I did it!!! I finally finish my first quilt top. Yeah!!! I finished it on Saturday. We have not be going down to the basement since it is so cold. The basement is where all my craft stuff is. Therefore, I have not been getting much sewing done or stampin for that matter. After signing up for the siggy swap I was so ready to sew something. So I brought up my sewing machine and quilt blocks and got to it.
I used Glace by 3 Sisters for Moda. Gotta love the precuts!!! I used a layer cake, jelly roll and a charm pack for this quilt. The pattern is from Rachel at psiquilt. You can find her tutorial here. Her tutorials are so easy to follow. I'm a beginner so they have to be easy for me.
I love how it turned out. If you can't tell from the pictures, this is a Christmas fabric. Yep, I started it in the fall of 2009 hoping to get it done by Christmas. Things happen and well, maybe I will get it quilted before Christmas 2010. We will see.
Update on the siggy swap...I ordered my fabric on Sat. and it is a back ordered fabric, (as usual I pick something that is not available to ship out but I loved it to much to pick something else out ) so I will hopefully get it by the end of January. In the mean time, I'm going to keep myself busy by working on some other quilt projects I need to start. Or I will go buy more fabric. :0
Thanks for stopping by.
Have a great day!!!
