Momentum is still at work.....
My little mini retreat last weekend got me motivated and the momentum is still at work.
I finished the baby chevron, machine quilted it and put the binding on....just needs a label.
Took this off the long arm Thursday.
I quilted it with "angel wings"
Friday night I got the binding on and hand stitched it down.
Love my big dot backing.
Then today, I got the ABC quilt top put together.
I have had these two fabrics (the red and the alphabet) in my stash for a good 5-6 years. The red is called Little Apples by Aneela Hoey for Moda. Can't wait to get this one on the long arm. I have in mind what I would like to get for a backing, but I will have to see if I can find it. So you will be seeing this one again soon, I hope.
Also, today I cut up yardage (and I mean YARDAGE) of a bright pink and orange "hibiscus" batik that will be the backing for my Hawaiian challenge quilt. This quilt should be third in line on the waiting list for the long arm. I can't wait to share this one with you.
That's it for now. Hope to keep this momentum up for awhile. There are lots of projects in my sewing room calling my name.

This quilt came about when I was going through my stash (trying to destash, actually) and I came across a layer cake. I did some research...
