Work In Progress - First Hour Glass Quilt

This is my first Hour Glass Quilt and I am loving it so far.  It's a great way to use fabric scraps and I LOVE any quilt pattern that I could make good use of solids.  I think solid fabrics make prints POP.  Here's a look at the piecing progress today:


I have enough blocks made to make a nice size lap quilt :).  Can't wait to finish up the quilt top.  I have no idea what to do for the quilt back yet... ;)

Soft Squares Quilt Complete

I would like to introduce you to my first quilt of 2012 :) - I know it's mid February already but hey time flies and I've been ... occupied. With that sad, I am extremely happy and excited to share my latest quilt - Soft Squares.


The quilt top is a checkered design with prints and solid natural flannel from Robert Kaufman. The quilt back is a beautiful cotton print (Backyard Butterflies from Bernatex).


I absolutely adore the way all the colors play together. It is a very soft and cuddly.  I love the simplicity of the design - showing off each fabric.  I am also thrilled that the flannel fabric worked so well with the prints.  Initially I was planning on using a cotton solid but when the flannel fabric arrived I couldn't resist using it in this quilt :)


This quilt is quilted together using a straight stitching along each seam. It creates a durable and modern feel to this beautiful quilt top. The binding is a matching stripe print that goes so nicely with the quilt top and quilt bottom.

Quilt Information:
Soft Squares Quilt - 1
Front: 100% Cotton Prints, 100% cotton Flannel
Batting: Warm & Natural 100% cotton
Backing: 100% Cotton Print (Backyard Butterflies from Bernatex)
Completed Dimension: 43" x 118"
Quilting Method: Double Straight stitched along each seam
Binding: Machine Stitched for extra durability

Wow - I Sew??

Seems like FOREVER since I've touched my sewing machine for something other than: mending kids' clothes, sewing napkins and used as a flat surface for random stuff around my craft room.  But guess what?  I actually used it for a QUILTING project :)

When was the last quilt I worked on?  According to my dear blog here, it's been almost ONE MONTH.  Yes I know, it's appalling considering that quilting was the main reason why I started this blog in the first place a couple of years ago.  A million reasons later, I have not used my sewing machine or posted about quilting in almost a month. 

Hopefully this is the post to break that trend.  Here's my proof that quilts are being sewed in my sewing room :)

Proof #1 - The beginnings of a couple of Hour Glass quilts

Proof #2  - Binding!  Yep that means that some other quilts are almost completed :)

Hopefully this trend could continue and I'll have lots (a LOTS) of sewing and crafting posts to come...and not to mention COMPLETED quilts to share.
