Binding finished

Finally finished the binding. I sat around asking why it took me so long!

Currently there is no motivation to be found!! Working on scraps, but for the most part I do not even walk in here. When I do come into my sewing room...I usually just sit here wondering what I could start.

Final Quilt Top (CP Cherry)

Top is finished (I do not like it). We will see how it comes out after quilting

Quilting finished on Portal

Love the quilting Pat did ont his one. Starting the binding now.

Charm Pack Cherry Quilt Pattern

Free project download from FQ Shop. I was not sure I would like the color combo I chose for this quilt, and BOY was I RIGHT! I started with two charm packs (Fig and Plum, I think) and I decided to use two solids. Several prints had this pretty purple, so I went with that and I also went with white. I like the style of the pattern and I like the blocks individually, but combined it's a nightmare. That maroon in the cp, I'm not sure who thought it was a good combo.

This one is a definite give away or donation quilt.

On our way

I completed my previous project (Portal). It is now off to the quilter (thanks Pat)! I have started another project. It's a simple free pattern from FatQuarter Shop, called Charm Pack Cherry Quilt. I am using 2 Fig and Plum printed charm packs and 2 different solids (pattern calls for 1 solid so hopefully it looks scrappy and not ruined)....we shall see.

For the win

Made strides on the work in progress. I finally finished the quilt top. It looks a little plain to me, but it turned out exactly as I pictured in my head. My binding strips have been cut, now all I have to do is piece the backing. I chose a light blue flannel. That flannel back should make it nice an cozy. I think I will call it Portal, it kind of reminds me of a doorway.
