutting my work hours to two days a week in the fall so I can go back to the sampler then. I'm not saying I won't do the odd block here and there. In the mean time I'll keep my sewing simple for the summer. I'm linking this post with the Jelly Roll Waves linkup .
