Off to the SPA - ALYOF


My ALYOF goal for July (goal post) was to get the border on my Celtic Solstice quilt and prepare the backing fabric.

I really appreciate all the suggestions on border.  I decided to go with a narrow white border and will either go with the green as binding or an aqua.  


The final decision maker was the amount of fabric I had on hand.  This quilt ended up bigger than I original intended when I ordered the backing fabric.  Wasn't room for another border.

Backing fabric all prepared and the quilt goes off to the spa (aka my long arm quilter)! 

I'll be linking up here for the finishes party.


Happy Stitching!

I'm in love!

I made my first 2 blocks from my Farmer's Wife book.   I just love these cute little blocks!

#1: Attic windows


#2: Autumn Tints

When I made my New Jersey quilt, I had purchased this yummy stack of Vintage Modern fabrics.  I just loved my finish quilt and gave it away to my mom for Christmas.  I have lots of the fabric left so decided to make my FW quilt in the same fabric line.



I found the paper piecing patterns by joining a Farmer's Wife group on Yahoo. 

Anyone out there starting their FW journey?  I am thinking about doing 2-3 blocks per week.




Happy Stitching!
