Another One Bites the Dust....

Well one more quilting project has been crossed off the list! While we were all stuck in the house with the yucky flu and a string of other sicknesses over the past 5 weeks, I have tried to use that time to tie up the loose ends on my quilting "To Do" list. Recently I was able to cross #2 off the list!

1. Finish machine quilting a baby quilt
2. Finish piecing the top on a winter print quilt
3. Make pillowcases to match our new bed quilt
4. Make pillowcases for Julia's new bed quilt
 This winter lap quilt is laid out in a super simple squares and diamonds pattern. I simply used 2 charm packs from the wonderful in line of "12 Days of Christmas" from Kate Spain. I laid the 5"squares on 8" black squares (I really wanted to show case this gorgeous fabric and the black really makes the pop). All the way on the right I have shown two fabrics I think are really fun. I kept the pattern super simple and plan to show off some quilting with beautiful red thread. I think it will be a while before I get to machine quilting it, but I am tickled to have finished the top and cross it off my list.

I have linked up to Quilt Story again this week...this time for Fabric Tuesday! If you want to see more completed projects head over to check them out...or link up yourself!

The black really does make those fabrics pop. Doesn't it feel great to finish something on your quilting to do list? I finished a quilt for my granddaughter this week - just the label to go. http://carolburris.com/grandchildren/rhis-quilt/

Don't you love Kate Spain's wonderful Christmas fabric? Hope to see it when you get the quilting done!

I agree, the black really highlights the bright colors of the rest of the quilt, great choice!
