Speedy Stitching

It's no secret that I love making quilts with Cake Mixes!!!  I have made my Royal quilt, Turning Time quilt, Jack and Jill quilt, and Gingerbread quilt all from Cake Mixes!!!  I just love using these papers to make fast and fabulous quilts!!!  So when my wonderful friends at Moda asked if I wanted to help with some Market sewing by making a new Cake Mix quilt, I of course, was all over it!!!

And of course, you can't made a Cake Mix quilt without making a bit of a mess ;)  First you sew, then you cut, then you rip papers and all in all, it makes for some fun trash!!!   If you have never made a Cake Mix Quilt, you can learn more about them here ;)    But like I said, it goes fast and you don't have to do any trimming for your units to be ready to be pieced into blocks.

Which is great, because did I mention Speedy Stitching!!!   Ya, this fabric (getting a little sneak peak before Market ;)  arrived at my house on Tuesday evening.   And the quilt will, hopefully, going back in the mail on Saturday.  So it's a good thing these Cake Mixes are fast!!!  I have the blocks all made and ready to be sewn in a quilt top today, quilted tomorrow, and bound and in the mail on Saturday.   I love me some Speedy Stitching ;)

I will share more of this quilt after Market, which as I mentioned, is almost here so you won't have to wait long to see this finish!!!   And speaking of finishes . . . be sure to pop back in tomorrow!!  I will be sharing a new quilt and free tutorial for the Year of the Fat Quarter and this month it's all about Aqua!!!   I can't wait ;)

Thanks for popping in today and I hope you have a very Happy Quilting Day!!!

  1. I have to laugh...I don’t do anything speedy, especially sewing. I’m just pokey to the core! I hurried, once......;). Look forward to seeing the big reveals!

  2. Looks like fun, and they sure knew who to call when they needed some speedy sewing done!! ;-) Can't wait to see the finished quilt! Have a great weekend! Hugs, H

  3. Looks interesting! Have you ever thought about tossing some of the smaller fabric strings outside for the birds. They'll grab them to make a next. I've done that with my serger threads and embroidery threads. I cut the longer pieces smaller so they won't get tangled in their beaks. When we had a Pomeranian pup, I'd trim her hair and toss it out in the flower bed. The birds would pick it up while I was still out there. LOL


Thank you so much for your sweet comments. I just love hearing from you!!
Have a Happy Quilting Day :)
