Update: December 2016

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

My goal for 2017 is to completely finish one quilt per week including quilting and binding.

After all, we have to have a plan.

22nd Finish for 2017 - Quilted and Bound

22nd Finish for 2017
 I used to make Christmas pajamas for my children and grandchildren until I realized how much fabric scraps that I was amassing in the process.  So, one day I decided to cut all of the scraps into large squares and I had enough to make 9  fairly large twin size quilts.  This is #8.  I have one left to quilt and then I will have to start using the smaller scraps!  I have already made a queen size quilt from the leftover smaller scraps.

Her name quilted into the quilt!
It might be a little hard to see but I stitched her name in the squares.  I wish I had thought of that when I made the others!

Quilt Info

Size:  66" x 94"
Batting:  Fairfield Poly-fil Low-loft
Backing:  Muslin - because ALL of my kids love the feel of muslin backed quilts!

Quilted on my Innova Sit Down Long Arm

NOTE:  No fabric, batting or thread was purchased in 2017 to complete this quilt.
