You don’t think about how big a twin quilt is until you start quilting…


So here is my latest finish. I really did mean to post pictures of this WHILE I was making it, instead of just popping up with another completely finished project, but the camera and I didn’t get along very well.


So, now it’s done :) And it is BIG! Well, relatively big. I haven’t made anything bigger than a lap or baby quilt since probably this time last year, so it felt rather massive, finishing at 70” x 91”.

I quilted random lines all over; a first for me. It turned out so cool! And was easier than I expected it to be, hurray!


Thank you to my awesome husband for carrying the ladder downstairs and then standing on it to hold up my quilt! He’s the best :)

I used Anthology Fabric’s High Society line and Kona Charcoal for this puppy. When I first saw these fabrics, I went meh, they are ok I guess. Then I kept walking by them in my favorite LQS…and then the exact quilt I wanted to make with them popped into my head. That’s when I started collecting a fat quarter here and therefor this here quilt. Don’t even get me started on my MESSED UP math for my border fabric…there was originally only one border….and I was NOT going to go buy more fabric! So I stole my mom’s :)


Check out the awesomeness of this back!! I LOVE the grey with yellow flower print, it is my favorite!! And I had ONE extra block, and I did not want it floating around my sewing area forever, so there it goes!

This one will be going up in the shop if it is still around after tomorrow’s boutique. Which leads me to…..if you are local, come visit the Handmade Boutique at Recker and Guadalupe in Gilbert tomorrow! We are crossing our fingers that we won’t get poured on…it is rather blustery out today, and tomorrow’s forecast is for rain…But POSITIVE THOUGHTS!


And I leave you today with a picture of my wonderful helpers. Oh yeah, and check back Monday for info on a fantastic giveaway being sponsored by ME!
