I was very pleased that I was able to sew my 3 big chunks into a finished top, complete with 2 borders.  My family let me pretty much have the whole day to myself to get it done.  So thankful for that!

However, I couldn’t be bothered to press the backing and get it assembled, so that will be a task for this weekend.  This baby has a date with the long arm on Dec 15 and I’ve finished WELL ahead this time.  I’m hoping to NOT be sewing zippers onto the back next Friday night in a mad rush to have it all ready to go!

It’s Wednesday, so I’m linking to WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced where Cindy from Hyacinth Quilt Designs is guest blogging today.  Go check it out!



About msminnesota

I'm a wife, mom of two (one blue, one pink), and I work full time. Our family loves to camp, and we're often on mini adventures during the summer. My fall/winter/spring/rainy day hobby is quilting. I started about 10 years ago, then put everything away when The Blue One was born. A few years ago a good friend decided to take up this 'hobby' and I've been back at it ever since. She's my partner in crime (A.K.A. 'the enabler'). I have no aspirations of becoming a quilt designer - I'm just not that good at geometry (I rely on my math major/computer programmer husband to help with piecing backs at times!). This little blog is my way of chronicling my quilting adventures. Occasionally I post about non-quilting things as well. Thanks for stopping by. Don't forget to say HI! IG: wannabequilter

    The name of your blog made me laugh! If you’ve made a quilt, you’re a quilter, at least by my definition. I love the colors in your current project. It looks great!

    Julie, I hope ya get this…as you commented at my blog (Val’s Quilting Studio) and you are a no-reply blogger. So to answer your flannel twister question: Yes, I used warm and natural batting for the quilt. LOVE IT!!!! 🙂

      I got it! Can’t figure out how to NOT be a no-reply blogger, despite following the instructions. I think I have different accounts set up differently and can’t figure out how to backtrack!
      I was thinking you probably don’t even need batting, but warm & natural is light, so I’m guessing that worked well.
