Making Progress

The quilt top is now finished. I was surprised at how quickly it came together. Now to fit the backing, sandwich everything together and quilt. I'm not sure what fabric I'll use for the binding. Maybe if I have enough left over, I'll use some of the backing fabric as the binding. I cut all of the rest of the fabric into squares, and I might actually have enough of those to make a small quilt. Maybe lap size. Or, maybe I'll get some more of the same fabric and make a bigger sized quilt. I'm not sure yet what I'll do.

I'm happy with the way the quilt top looks so far. I love the brown and aqua together. As an aside, everything up to this point has been sewn on the Singer 337 which you can read more about here. It's been working like a champ with no problems. It'll be interesting to see if it does as well with the quilting part of the project. Keep checking back to see my progress!


  1. I love those colors. My friend makes quilts and I am amazed at all the different patterns you can make with quilts.

  2. Thanks! Right now I'm at the square and rectangle phase. I'm not ready to tackle triangles and circles yet. I think sometimes I need a little bit of instant gratification! I need to see it sooner rather than later, or else there's a chance it'll languish in a pile somewhere.
