Fat Quarter Shuffle Finished!!

I got the Fat Quarter Shuffle quilt finished today! I really, really like this pattern alot. It went together quickly and I love the way it looks. The backing is made out of a really soft cream colored blanket. It's so cuddly and warm! I can just see myself curled up with this quilt, reading a book and drinking hot chocolate. Maybe we'll even get some snow on the ground which would make it perfect!!!

Finally quilting again!

HI everyone!!

I'm finally back to quilting and it feels so great! I got alittle busy with a Christmas help type job, but luckily I got to quit that pretty quickly. I'm back to being "just" a mom and wife and I have to admit it is wonderful. I love being here to enjoy my husband and daughter. And of course that gives me alot more time for quilting too.

I spent a good part of the day today working on the Fat Quarter Shuffle quilt that I started a month or so ago. It's almost done! I decided to sorta cheat and finished it out pillowcase style instead of using binding. I also used a really soft blanket as the back without any batting in the middle. I think it's going to be very cuddly! I finished the "birthing" tonight and tomorrow I plan on tie it all over. I know, I know, it is sorta like cheating but I just want to get it finished and on my couch. LOL! I'll post pictures when I get it finished - hopefully tomorrow.

And, I already have my next project picked out. I'm going to make the most recent Quiltville mystery called Carolina Christmas. I'm not planning mine in Christmas colors though. I have picked out the colors - blues, greens, reds, and neutrals - and I have all my strips separated. There are already three steps available but I haven't started sewing yet. I want to get the other quilt finished before I start this one. I'm alittle worried that it is going to be too difficult for me but I suppose this will be an opportunity for me to grow as a quilter. It sure is wonderful of Bonnie to offer such great patterns!!!
