I have about a bajillion of these Frugal Blocks from Quilter’s Cache. The Frugal Block is one of my favorite quilt blocks because it lends itself so well to chain piecing. It’s also a project that lends itself well to small bursts of time. I seem to have more small bursts of time than large expanses of time, so as a consequence, I have a bunch of these blocks…like hundreds of them…enough to make a king sized quilt with a bunch left over. But what really, really, scares me is the idea of quilting a king sized quilt or the expense of having one long arm quilted for me.
A few blog readers have mentioned recently that one of the things they enjoy about the blog is seeing and hearing about what inspires me…and then seeing how the inspiration turns into finished projects. Given this, I thought it might be fun to share more of what inspires me…what kicks off the various projects that I do.
