New Project!

It is hard for me sometimes to complete quilts I really don't particularly like----is it for you? But, I am pushing on!!!! I am almost finish quilting "the" quilt but am working on other projects at the same time. Above is the latest quilt. It is a free pattern from the Moda Bake Shop and uses jelly rolls. I am focused on using fabric I already have in my stash (how else can I honestly purchase more). I am making it larger, and currently have a little over 200 strips cut (counting the ones above). As I mentioned in an earlier post, the jelly roll is "Oz" which is perfect for such a modern quilt. I usually like to make blocks as I cut---keeps up my momentum when I can see progress, but I am going to need to cut all the strips first to make sure I have a good mix of prints. I just had to though make these blocks so when I get bored of sewing and cutting strips, I can look up and see what "awaits" once I get done. I have about 8 more strips left to sew together and cut so the end is in sight and I can start putting everything together. You can't see it very well, but the strips are sewn to white Kona.

I should be finished with quilting today, and will load the next quilt on. I have actually quite a few tops that need to be quilted---4---and 4 that need binding (yuk), so I have lots of work to do. Good thing I can "multi-task" :c)!

Tomorrow is Guild day and I have lots to sew --- for sure. I just have to figure which UFO to bring :c). I have purchased a neat little extension table for my Featherweight! I will try to get pictures tomorrow, but the table will make it so much easier to work on larger projects. I might even be able to take a quilt with me and put on binding.

More pics to follow----have a great Friday!

  1. Which pattern on Moda's site is this one? Can't figure it out--but then that could just be me! I definitely want to see a pic of the extension table. It might have to be a must buy for my FW so Makayla can use it.
    Great fabric strips, BTW. Not long now to April! LOL
