Thank you so much to everyone on Instagram for your help picking a sashing for my Sew Sampler Recipe Card quilt!!! I am so excited with how this turned out with the Moda Chambray Sashing, it just gives it the perfect summer picnic feel. And you might remember back here where I said I would have to set them aside for about a month . . . well it turned out closer to 2, but now the quilt top is done and I decided on a happy bright yellow backing to give it that extra bit of sunshine happiness. Can't wait to get this one finished up, and I already know how I want to quilt it, so it will probably get done first ;)
I also finished up my Mosiac Quilt top and backing this week. I cut this quilt out clear back in February and finished the blocks at about the same times as I finished the blocks above. To finish this one I opted for a simple white sashing that really makes all of those happy blues and green's pop :) Then for the backing, I choose a fun lime print from my stash, and then added a navy stripe to the pieced backing just for that bit of contrast. So fun!!!
And finally, I am so super excited that I can say that I finished piecing my Splendid Sampler Quilt top!!!! (Well, it actually still has to be pressed, but close enough right ;) And I am love, love, loving it!!!! This thing is a huge King Size quilt so I knew I was going to be doing some serious piecing for the backing. So I pulled out my stash of Grunge fabrics. I had some bits and pieces left from other projects, and wouldn't you know, it was just the perfect amount to piece together a rainbow grunge backing!! I totally squealed when I finished sewing it together. So fun!!!!
And now if you are thinking, why don't you open all these quilt tops and back's up and show us . . . Sorry about that. I know, such a tease right. It's just that I want to keep the "big reveals" for when they are all quilted and bound and pretty!!!! But I promise . . . soon ;) Time to get quilting!!!!
I hope you have a very Happy Quilting Weekend ;)
