On a Roll

Fall is in the air. It is time for jeans, sweaters and boots. Warm drinks. Comfort food. And Quilts!

In my garage was a box full of UFO's ( unfinished projects). Yesterday I took the opportunity to get this Bliss quilt done. The squares are called "All Squared Up" by Jaybird Quilts. The border is 2.5 inches wide and the quilt measures 42 inches square. I stipple quilted it and handsewn binding. I love handsewn binding. It kept me warm last night- my hands were busy-watching t.v with the family and what a World Series Game!! I normally don't watch baseball, but wow. Super Fun.

Next up- Old Red Barn Co is having a quilt along on Flickr. Great place to learn how to quilt if you have the hankering. We are learning Dresden plates and this is my first wall hanging fabric pull. I also found a great link on dresden plate journal covers at SEW WE QUILT. Christmas is coming! At Rapid Speed! Must make Gifts! No, I'm not having a panic attack. It's 8 weeks. Not freaking out. I promise.
Have a great weekend.

  2. Love this quilt! I'm attempting the dresdens too so see you over on flickr. Enjoy the cooler weather!

  3. Love the pink and red! The dresdens sound like fun, but you're ahead of me - I haven't started yet.

  4. I love this bliss quilt! So gorgeous! I too am going to attempt the Dresdens...I'm seriously behind though, but you know. I too have UFO's big time...and I'm going to do those too.
