What I’m working on….

Happy Memorial Day!!
I am STILL sewing on this fat quarter pack…you gotta know when a fat quarter pack comes into play, it’s going to be a big quilt.

Here’s a little peek….


The rest is sewn into blocks.  Hopefully progress will be made on this over the weekend but then I have to stop that and finish up my blocks for the Quilt Square Quilt Along.  It seems there is always something to be sewing for, but that is a good thing.  I actually look for reasons to sew.

I also pulled out some fabric for the next baby quilt.  Rumor has it that it’s a boy…


I am thinking it’s going to be a smaller version of the quilt on the front cover of this magazine.  I will, of course, do mine in shirts.  I think I am going to pick darker colors than are shown.  Babies are spitting up and such…darker colors might just be a bit better.  It looks like it would be easy…that is a good thing.

To see what others are working on, check out Patchwork Times.

Today is the last day to sign up for the giveaways…a $40 gift certificate from Cabbage Rose Quilting and Fabrics, one for Word Play Quilts and one for Pretty Patchwork Quilts. Good luck!  I’ll pick all the winners next Tuesday.

    Love the idea if using shirts for that quilt. I have to clean out my closet and what better way and easier way to beable to let go…and reuse.

    I really like the quilt on the front cover too. I’m saving some stripes to do it as I really like stripes, plaids and polka dots. Any of these fabrics would be good in this pattern.
    Enjoy making it and we’ll be watching to see it done.
    Have a great day.

    Hi Jo – I agree with you on the dark colours. My son has 2 dogs and bare wood floors, so I thought a pale quilt for his first baby would be a mess in no time. Decided to do a dark-ish back and mostly mid-tone colours on the front. Added some cream for lightness. Turned out to be a sensible move – they take it everywhere and throw it down for him to play on in some really inhospitable places. Designed it to be used – but whether it’ll survive to be an heirloom is another matter!
