Baby Steps 101

1. Take on a challenge from Linda to get off my duff and piece the quilt shown.
2. Find the unused box of 4-inch squares from Y2K and start pairing them up.  See that Cup-a-Soup box?  Chock full of squares cut from every fabric the shop bought that year.

3. Unhook the laptop from the display and make room to sew.

4. Dig out the sewing machine and dust it off!

5. Find that DVD of Mad Men that needs watched and returned. 
6. Start sewing.  

7. Decide that you can't hear the storyline and switch to music instead.
8. Put the DVD back in while you square up.
9. Trim the squares because they really aren't all 4 inches after all. Or square for that matter.
 9.  Rinse and repeat.
10.  Delight in the small things.

Congratulations on the progress you've made. The quilt will be finished before you know it.

WOOHOO! Wow, you have a very big stack there to work with! Good on you, Sheila.

I got backed up a day but I will get going on my pile tomorrow----right after I get an idea of just how many pairs we need to do a quilt as shown. Or did you already do the math?? It will be fine if I go over as I will have the starts of another.
