Sewing projects, ideas, successes, and utter failures.

Turn it out Tuesday February 16, 2010

I can’t believe how much energy I had today.  It must have been the oreos I had for breakfast.  You know, it IS the breakfast of champions.  First I pieced this:

With any luck, I may have it quilted by next Valentine’s Day.

Then I finished the binding on this:

Please excuse the blurriness of the photos.  I’ve temporarily replaced my good camera with a cheap one until I can afford to have mine repaired.  And, of course, I plan on blaming said cheap camera for my lack of skill when it comes to taking pictures.

I also finished all the blocks for a quilt using the Moda Odyssea line and now I just need to sew them together and finish it off with a couple of borders.  Oh, and I did finally get around to taking a picture of this quilt I made using the Riley Blake Wheels line:

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:

all-star-pic_t_w300_h300I am so excited about this fabric.  Isn’t it gorgeous?!  It isn’t often that you find cute material for a boy quilt.  I finished cutting up this fabric and I have started the piecing.  My friend Melissa and I are both making quilts for the All People Quilt Quarterly Challenge.  Updates to come!
