Piecing up a Storm!!

So I was hoping to show a finished quilt today, but sadly, the long arm had other ideas and it is in the shop.   Which is probably good, because it was way overdue for a cleaning and servicing ;)   And since I couldn't quilt, I have been piecing up a storm this week!!!   So here is a few sneak peaks of what I have been stitching up this week ;)

First off, I got my extra charm packs and made up my Improv. Stars!!!!   So excited to have these done, it's never good to get behind in your own Quilt Along, tee hee hee.    ;)


And then I have been doing some super tiny piecing.   These blocks finish at 10" square and have a whole lot of points to match up.  They are for an upcoming project as part of Lori Holt's Autumn Love quilt and I can't wait to share it all done!!!   And I might be a little crazy, but I sure love tiny piecing!!!  It is just a great little skill builder ;)  And want to know something even crazier, I didn't use a single pin to put these blocks together!!!  My fingertips are getting really good as stand in for pins :)


And from tiny piecing, to super fast piecing . . . I am working on another Shortcut Quilt from Fat Quarter Shop.   You know how much I love these fun and fast quilts, and this time I am using Grunge for my background.    The blocks are all done and now it is time to sew it into a quilt top.   Eeekkk, it is going to be so awesome!!!


And finally, I am starting another Red, Black, and White quilt because Homecoming at my Alma Mater is right around the corner ;)   And can I just say, I am so excited about this one!!!  And I was able to strip piece the entire first 2 steps, so that is moving this project along super quick ;)   Are you surprised it's another Shortcut Quilt from Fat Quarter Shop.  I can't get enough of these!!!!


So now, I just need to get the long arm back so I can turn all of this piecing into finished quilts!!!! I am hoping to get it tomorrow, so it should be a fun filled week of quilting goodness starting Monday :)

I hope you all have a very Happy Quilting Weekend!!!

Pin It!

  2. How do you put a long arm in the shop? Aren't they kinda big to move around? Beautiful progress with the piecing. It must be a great feeling to get all that piecing done!!

  5. We recently moved and I found another thing to gripe about: I can't just go sew when I wake up waaaay too early anymore because my sewing machine is in my bedroom with my sleeping man instead of in the basement hiding away where nobody else in the house can hear it. waaaah! What am I supposed to do?!

    Your blocks all look wonderful. I even like the teaser posts. I have all my improv FG done; now I'm just waiting until I can sew them together.
