Too much ambition? January 28, 2010

Today I was feeling a bit cocky.  Perhaps too cocky.  Cocky enough that I broke my number one rule of never buying backing and batting for a top until it is finished.  I cut out all of my fabric last night and started sewing it together.  It is a simple enough quilt and I knew I could sew it together in an hour or so today.  So I went out and bought everything else I needed while running my 1200 errands today (okay, that’s a slight exaggeration, but I swear it is only slight ).  I did finish (okay, almost finished, it still needs borders) the top but there is no way I am going to get around to quilting it until Monday.  *sniff*  Anyway, the fabrics are from Riley Blake’s new line Wheels and you get a sneak peak:

    I have a 1/2 yd. bundle of this waiting to be used. I can’t wait to see it when it’s all done! 🙂

      I just posted the finished baby quilt today. I really like it but it is busy! I could have made it less busy with some solids but I think it is fun to make a busy quilt sometimes!
