What I’m Working On…

I have several deadlines that I am racing to meet….my Moda Bake Shop quilt top and back are together- now to find some time to quilt them.  I also have a wedding quilt that needs to get done.  Here’s how far and am on the wedding quilt…

I have the borders pieced together too.  I got this far after just sewing on Saturday.  But…that’s as far as I will be for a bit.  Notice those two blank spots along the bottom.  UGH!  I cut two layer cake square wrong and I have no extra fabric and NOTHING that matches even remotely close in my stash.  After debating about what to do, I finally started searching on line.  I can’t ever remember what fabric line this was…something Fig Tree so I started searching.  Cabbage Rose has one piece that I think will work so I ordered it quick and hopefully it will be here by Wednesday or so.  I need the quilt for a wedding on the 16th so I am starting to press my luck but my time is still manageable if that piece of fabric will work.

The quilt is Nice Day from Schnibbles Times Two: Quilts from 5″ or 10″ Squares (That Patchwork Place).  The top will all be made with two layer cakes and 5/8 yard fabric.  I will definitely think of making another one of these quilts when I have another wedding.  It is coming together really quick and easy…yet it looks good too.

I am off to go look if I have something that will work for backing.  The quilt is 78″ x 78″ right now.  I’d like it a little bigger like something over 80″ square so I am going to tweak with the borders a little bit.  I am not sure quilt how…so we’ll see.

  1. I think the fabric is Aster Manor… I have a fat quarter set that I’ve cut into and could cut a couple squares of…let me know and I could send them to you?

  2. Good morning Jo,
    That looks like Aster Manor by 3 Sisters. If what you purchased doesn’t match. I have yardage to match your 2 pinks in your quilt, I will overnight them to you.
    The quilt is beautiful!

  3. Oh, your quilt is looking great. Can’t wait to see the finished product. Hope you find the fabric you need to finish the job. Happy Monday!
