Home Is Where My Story Begins

Quilt Progress

Two weeks ago the quilt in the picture above was just a pile of scraps. I must have bought this fabric a while back and then forgotten about it. I had already cut the fabric into strips, so I had to guess which quilt pattern I was thinking of using.


I needed a new project and this one just fell into my lap.



After sewing the blocks, I assembled them into strips.

I numbered the strips so I’d remember how to put the puzzle back together.

The quilt top is now finished. I’ll probably wait until fall to do the actual quilting. It gets a little warm when you’re sewing with a blanket on your lap.

    Wow, that's a huge project! I love to make quilts too, especially rag quilts.

    It's beautiful. I need to learn how to quilt. Maybe one of these years.

    Oh…you've inspired me to start on my own scrap quilt I've been planning for awhile now! Your quilt looks like it's coming along beautifully. I love the design and you've pieced it so perfectly! Can't wait to see how it looks when you are finished.

    It looks beautiful, Becca. Doesn't feel good to have accomplished that? Can't wait to see it all quilted and ready to tuck under. Patty

    I love the simplicity of your quilt. I find some quilts too busy but yours is the perfect balance of colour and pattern. I would love to make one some day.
