Pink & Purple
The quilt that is this Month’s UFO project is my pink and purple quilt. I honestly don’t remember where the pattern is from. This was made with a lot of scraps of purples from a online swap many years ago. This top is at last 10 years old. My goal for this month is to get it sandwiched, quilted, and bound.
there is something satisfying about seeing a pile of scraps from trimming some blocks being trimmed. This baby quilt will be for a coworkers’ first grandbaby. It got my kitty’s seal of approval. Don’t worry, it will be washed before it is gifted. this is made with Moda fabrics from Me and my Sister – Petal Power using the Trifles quilt pattern by Its Sew Emma.
I need an intervention
i recently was looking for a specific quilt top that I had in my stash to quilt for a specific area in my house for fall. While I was at it, I decided to snap quick photos of the tops so I would remember them. I keep them in a spare bedroom closet since my sewing room closet is out of space. I had 34 quilt tops in that closet!!! Yes I put them on hangers to hang them in the closet. Some have the backing with them, some do not. My goal this next year is to finish a lot of these quilts.

The other reason is that I have so much stash fabric, that I really didn’t need to buy anything. I had a mini jelly roll (Robert Kauffman calls them Rollie Pollies) from a Sew Sampler box a few months ago. I also had bought a yard of fabric for binding when I got it as I do with most of the fabric I like and plan to keep so I at least…
The June 2019 Fat Quarter Shop’s Sew Sampler had a cute charm pack of fabric from Corey Yoder and a two bonus patterns from the book Sunday Best Quilts by Corey Yoder and Sherri L. McConnell. Instead of a pillow, I decided to make a small wall hanging. For the setting triangles and border For one of the pillows, I saw that there was going to be leftover strips, so I did some math and figured I could get 4 of the same sized strips from one charm square. I also figured that I could make 56 blocks with the strips. This setting only needed 50. I like pieced backs…
