Saturday Quilting




It's spring break next week for school, so I'm planning on using my extra free time to work on some quilt tops that have been sitting in my closet for a few months.






But, before I get to those older projects, I wanted to work on my new quilt project. Today I finished the Mod Sampler Quilt Along quilt top. I cut everything out last night and spent this afternoon sewing the blocks and finishing the top. I'm so excited that I was able to make this entire top out of my fabric stash! I think I'll have to wait until my shopping hiatus is over in order to finish the back of this quilt. I just don't have a lot of big pieces of fabric in my stash that will work for the back.






This shopping hiatus is definitely teaching me to use what I have and be satisfied with what I already have. I've been trying to use up my extra bobbins and thread and have saved a lot of money by not buying new matching thread to quilt blocks. It's really nice to empty some spots on my thread holder and empty out some bobbins.

    I have been feeling very satisfied since I decided to knit from the stash this year. It's true that it makes you appreciate what you have.

  6. ah, spring break. the ONE time of year when I wish i was taking more than one class, so that I could actually feel like I was getting a break! That quilt looks like a good day of sewing. congratulations! are you loving the mod sampler quilt-along? i very much enjoyed her post about color theory. way more than I ever thought I would. I wonder if I could do a stash quilt.... Not that I don't have a stash (I do. it's huge.) but not all of it is quilting weight, so... that wouldn't work so well. hmmmmm.... you are an inspiration!
