The Stack is Growing

My stack of finished quilts is slowly growing- and no surprise, so is my list of projects to do! Today I finished quilting and binding my Nicey Jane quilt top, and I think it's a nice addition to the stack.


I quilted it the usual way- straight lines in the sashing and borders and to emphasize the squares. I really like how the quilting emphasizes this pattern. It's simple, but effective.

I pieced the back with two of my favorite prints from the Nicey Jane line, the stripes and the lindy leaf.
And the best part is, I have a pillow to match! Except now, I want more pillows. I guess I'll add it to the ginormous "to do" list.


With less than a week left before school is back in session, I'm pretty pleased with the progress I've made on my quilts. Once classes start, I know I won't have as much time to spend on quilting but I still hope to squeeze in a sewing moment every now and then. And maybe I'll have time for some smaller projects. I'm working on one right now that is going to be really cool if I can pull it off. We shall see...

  1. Do you remember the name and designers of the fabric you used on the pillow... and perhaps even some on the quilt? A lot to ask I know! It's just so pretty! This whole quilt is absolutely gorgeous.
