Come check out what I am working on!
It’s funny, because I always seems like I am juggling more than one quilt project at I time.
Laying Tracks by Slice of Pi Quilts
In December I started working on a quilt that my husband wanted. It is HUGE. It’s a king size quilt in University of Michigan colors (Go BLUE). This project was easy to cut, but with only two block patterns I HAD to be careful not to mix them up. They alternated across the quilt and had to be positioned in a very a specific way for the pattern to work.
As hard as this quilt was… It was a lot of fun to watch it come together. The woven design looks amazing!
I still need to quilt and bind it and I absolutely can’t wait to see it completely finished!
You can purchase this quilt pattern from SliceOfPiQuilts on Etsy. HERE is a link to the pattern.
Pineapple Delight Quilt Pattern by Exclusively Annie’s Quilt Designs
This quilt was a labor of love. I absolutely fell in love with the quilt design when I saw it, and then when I actually saw the pattern I shed a little tear. I mean, I KNEW there would be a lot of tiny little pieces of fabric that I would need to cut. However, I had NO idea that they would be template cut outs! My rotary cutter is basically my bestie when it comes to quilting.
But, I wasn’t going to back out… I already had my colors chosen!
To make this project move along a little faster I actually just measured the width of the templates and cut strips from my fabric and then trimmed them to fit the templates.
When I finished cutting all the pieces and was able to sew two blocks together I immediately knew that this difficult pattern was so worth it!
I still can’t decide if I should add a border to the quilt! That is the one thing holding me back from actually finishing it!
If you are interested in purchasing this pattern you can find it HERE on the Anniescatalog.com website.
Quilt-as-you-go Tote Bag by ME!
So, if you read one of my previous blog posts about my PreCutsQuiltBox subscription then you saw the tote bag that came in my very first box. I had so much fun making that quilt-as-you-go tote bag that I decided to try and make my own!
I was fairly successful. I just had two mess ups on one side that I decided to cover with some iron on patches I had laying around.
Overall I was pretty happy with my very first attempt at a tote bag!
I just need to bind it and make the straps!
I would love to hear what you think of my current projects!
Bye for now.
