Whoop whoop! Look at this beauty that came in the mail--the jewel tones are stunning. This gorgeous brick top came all the way from Tampa, Florida from Bobbi (no blog) for my mom's charity quilt drive. I hit Joann's for some black Kona with my 60% off coupon yesterday and also found a perfect fabric for borders and backing at $3 a yard. Score, especially since it was $13.99 a yard originally. I will drop it off for quilting hopefully tomorrow.
I will also drop this top that I finished today off. This is just a quick scrap quit. All the rectangles are cut 3.5 x 6.5 inches. Sew two together to form a block and then lay the blocks out in opposite directions. This is set 10 blocks by 10 blocks. Before borders is measured 60 inches square. I cut my borders 3.5 inches wide. I am proud to say there are no repeated fabrics in this quilt! I also found a busy $3 a yard backing for this one too.
I am still waiting for my fabric I ordered for the Dog Gone Cute QAL to arrive. Instead
this week, I plan on working on making one of these--a Scrappy Summer Quilts for the charity quilt drive. I am not going to make it quite as long as the free tutorial, but I am using this color scheme.
Here is a link to the tutorial
If you are interested in contributing a top or a quilt for my mom's charity please send me an email at mcsdces19(at)gmail(dot)com or leave me a comment. Have a great week!
