Custom Quilt Top Complete & Bit of a Dilemma

 I have to admit that this turned out much better than I had imagined.

I'm picking up the backing on my lunch break and hope to get started on quilting tonight.  I'm just using widely spaced straight lines so hopefully it won't take too long.  The binding is already cut and will be applied by  machine.

I managed to finish up this little guy on Friday.  There's one May project out of the way :).  I also got quite a bit accomplished on my Spring Sampler!  And I started one block of the Forest QAL.  Ugh, another WIP (why do I do this to myself?!)

And my dilemma...after searching through my stash this morning I couldn't find anything worthy of the Sew Mama Sew Giveaway (of that I could part with) so I suppose I will probably pick up something while I'm getting my backing fabric at lunch.  I had the same problem with my homemade items :(  I may try to whip something up this afternoon so be sure and check back to see what I come up with!


  1. Angela -- that is quite a dilemma (I frequently have this problem when playing with the traveling stash boxes). I for one would be interested in a large parcel of scraps but that's because I LOVE Scraps and the way they push you to be creative. I will check back later to see what you come up with. That quilt is beautiful

  2. I really like how that quilt turned out.

  3. The quilt top is amazing! I like your cute little gnome too :)
