Sew-it....today

Hello my friends.  It has been too long since my last post.  I've been busy working on other areas of my life but I'm really missing quilting projects.  I'm excited today to tell you my picnic scrap quilt is featured in the latest Sew-it... magazine.
Issue 10
It is fun to have my quilt featured on the cover.  This is a great scrap project or a leaders and enders project. My friend Glenna is also featured in the magazine.
It is nice to have a quilt to pack for a trip, picnic, or dress a table for a barbecue.   This quilt was  a free tutorial on my blog.  
I really like to keep my scraps down to 2.5" and 4.5" pieces.  They seem like the most manageable sizes for me.
This quilt would make a great summer project along with several others featured in the June issue of Sew-it....  It is quick and fun to sew.  It's also a favorite quilt of mine to use because I get to visit all my lovely fabrics that were used in past projects.

I really gotta get back to sewing.

I'm sorry, but I had to chuckle when I read the first two lines of your post. It sounded like an AA confession or something. Congratulations on the magazine feature! Very well deserved -- I love your picnic quilt! I hope you're slowly getting better -- how are things???
