I know it doesn’t look like it, but I swear, I’m still around!
I’ve completed 5 quilt tops since my last post. FIVE! That’s absolutely crazy for me!
1 – Terry Atkinson’s Fire Escape in Kate Spain’s Joy – Christmas 2013 gift
2 – Terry Atkinson’s Yellow Brick Road in assorted Project Linus prints for my P.L. donation quilt.
3 & 4 – Cluck Cluck Sew’s Road Trip in a multitude of grey/pink/white girly prints. I did 15 rows instead of 10 rows so they could be grown in to!
5 – Valori Wells’ Lion Around in Riley Blake’s Zoofari.
Oh yeah, and my first-ever taggie!
The best part? I did 2-4 in a weekend. I went to a quilt retreat hosted by a (not so) LQS Calico Hutch for a 3-day weekend in early February. I had all of my fabrics for these projects cut, and most of the blocks assembled for Linus. I laid it out and completed the quilt top on Friday evening.
Here are the beginnings of 1 of the Road Trip quilts…
I completed the tops for 3 & 4 on Saturday & Sunday. I added first initials in applique to both of them and had some thread issues along the way, so they didn’t come together as quickly as I had hoped.
I can’t post pics just yet of most of these because they’re gifts, but I will soon, I promise!
February was a great top-completing month for me, and I’m hoping March is a great quilt-finishing month for me. I’ve got 2 dates on the calendar to rent the long arm, so I’m hoping to bust out 3-4 quilts over those 2 days. We’ll see how it goes…
