All Cut Up


I was busy and probably was standing way too long yesterday as my knees hurt this morning but I have the fabric all cut and ready to go for those new little top that I plan on working on this weekend.

The top is called X-Rated – I don’t know if that will be my name for it, I usually change it from someone else calls it but not always.  The pattern is from Carrie Nelson’s Schnibbles Times Two.  I used 12 fat quarters and about 1 1/2 yards of cream bella solid.  And the fabric was all free – that always makes it so much nicer! Winning give away’s is great – someone asked me how I manage to win – I enter! you have to enter to win and if you enter enough of them sometimes you are bound to win Smile  I only enter the ones that have very few instructions, I am not going to jump through hoops to enter.  This quilt is supposed to measure about 69 x 69 inches when finished.


Not all fat quarters are created equal – ever notice that!  I did need to dig in the stash and pull out two pieces to cut up a little more for the border pieces but I don’t think I would have had enough even if all these pieces had been the same size.  She did call for 68 – 10 inch squares from layer cakes  in her pattern and I was using fat quarters.


This weekend I will be busy machine sewing off and on, applique on the Red and Green (2 borders left to do), quilting on Joseph’s Coat – yes it has been awhile since I showed it, I have not been getting time in every day on it anymore but it is still coming along.  I am almost done with the 6th out of 10 rows of quilting.  I hope to get a bit done but one can never tell, maybe plans will change.

Have a great weekend.

(I am compensated for any purchases made through my links.)

    Looking good! Those are great fabrics and the design will be nice and interesting with all the fabrics.
    I get a pain on my left side when I cut for too long…I think I twist my body. 🙂
