This week saw some big finishes in my little quilting world.
You may have seen periodic updates on this quilt on our Facebook Fan wall. I was commissioned to create just the top from fabric from early 2000’s & a pattern from the 1980’s. To say that it was a challenge to interpret into the rotary cutting world I live in is an understatement. But I am so very pleased with the result. Just for the record, that 2nd border has 832 pieces in it & it is a mitered corner…snoopy dance!

As part of my Use It Up Fall – Scrappy Fall pledge, I created this rag quilt. She’s a biggun (as we say ‘round here). The quilt is draped over a 6 foot table & is hitting the floor on the back side as well. The denim & fleece lining were in my sewing room taking up a ton of space. The eggplant fleece was a perfect match to the Sugar Pop pinks, so a quilt was born & a shelf was cleared!
Last, I finished my stockings order for my customer who is using these as her gift wrap this holiday season. Each family has a specific theme.
I also finished my “winter warm & ugly” quilt. Nah, I’m not showing it, but it is also part of my Use It Up Fall – Scrappy Fall pledge. I had an old hand pieced quilt top that I got I don’t know where that’s made from strips of old clothing. Wool, poly, corduroy, twill, you name it, it’s in there. So, using up what I had, I crazy/crumb patched blue denim for a center 30” wide strip & then bordered that with some pretty blue & yellow home dec weight fabric that was also laying around. It’s batted with high loft poly batting, tacked, washed & on my bed. I slept under it last night for the first time & it is so heavy & warm; Heaven on Earth for sure. And look at all the stuff out of my way in the process!
So, this week, I did the Snoopy Dance a few times. If you remember, last week I told you I’d have lots to share this week!
