It's a top!!!! Finally!!!!

I finally finished my "Patches and Pinwheels" quilt. This quilt is far different from the quilts I normally make. One reason is the fact that it's made completely from leftover scrap fabric. The second is that there are a lot of darks in the quilt. I tend to make a lot of my quilts in more modern fabrics.

Here are some pictures of the quilt on my bed, and a close up of the blocks.

I also started another quilt this week. I decided to make my own Jelly Roll with leftover 2.5 inch Amy Butler strips. Then I decided to make the picnic quilt that was recently posted on the Moda Bakeshop blog. I'll post pictures when I get it done. It's a really quick quilt and I'm only 10 blocks away from having all the blocks done.

I also bought some batting for two wall hangings that I'm going to attempt to quilt on my home machine. I've quilted most of my quilts myself, but I don't enjoy doing big projects on my home machine. I figured these two are small enough that I should be able to handle them.

Well....other than that I'm just trying to get ready for my study abroad. I leave in less than two weeks, so it's getting really exciting. I'll try my best to give you an update before I leave, and I'll be sure to show some beautiful pictures of my trip!
