Weekend Quickie

So, I have a new sewing scheme in life.  Weeknights I work on the Single Girl.  I have tunnel vision.  (Except when I'm writing posts...or reading blogs...or watching get the idea.)

On the weekends, I let myself work on other random projects.  Weekend quickies, if you will.  Last weekend I cut into my Half Moon Modern (and a few solids) to make this:

I love it! Partly because I love this fabric line and partly because it made me feel super productive to make a whole quilt top in 2 days.  (2 days! WHAT?!?!)  It will become quilt 1 of 2 for twin girls that are still incubating.  For twins, I like to make quilts that are similar but not the same so I'm not going to use tumblers for the other one.  Since the weekend is almost here again (woohoo!) I have to pick another shape toute suite.  Any ideas?


  1. Oooh it's so pretty! I think we talked hexies? Triangles? I have the diamond die for the GoBaby and you're welcome to borrow it of course.

  2. That's such a cute and happy quilt top! And yay for finishing it so quickly! The solids you threw in are just the right touch. :)

  3. Good plan! What about hexies or...circles? You could do like a drunkards path block. That would be cute. But, it's easy for me to give ideas while I drown over here in wips, so... ;)

  4. Apple Core!!!! Or Hexies are always fun :) This looks really good and you totally deserve that feel-good, accomplished feeling!


What's on your mind?
