Work at Cotton Creek Mill is keeping me busy and my down time is spent in the sewing room. I have no complaints! My job is going very well. I am working more hours and I got a raise! I am now able to fully fund my hobby all by myself. That feels pretty great, I must say!!
I have been trying to catch up on some quilt tops I made last year and get them into the finished pile. This is one of them. =) A little pink overload, don't you think?
The back isn't very pretty, but it works for me. I don't normally buy Christmas fabric, so I was pretty limited on what I could use for the back and I am trying to shop my stash before I go out to buy more fabric.
I made this quilt top as a store sample using Atelier by 3 Sisters. The pattern is Tapestry from the book Fat Quarter Style by It's Sew Emma. Our shop will have it sent out to be longarm quilted. I really love how this one looks. =)
A few weeks ago, I finished Pineapple and Figs by Fig Tree & Co. using Autumn Lily by Blackbird Designs. It's sitting while I decide if I want to add a border or not and I have no clue how to quilt it. I may have to save up and send it out to be longarm quilted. I have never done that before, so the thought makes me a bit nervous!!
Lastly, I began cutting the fabric to make Shortcake by Cluck Cluck Sew. Someone, somewhere on the web/Instagram was/is doing a sew-along using this pattern. I am way behind to join in on the sew-along, however, this is one pattern I have always wanted to make and it is perfect for my Miss Kate jelly roll. I decided to make the twin size quilt, so I added strips of fabric from other Bonnie and Camille lines I have in my stash. I admit it, I am a huge fan of Bonnie and Camille. HUGE!
Now I gotta run. Hi-ho, hi-ho, its off to work I go!!
May your fabric always be pressed and your scraps in control. =D Have a happy Wednesday!!
