Reunion Quilt Top

I have been holding on to some Reunion charm packs by Sweetwater for some time now.  I finally started to put them together last week. I decided to do a similar layout to my Salt Air Quilt, but instead of quarter half -square triangles I am doing just half-square triangles.  The end result will be a little less piecing and a slightly bigger quilt.  I love hanging my quilt tops up in a window to take pictures.  The stained glass effect is so stunning!

Hopefully this will be quilted and binded by the end of next week.  Then I will put it up for sale in my etsy shop.  I hope it sells as fast as my Salt Air Quilt did!  SOLD!

Have a great Friday!!!

Riley Blake Small Dots

The Small Cotton Dots are in from Riley Blake Designs and I can't wait to make something out of them.

They are now available in my shop!

I also am getting restocked on Chevron (small) and the rest will be in on Monday.

They sold so quickly it made my head spin a little bit.

A big thanks to Applique Market for mentioning me on Facebook.

They sell very cute applique patterns like this

Pocket Square

Everybody has been so excited about these fabrics, there are just so many ways you can use them.

Have a great weekend sewing!

Trying to Finish

This quilt top has been finished for a couple of weeks and just hanging on my design board.  Since school has started back up I've had precious little time to sew.  I decided to take the day off from the ToDo list and just concentrate on finishing this quilt.

Of coarse other things get in the way like grocery shopping, making lunch, and the US Open (exciting matches today).  All I had left to do was piece the back (check), Iron quilt back (check), make quilt sandwich (working on it), and figuring out how to quilt the dang thing (scratching my head).  Hopefully I can at least start quilting it today.  Come tomorrow I turn back into a pumpkin and must get some school work down.  Sometimes I wish I could just make time stop for a few hours so I could squeeze in a little more sewing time.

My Helper

Once this quilt gets quilted and binded it will go up for sale in my Etsy shop.
