Grey was the Fave :)

Thanks so much for everyone's input on my puling fabrics post.  I think Grey won by a landslide :)  I decided to give the combo a try this weekend as I needed to come up with a quick quilt back.  So I grabbed some of the purple damask and added a grey stripe and wouldn't you know, I love it!!!!  I am so looking forward to making the bag now!!

Oh, and if you are wondering what the quilt is, sorry, you will have to wonder a little longer.  Remember these geese from the beginning of the month, the secret project ones, . . . that's what is on the other side.  But I can show you the fun spiral I quilted.  I just love the way these turn out, which is good because otherwise it wouldn't be worth the aching shoulder of maneuvering that quilt in a circle a million times ;)

So what did you get done this weekend??  Any quilting goodies??
Pin It!


  1. Oh I love the spiral quilting! I haven't been brave enough to try that yet but I really want to. Did you do it on the long-arm or your regular machine? And I really wish it was Wednesday because I want to cut into my stack for Star Light Star Bright already!! I'm so ready to start working on something new - I finished a swoon mini quilt for my living room wall this weekend and it was an utter disaster from the beginning. I made it work in the end but it was such a pain that I sort of glare at it every time I look at it?? Haha. Maybe I should just take it down!

  2. I enjoyTrue Colors more every time I see them. Looking forward to seeing the front!

    my weekend was pretty unproductive, sewing wise. Until March my schedule isnt really going to allow me to get more than little snippets of time here and there.

  3. I'm so glad you went with the grey! It looks awesome. Love the spiral too. I'm really going to have to try it one of these days!

  4. Boy is that a pretty combination!! I can see why you are excited to make the bag! I worked on my husband's deer quilt on Sunday after being sick in bed all day Saturday. I am almost finished with it! :)

  5. Looks fabulous Melissa! Gonna have to try that spiral :)

  6. Glad to know I was right, tee hee :oD

  7. Great combination! I love that spiral quilting, too. I can't wait to see the front. I was busy with two of my young granddaughters this weekend, so no sewing for me. Today was spent cleaning, so hopefully tomorrow will be spent quilting,

  8. I like that you spell grey with an e. Hahaha, I know that's probably fairly petty of me, but as an Aussie it just looks correct that way. It is the traditional English way of spelling it I guess, because Australian English is more closely aligned with England than America.


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