Sewing up a storm

I am in a sewing zone.  I am having a ball.   I am putting my frustration and impatience with our repairs into sewing.  I made these squares on Friday and loved them. 

Then on Saturday afternoon on Pinterest I found this quilt and was totally fascinated.  I played around and found that I could order a kit or a pattern.  I have only used one pattern in my quilting career.  I honestly don't know how I feel about a pattern or about selling a pattern.  I want what I make to be mine.   I respect those who have the ability to put together a pattern and/or a kit but it is just not me.  I find the quilting community to be so eager to share with one another. 


 After seeing this quilt I went back and took all my 9 patches apart.  Yes I took them all apart and redesigned what I was doing.

Here are a couple of combinations.  It is so much fun to put these squares together in different ways. I am almost confused.  

I am thinking this will be a throw for the back of my new sofa. 

And of course I could not resist a wonky star.  This will most likely become a pillow.

We rode home on Sunday to look at our house.  I am not sure that was a good idea.  It is really strange to think of someone else in your house all the time moving and rearranging stuff. 

Hopefully we are on the downslope.
