Slow Going On My Postage Stamp Quilt

I have made some progress with my Postage Stamp quilt.

I really under estimated how long it would take to cut all of the strips.


I finally got everything cut.


And I'm now making all of the blocks.

They are actually going quite smoothly. I hope to get them done this weekend.

Postage Stamp Quilt Along

Well, I finally made some progress on my Postage Stamp quilt. This is the quilt along that is being hosted on PS I Quilt. Real life has been crashed down on us, so there hasn't been as much free time as there once was.


I have my strips sewn together now. I used two jelly rolls - Buttercup by Fig Tree Quilts and a solid roll of snow.

I'll try to get the strips cut this week, and then start the blocks next weekend.

Coffee, Anyone?

I recently bought a charm pack of Java fabrics. I spent some time this afternoon making a bunch of coaster out of them.

I'm taking these into work. We're a team of coffee drinkers to these seem fitting.



And I'm keeping these ones for home. They sort of go with the other colors in the living room.

New Fabric!

I went crazy a couple weeks ago and ordered a bunch of pre-cuts that I found on sale. And they all arrived this week.

The pretty charm packs are Nature's Notebook from Moda. I ordered them from Jelly Rolls 2 Go. They have an amazing selection of precuts.


These were all from Missouri Star Quilt Co - I can't resist their daily deals.


Java was also ordered from Jelly Rolls 2 Go. I'm going to make a bunch of coaster with this and take them in to work.

And I couldn't resist It's A Hoot - also from Moda.


And finally another Daily Deal from Misssouri Star Quilt Co - A Breath of Avignon jelly roll.

Well enough with the new fabric. I had better get back to my postage stamp quilt. I am way behind on it.

Breakfast at Tiffany's


Wasn't that crazy about the movie, but I sure like the fabric line "Breakfast at Tiffany's" by Fig Tree & Co.

Using charm packs, this top can very easily be made in one day.

Goodies, And Plans For The Weekend

Some more fabric arrived today - yipee!

First some new jelly rolls.

Besides a roll of Snow, there's a Pure jelly roll by Sweetwater for Moda Fabrics.

And then a Bright Kona Cotton Solids roll up Robert Kaufman Fabrics.

I'm going to make squares from the quilt following this quilt along from Fat Quarterly.


And look at this lovely pink fabric. Isn't it pretty!

It's called "Pretty in Pink" Kona cotton - a fat quarter bundle from Robert Kaufman Fabrics.

Haven't quite decided what I'm going to do with it yet.






I have tomorrow off, so another long weekend of sewing ahead of me. This is my layout for another patchwork top. This time it is made of charm packs of Breakfast at Tiffany's.

Central Park

A wonderful way to end the work day - finding my Central Park fabric waiting for me in the mailbox.


I ordered this jelly roll and charm pack from Missouri Star Quilt Company.

I have Friday off, so a three day weekend of sewing. I can hardly wait!

Patchwork Top Done

I spent this afternoon finishing the top of my first patchwork quilt.

I used Lumiere de Noel charm packs by French General for Moda Fabrics that I purchased from Fat Quarter Shop.

Ending The Week With New Fabric

My week ended with the arrival of some new fabric from Fat Quarter Shop.

Two new jelly rolls - Buttercup by Fig Tree Quilts and a coordinating plain in Snow.

I'm going to use these two rolls for the Postage Stamp quilt along being hosted by Rachel at PS I Quilt.


And then this amazing fat quarter bundle - Journeys by Kathy Davis for Free Spirit Fabrics. I've loved these fabrics for ages but wasn't sure what to make with them. But when they went on sale a Fat Quarter Shop this week I pounced!

My First Patchwork

I started work on another quilt this morning.

I'm using Lumiere de Noel charm packs. It saves a lot of time on cutting.
I got about seven rows done today (and the first five joined together). I'm really getting good at matching up the corners row after row.

No more sewing - back to work tomorrow!

Ahh, Bliss

I've had the fabric for this quilt for quite a few months and finally got to it this weekend.

The pattern is Meandering Path by Ellie Roberts which is available for download on the Moda Bakeshop website.

For the top all that is required is a Charm pack and a Layer Cake. I've choosen to use Moda fabric, Bliss by Bonnie & Camille.












The top came together quite nicely. I did make a mistake in my cutting, so I had to substitute a couple rectangles (never sneeze while cutting!). Luckily the ivory with red polka dot blends quite nicely.
