Swell Squares – finally done.

On the bed and all quilty and crinkley.


All my leftover fabrics went into the backing giving me two quilts in one.

Work is piling up on my sewing table.  I have two blocks to make for this months designers in my quilting bee.  I have to make a backing for my ‘Any way you slice it’ quilt, which I completely made into a minimalist style.  Coming up, I have to make a quilt for Suzannah’s school auction, start a special quilt for someone dear to me and I really want to make a quilt like Erin’s, based on Amanda Jean’s Flea Market Fancy quilt. I really like how Erin used that dark grey with the white and those Amy Butler Fabrics.   Then, I need to decide what to do with this pattern… and what to do with this bundle of beauties.

    I love those soft greens, so very pretty. Your quilting looks fantastic. The stitches are just so even and nice. I’m still having uneven stitch lengths with my FMQ but I’m practicing every day! Thanks for the inspiration. :-) Take care.
