• Finished quilting on my Christmas quilt
    So I made some progress on my Christmas quilt finally. Finished the simple quilting and now I just have to finish up the binding. It's weird that this is only my 2nd quilt that will be finished. It's not however the second quilt I started... That one is on the back burner for a bit. I'm excited to have this quilt to cuddle with in the next couple days :)
    Next... I tried to start my Oh My Stars! QAL. But here's the thing, I walked in the room, started cutting the bigger squares for the first set when I realized I had cut it just a tad too small. It's supposed to be 7 and 1/2... whoops. Therefore I am done for the night. More to come tomorrow, hopefully!
    Cutting failure :(
  • I finally took some time to pull fabrics for the 2 QAL's I signed up for. The first one is Oh My Stars! which can be found over yonder
    The fabrics I chose for that are here:
    Oh My Stars! QAL

    I love muted yellows! I paired those with some browns and grays. Love the way this stack looks

    Next... I signed up uber late for the chasing chevrons QAL. That one is found right over here
    I pulled this cloud 9 stack for that

    Chasing Chevrons QAL

    I love how soft this fabric is and I think it looks lovely with kona black. I am so excited to be a part of these two quilt alongs, as they are my first! eeps!

    I think that is it for now.

    Still no progress on my christmas quilt except that I did piece together my backing. I STILL need to put it all together and baste it, but we all know how I feel about that part....

  • I have made virtually no progress on any of my projects. I think my problem is that I barely have space to make a quilt sandwich and get it done!
    That is my least favorite part of quilting- layering the quilt and basting. So hard in a limited amount of space!

    On another note... after my last post about joining the oh my stars! QAL, I saw the chasing chevrons one as well that I may join in mucho late.

    :) must... stay.. motivated
