And so we are well into February, the kids are back at school and my time is a little more my own again. I am keen to get back into some sewing. I was looking for something easy and quick to get me back in the groove.
My scrap basket was overflowing, with lots of surplus jelly roll strips from previous projects (like this one and this one).
I decided to make 'Candy Coated' by Amanda Jean @ Crazy Mum Quilts. The pattern is in her book 'Sunday Morning Quilts' (co-written with Cheryl Arkison).
It is a really easy project, not requiring too much thought in terms of fabric placement or colour - the things that usually slow me down!
I can spend 10 minutes on it here or there and it is coming together nicely. It feels good to be using up fabric scraps and to be dusting off the machine!
