This quilt came close to being a UFO. I had made the blocks in January, and then pieced them into strips, and then... nothing. It just sat on my shelf and I was thinking that sewing strips into a quilt top is so much less fun than starting something else. But last week, I looked at the pile and it started bothering me. So one evening I set to work and finished the top. The next morning I pieced a back and even basted it.
And now I just have to quilt it. The fabric of this one is Terrain by Kate Spain, together with Kona white. It's really funny, until recently I never used white as a solid, and now I seem to use it almost exclusively! I have enough strips left from the jelly roll, so I will use that for the binding.
The new quilt I started will be made from leftovers. The zig zag quilt was made with a layer cake, and after I saw this fabulouse quilt, I knew what I wanted to make. And since I really love log cabins blocks, it's the perfect use for the fabric.
And last but not least this week, I made two more blocks for Amanda for our SD bee (the bee of members of the San Diego Modern Quilt Guild, and I'm proud to be still considered a member!). This was a lot of fun to make. Amanda just asked for two blocks, but since I had enough fabric for an extra one, I just couldn't stop myself...
And now I'll check out all the other fabulous projects at
