I had a sewing marathon today.
I cut this quilt out a week or so ago. It's called Fancy That.
Last night I laid out all the pieces to organize the colors.
Before heading off to bed, I pinned a few of the pieces together along with using my Marilee numbered pins to number the rows.
My sewing marathon started at 6:00 this morning and by the end of my day, I had a completed quilt top.
This is a great quilt for showcasing those fabrics that you love, but don't want to cut up. It's pretty easy and a fun, contemporary quilt. I have been wanting to do a yellow and gray quilt and when I saw my friend Ruthie over at http://threadsofmine.blogspot.com/ do this quilt at one of our retreats, I knew I had to have it. I am not usually a contemporary quilt maker, but I do like this quilt. It's so light and refreshing.
I think I can see this quilt in Christmas fabrics, too. But for now, I have way too many other things on my plate to think about that....but you never know!
