Quilt Swirls Equal Quilting Time!!!

 Well, I am happy to report that while I was at a quilt retreat last week, I got 3 quilt tops finished!!!!   This is so very exciting, and now it's time to do some Happy Quilting ;)  I worked on quilt back this morning so I could get these on the long arm soon, before they join the ranks of "to be quilted" tops ;)

The first quilt swirl has been a sampler of mine for sometime (I first used it for this class back in 2020) .   I had pieces of it pinned to boards, but I am pretty sure I have taught this class for the last time (since the book is going out of print) so I figured I might as well take all of those pieces and turn it into a quilt!!!   Can you guess what quilt it is from my Charming Baby Quilts Book (hint, it's on the cover ;) 

Next up, is the class I took while at the retreat ;)  We made Trixie by Hello Melly Designs, and if you couldn't guess by the Red, White, and Black, this is going to be another Alma Mater quilt ;)   I am so happy about this one, because while it was mostly strip pieced and chain stitched, I got it done, start to finish, while at the retreat.   So great!!!  

And you might recall the little sneak peek I gave last January on this quilt . . . well I am thrilled that those stacks got turned into a quilt top!!!   And the most exciting part of all . . . this quilt will actually be for me bed ;)   Now to quilt it up with lots and lots of wavy arches to compliment the Braided Irish Chain.    It's a king size so it will take a little while, but I can't wait to get it all done.  

So I best be off and start some Happy Quilting!!!

What are you working on today?? 

Pin It!
