Progress and a setback

I finished a couple of tops this week – first up: the tshirt quilt top…yay! This puppy measures 70×74 😮

Not the best picture but it’s finally all pieced. In my last post I shared that I ordered the backing fabric and when it arrived I realized I’d made a measuring mistake – AACK!! Because the tone on tone text is directional I needed more fabric to piece the back so the text wouldn’t be going in various directions…smh!! I put in a new order and it should be here early in the week, needless to say I did not get any basting done, ugh!

Instead I focused on getting my Feb scrapattack2018 top completed. You may recall I was putting together blocks for a Stoplight quilt…and because its scrappy I found it all just a bit too busy for my liking. I played with some layout ideas and finally landed on adding a sashing row in between and a border. I think this gives the blocks a little room to breath 🙂  The top measures 63×73

I’m going to wait to finish this quilt for the Hands2Help challenge put on by Sarah at Confessions of a Fabric Addict. I also have a few other completed tops that I can pull out and finish up for the challenge…we’ll see.

The next big monster to tackle is the wedding dress quilt {{{cue screams of horror!}}}.

I mentioned this project back in January – one of my neighbors has asked me to carve up her wedding dress to make two quilts for her two daughters. The thought of cutting up her wedding dress has just got me paralyzed…what if I can’t make it work? what if she hates the quilts? what if, what if, what if!??? I really can’t procrastinate on this any longer – I need to pull on my big girl panties and JUST DO IT!

So…stay tuned for an update next week…until then have a wonderful rest of your weekend!
