quilt progress...

Take a look at the strips I've put together with the fabric I shared yesterday.  This is one of my all time favorite patterns.  It was super simple to cut using this technique from Cluck Cluck Sew and the squares are very easily chain pieced together.

It’s the same pattern I used to make last years Christmas quilt and I’m also using a smaller version to make my scrap quilt this year.

 It feels so good to be quilting again.  I’m in the groove and don’t see an end in sight…for a while anyways.  I know my crafting A.D.D. will kick in soon enough and some other craft will call my name but for now I feel the call of the fabric and I am loving it.

I’ll be sharing my first Fat Quarter block of the month very soon.  I finished it just in time as I think the next one will be in the mail any day now.

Beautiful, Patty! LOL! Yes, I can tell which option won out!! :) Don't blame you one bit!! My daughter cleaned out a closet two weekends ago and pulled out an old quilt my grandmother made many years ago...I stored it in the closet to preserve it, but realized when she brought it out; WHAT A WASTE to have it out of sight!! So now we enjoy the quilt in my living room as it is draped over an overstuft chair ...LOVE it! :)

Hope you had a wonderful 4th!

Your combination of fabrics are turning into a very pretty quilt. That does look like an easy and fun quilt. No wonder you are using the pattern again. I imagine it looks different with different fabric choices. Your use of paper and finding is also so creative, I understand how you would want to get back to that too.
