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.

    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?

    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!
