It's been a busy week here in my sewing room!
Who knew I'd be able to pull off a quilt top
AND a backing in one week????
It's a very improvisational quilt.....
so that helps me save some time.
When I quilt like this I do MINIMAL trimming and measuring.
I was really dragging my feet about this one.
The recipient wanted a purple and black quilt.
Those colors are NOT. me.
I pieced some scraps together HOPING to be inspired...
but I wasn't.
Eventually I took out some fabric and began making those big tall
O.k. NOW we were getting somewhere.
I DO love what happened.
I was even able to use the pieced blocks in the back!!!
and I LOVE that TOO!!!!
This week...If I'm lucky.... I'll get going and make a
quilt SANDWICH and QUILT something!!
I have enough quilt TOPS!!
Do you take a DEEP breath before that step??
I included a picture with my husband's garden in the background.
Isn't it wonderful???
FRESH stuff here ALL the time.
The trick is USING it up!!!
Now it's YOUR turn.
What are YOU making this week???
