What I Did on my Summer Vacation

100 Quilts for Kids Quilt-Along–almost done!

Posted on: September 25, 2011

I’m working on a quilt for the 100 Quilts for Kids Quilt-Along!  This weekend is the link-up, so here it is… DSCN3295

(this is upside down… oops)

A while back I sent off some charms for an I-Spy charm swap on Ravelry’s Quilters Knitting group. The idea was that they would all be kid-appropriate fabrics. Since there were about 60 charms in the pack, it was perfect for the Storytime Squares quilt!

This quilt came together SUPER quickly. Like, ridiculously so. Two evenings, maybe, for the top. Working with pre-cuts makes things SO much easier–I hate cutting! I decided to leave off the final borders, feeling like it was big enough without it. I’ve backed it with a puzzle-print that is an autism awareness fabric, apparently, and I’m working on quilting it using FMQ for the first time (loops and curliques). I will post the finished version when it’s done! In the meantime I have a Christmas block to make for a swap, a Halloween mug rug, and I’d like to get caught up on my Across the Sea quilt and my Skill-Builder Sampler–in addition to all my grading, test writing, math team stuff, and hosting a bridal shower next week! Soooo much to do!
