One (huge thing) One Week Challenge

Just A Reminder . . . Today is the last day to enter my 300 follower giveaway here :)

So this week Amy had her One Thing One Week Challenge.  I love when Amy does these!!!  They always get me into super sewing mode.  This week was no exception, in fact, it was probably the biggest One Week Challenge I have set for myself.  My goal was to finish my twin size quilt top for my February Moda Bake Shop tutorial.  The reason this goal was so huge was because as of Monday I had 1 block of 20 done.  Thus began the sewing marathon!!!  Oh did I have fun!!!!  Here is a sneak peak of a "portion" of the block  (Ya, I am a tease, you'll have to wait till the end of February to see the rest :)  I am so happy to say that as of Saturday morning the quilt top was done . . .Ya, Goal Completed!!!!!




But of course, when I get a quilt top all done I just can't wait to get it finished.  I love free motion quilting and had some pretty specific ideas of how I wanted to do this quilt up.  So Sunday afternoon began the free motion quilting marathon.  It went into the late hours of Sunday evening :)  Just before midnight the dryer buzzed and the quilt had that wonderful finished snuggle me feel.  Oh, I am so super happy for how it turned out.  I am so excited about this quilt.  Want to see the quilting??



You didn't really think I would show the front, did you.  Tee Hee Hee.  Sorry, I know you really can't see any of the quilting but trust me, it is pretty awesome.  And just in case you are wondering, Yes, I quilted this twin size quilt on my little Bernina :)  Lots of pins and :."slightly" sore shoulders :)
Pin It!
