A {SWEET} quilt

Tuesday, March 16, 2010

I ♥ getting a quilt back from the quilter.  I can see the finish line on the horizon.  Just a quick binding and then I'm finished!  It's such an exciting feeling! 

This is my "Sweet" quilt. 

The fabric line = Sweet by Urban Chicks for Moda
 The pattern = Shortnin' Bread by Fresh Cut Quilts

[Fresh Cut Quilts is doing a giveaway right now so be sure to check out Kari's blog and give her some comment love!  She is a fabulous Utah designer.  I love this pattern ~ it's perfect for charm packs and so cute!!]

  I know this fabric is kind of past it's prime, but I still love it.  My problelm is that I whip out the quilt tops and then I get stuck because I hate forking over the big bucks to buy the batting, backing and get them quilted.  I usually have at least 4 or 5 quilt tops waiting to be quilted.  This one has been sitting in my quilt cabinet for many months.

Well, I'm trying to be better.  It's my new goal ~ trying to see projects all the way through to the finish before starting a new one. 

I will be posting a binding tutorial next; including instructions & photos on how to cut fabric [FAST] on the bias and how to do mitered corners on a quilt.  Basically, the whole sha-bang.  Doing a great binding is an important thing to know if you ♥ quilting.  Don't let it scare you, it's really quite easy.
