I have been slowly working on my Sweetwater Reunion quilt. I turned these blocks
into these rows.
here. With life a bit crazy right now, I figured I can at least work on something for 10 minutes a day, so I joined in. I have 3 UFO quilts hanging in bags in the closet, maybe this will help to get them finished up as well. I still haven't even finished the 2nd potholder from my tutorial, I need to do that also. I got some of the rows (well only the bottom 3) joined and should be finishing this up soon.
I have been seeing quite a few quilts lately similar to what I'm making. I didn't use any particular pattern because I wanted mine to end up about 50 x 70 finished. I did my own measurements and will share when it is completed. My inspiration came from a couple tutorials here and here. The second link is a Riley Blake tutorial that adds a fun strip into the front. I think I will try that next time I make this pattern.
It's good to be sewing again. I splurged today on something totally not necessary. I ordered a fat eighth bundle of the complete Waterfront Park line by Violet Craft for Michael Miller fabrics. I had a gift card credit left on Etsy and figured it was time to get it used up :) I happen to see the backing I wanted on sale at Crafter's Vision for 6.28 a yard. They have a Michael Miller sale this week, so it was another 20% off of that too! That gave me the push to go purchase the Waterfront Park bundle that has been in my cart for the last few months. Does anyone else have carts full at several quilt shops...at all times? I'm betting I'm not the only one :)
