I have a Brain-Free Sewing Zone.
This is a place I go when I’m too tired to be really creative and I don’t want to make any big decisions. I created it because I don’t want to waste precious sewing time, but sometimes I just don’t have the energy to tackle something more ambitious.
If I’m really tired, but I want to sew, I go to the Zone and can do whatever is there without really thinking. It’s pure quilty escapist bliss!
I always have something available and sitting out for the Brain-Free Sewing Zone. Recently it’s been the patches to make 4″ Little Windmill blocks. They are 1.5″ x 2.5″. Each block takes 4 patches of Color #1 and 4 patches of Color #2.
Each #1 is sewn to a #2.
The pairs are joined into sections.
The sections are joined to complete the block.
So easy—Brain-Free Sewing! For more on how I make and use these blocks, please see this related post.
Do you have any Brain-Free activities accomplished in your sewing space? Whether yes or no, leave a comment by noon Monday, Dec. 6 and I’ll give a pile of 1.5″ x 2.5″ patches to a random winner. The winner is Deb who left comment #26. Congratulations! Thanks to everyone for sharing their own Brain-Free ideas.
