Quilt I wish

I am working on a quilt, but I never have time to WORK on it.  Instead it's this heap that needs ironed.

But, I can't iron it because I am doing a different patchwork, a patchwork on my wall:

It's a patchwork of tape that will be painted grey over this white for my daughters bedroom.  Here's the entire wall.

I've still got a lot of work to do and my hubby want me to hurry so he can paint it and move onto the ceilings.  So, gotta get to work!  

By the way that quilt I'm making will go in this room and the colors of paint were selected to match the quilt fabric.  
As was the paint for these picture frames for her walls.  There will be 9 picture frames and 2 jewelry cork board frames.

2015 BOM

My local quilting shop is having me work with their BOM for the coming year.  I only got the fabric samples about 10 days ago and they need the quilt in their shop for advertising ASAP. 
So what have I been doing.
Cutting...sewing...ironing...cutting...sewing...ironing 

I let them know the border will have to wait as will the quilting, but here is what this Curve It Up quilt by SewkindofWonderful will look like:


I love the color combo that they selected.

Now to get back to work on the two quilts I need to still make for Christmas gifts.

Sassy finished!

Yeah, I finally have the quilt completely finished!!!

It is made with the fabric Sassy line by Moda.  Here is how much fabric it took: 1 sassy jelly roll, 2/3 yard sassy fabric for border, 1/2 yard sassy fabric for binding lots of Kona cotton white for sashing and inner border and 4 yards sassy fabric for backing.


This twin size quilt turned out to be 67 1/2" x 84 1/2"

I free-arm quilted this with a floral print.

I love how this stripes binding just pulls it all together. 

It is (or will be) available in my etsy store
