Doing a lot of sewing, but a number of projects cannot be shown before Christmas!
But I have also been sewing some Quilt Tops for someone else. I’m just making the Tops – She will have them quilted by a Long-arm quilter. These are quilts I can share with you.
First one is called “Topsy Turvy” and is made with 3 – 1-yard cuts. The finished size is about 46” x 53”. I started it on 12/11 and finished the last couple of borders on 12/13. I was working on other projects, too. It was a nice pattern to follow and stitched up fairly quickly. If you wanted it to be a bigger quilt, you could buy 2 yards of each of the three fabrics.
The Second Quilt Top is called “Fat Quarter 4-Patch” and is made with a total of 3 yards of fabric using 12 Fat Quarters (a Fat Quarter is 1/4 of a yard of fabric, but is cut 18” x 22” instead of 9.5” x 44”). I actually made this one first and it took a few more days to make. It could be made larger by adding borders to it. It is approximately 42” x 58”
In addition to these two tops I have completed 6 “blank,” and 2 “bleep,” and 1 “Sh!!!” I have also been working on quilting 1 “not-telling,” and a pillow-cased child’s quilt for the son of one of Kim’s friend. Pictures at a later date!
