Updates on Sewing Up My Fabric!

Since I originally posted my description of this blog, I have somewhat erred from my intention. I have actually bought much more fabric than I had but ................. in my defense, I got the solids at 50% off and the quilt shop fabric at 75% off, so that doesn't count, right? LOL

February OMG - a few days late!

OMG February - almost!
It only took me a week to quilt it but I just couldn't get the binding finished in time!
This was a 2016 Saturday Sampler quilt from my LQS. The pattern is "Seeing Stars" by Tricia Cribs of Turning Twenty.
This is a large quilt.  Long anyway.  76" x 96"
I was determined to quilt the whole quilt from Angela Walters' Free Motion Quilting Challenge Week 2.  The entire quilt is quilted with meander or echoing.  I am really pleased with how it looked.  I learned a lot from this exercise.

At first, I looked at these pinwheels and panicked not knowing how to quilt them.  Then I looked at them again and saw that they were in a square so I echoed the square!  I really like how it turned out.

March OMG

March OMG
This is a baby quilt that I really need to finish!
Just need to quilt and bind it.  
I was just three sides of my binding making the January and February OMGs.  I hope that surely I can make this one since it is so small, about 45" square.

OMG - One Monthly Goal for January

January OMG Finished - Quilted and Bound

Back of January OMG
My OMG was to finish piecing, basting, quilting and binding my Wayward Transparency quilt by Quilting Jet Girl.
I was afraid if I didn't make it my OMG that I might not get it done until a lot later.

First Finish of 2018

Quilted and Bound!
 This is my first finish for 2018.  The "Growing Up QAL" by Alida for 2017. 
I had entered it as my December One Monthly Goal, but didn't get the binding finished in time.

The Back
I used every bit of fabric I had left from this line to make the backing.

This was all the fabric I had left.

I cut it all up into usable precuts and the leftovers will go toward string quilts, fabric bowls, and crumb quilts.

I can't believe I actually addressed the leftovers so soon! LOL
