Link up for March

I am a little behind schedule with my quilt. I ended up being away for a few weeks this month and worked quite a few extra hours. I am quilting the Scrappy Log quilt on my machine now. I believe I am about 1/3 of the way through. I am hoping to do a lot of quilting this weekend. I did not want to take the quilt out of my machine until I'm finished quilting the center. So I don't have a progress picture for it as of tonight. Hopefully the quilt center will be complete by the end of the weekend and then I'll add a picture of it to this post.

While being away for my work, I took my Fat Quarters for my next quilt and cut up 3 out of the 8 Fat quarters. So at least I'm a few steps further for the future quilt Funfetti. I'm not sure exactly on when I'll start this one but being prepared should make the piecing go quickly :)



I also stopped by a fabric store and purchased a few items. I bought some stencils which I'm thinking about trying in the Scrappy Logs quilt. I've never used any before so I'm slightly nervous especially since this quilt is a gift. Here's a picture of my new goodies to add to my stash :)


Times are getting busy. I'm getting married in less than a month! I need to be hitting the gym for the next little while too. Here's to hoping I have some quilting time next week to complete Scrappy Logs quilt :)

Happy Quilting!

So as promised. I finished quilting my center this evening. So here is a picture of the quilt so far. I just need to decide if I'm going to quilt the border or just put a binding on. Decisions, decisions. I hate to take away from the beauty of the quilt top with the quilting which is why it was done extremely simple.

  1. Love those fabrics you chose for Funfetti! I have no idea how you're managing to quilt with a wedding just a month away! I don't think I quilted at all in the year leading up to my wedding! Best of luck with the last minute planning!

    1. Thank you :) The fabrics are from the So Happy Collection by Deena Rutter. I asked to have fabric out of that collection cut into Fat Quarters for the Funfetti quilt. Quilting relaxes me :) And most of all the important details are done except for me joining and attending the gym :)

    1. Thanks! This is the first quilt I made from "scraps" so to speak. It has been an interesting journey at times. I'm looking forward to having it complete. I've never taken fabric with me but it may be a new start for me especially when I travel for work. Thanks for the well wishes :)

    1. Thank you! I bought that fabric with no idea on what I would do with it but it was in a sale bin and very inexpensive so I figured why not. It came together well with this quilt. The whole quilt was made from my stash and my "inherited stash" except for the backing. I always buy the backing last :)
