Embracing Mindlessness

August 2, 2017

Getting back into a creative groove after even a short interruption can be discouraging. While trying to get into a mindful frame, in my head I told myself to be mindless. Yeah, I was that tired. Still, it did lead to an epiphany: if you can’t be creative, you can be tidy. So I embraced my mindlessness and sewed binding on three quilts.

This is the quilt with the coppery binding. Here is a detail.

This is another baby quilt using the same pattern, Twist and Turn.

It goes together quickly, uses up scraps, and has no corners to match. The perfect pattern.

This baby quilt used some orphaned blocks and a novelty print of sea otters. I had to redo some of the quilting because the tension was off, but as it happens picking out stitching is an ideal task when your brain isn’t working well anyway.

Luck and wisdom!
