Finishing some Quilt Tops!

Well, the painting continues!  Last week I painted the library.  I will be posting photos soon.  I do get to run into the sewing room for moments of sewing and I have been working to get two tops done.  This one is a simple hour glass quilt using Tiger Lily fabric.  The photo does not do the fabric justice.  It is lovely with little girls and cats on it.  The background fabric is Butter (Moda Bella Solid).  The backing is made as well as the binding.  I will be quilting it soon.

This is a Missouri Star Quilt Company pattern called Double Diamonds and I used Blueberry Park fabric (jelly roll).  The background fabric is White Bleach (Moda Solid).  Of course I kept all the cut off triangles and am piecing a mini from them.  Loving how warm and bright this quilt is.  I will be doing a border in red and using black and white for the binding.

The temperature afghan continues to grow and I am having so much fun checking to see what color the day will bring.  As you can see by the reds, we have had some hot weather recently.  

Hubby and I made a pilgrimage to IKEA on the weekend.  It is a 1.5 hour trip each way.  We had a blast.  I bought this oh so cute box for a project.  Don't you just love it?  It is a fairly big box.  Fun containers are something I just love.  I think this one qualifies as fun.

I hope you are having a good week so far.  Make it count and spend some fun time sewing.  


  1. wonderful work! don't you just love that blueberry park fabric? I know I do!

  2. Loving your temperature afghan! The box is adorable too...altho I'm not sure I want my boxes watching me. On Sunday I bought a smallish 3 compartment caddy in the back-to-school section of WallyWorld. Thought it would be fun to carry hexie projects. I need another container like a hole in the head but it was cute and my fav color.

  3. Your quilt tops are looking great Chantal. Your temperature afghan is going to be an interesting make!

  4. You've had a very busy and productive summer, painting and sewing. Your two tops are super cute. Hopefully, this fall you'll be able to work on the quilting. Butter by Moda is a great yellow. I've used it too.
