I've been quietly quilting away day by day to get everything finished for the quilt show in September. This quilt top came together and now it's ready to be quilted. What started out as pillows, ended up being a quilt with only one matching pillow. This will be a nice over-the-back-of-the-couch quilt during the Holidays on those cold winter nights at the cabin.
Here are the last two blocks.
Polka dots and plaids, what could be better?
I used 19 different plaids in this quilt! The final plaid was used in the flange around the whole quilt. I made a serious dent in my plaid stash for this quilt. Time to buy more!
This one won't make it to the quilting machine for a couple of weeks. First I have to decide what I'm going to quilt.....now that is the question.
This quilt evolved from just one pillow. I liked the block and continued making them. Before I knew it, I had an 80 x 80 inch quilt. Sometimes I just get carried away. When I first saw the Sentiments fabric by 3 Sisters, I knew exactly what I wanted to make.
Today is clean-up day in the sewing room. Time to put one project away, and turn my whole attention to Toyland. I have fabric from one end of the room to the other that needs to be picked up and put away. I find it much easier to focus. ....oh wait a minute.....I still have to make more pillows for Christmas presents. I don't think that is going to happen today folks!
