I have a few things in progress....a few just sitting in a pile, looking mournful....and many more bouncing around in my head!!

What is keeping me busy this week, though, is manhandling this one through my sewing machine...

It is pretty big..about 90"x 90"!  It reminded me why I like to make baby quilts!!

I also had to try my hand making a "Charm Pack Cherry". Fun little quilt....great free tutorial over at the Fat Quarter Shop! This charm pack was a Road 15 by Sweetwater. I have the top done, but am now trying to decide if I am going to add a little black  border, or just finish it at this size.

And a little bit of this....but more on this one another day :)

So I am now linking up to  TN&TN

And Lee's WIP Wed
                                                        WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced


  1. Very pretty projects Flo!! I give you so much credit for quilting on your sewing machine...I would be so stressed!! great job!!!!

  2. ohhh...The Simply Style mustard's and greys were definitely my favorite colors in that line. Can't wait to see this one finished, it's gorgeous!!! We have the same machine and I once did a 108x108 on it so I know your pain. Good luck!! :-)

  3. All lovely projects with super fabrics and color.

  4. Love the colours on that huge chevron quilt and I'm quite tempted by the Charm Pack Cherry Pattern. Nice work!

  5. That's a gorgeous looking quilt under the needle! I machine quilted a big one using my sewing machine and decided that was it... longarm was way easier than I expected. You seem to have the knack for it. That little quilt is just adorable! thanks for the link.

  6. That quilt is huge! Love the little top using charms. I'd leave it as is, but that is just me.

  7. Good luck quilting that big quilt!

  8. I have stuff piling up as well.....I have decided to get some things done before I go onto new and that is hard.

    How fun to do such a big quilt...lots of work but fun.

  9. Love your fabric choice on the charm pack cherry. I made one of those a while back and it came together so fast (of course it's still just a top, I always seem to put off the finishing because I hate basting!)


Please leave a comment or just say hello....It's nice to know I am not talking to myself!
