I have realized that I am starting to collect quilt tops.
That’s 6 tops hanging up and I have 2 more in boxes. I really need to baste and quilt these guys. I have the backing fabric for about 1/2 of them. Does anyone else hoard quilt tops without finishing them?
I finished this top today:
It’s the 2013 Sugar Block club by Amy Gibson of Stitchery Dickory Dock. I picked up this lovely scribble print off of EBay.
I wanted to set the designs on point but I didn’t get enough fabric to do so. I still like the way it turned out. I’m calling it ‘Riddle Me This’. The quilt just makes me think of a joke from my childhood. What’s black and white and red all over? Answer: a newspaper. It’s just goofy and I love it!
Here’s more fabric I got from #thegreatfabricdestash on Instagram. I ordered it prior to my ‘no fabric purchased for the rest of February’ pledge.
I could not pass up this sweet giraffe print from Michael Miller. I’m planning to use it to make a gift for my darling niece. You just can’t go wrong with a Kona grey roll-up. And I couldn’t resist the Botanics Charm pack for $1.99 during the Daily Deal at Missouri Quilt Company.
I’m hoping to get one of those tops basted and quilted by the end of the month. That gives me 2 weeks. I think I can do it.
