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!!!
