Now that I finished my brother's quilt top, made the backing cut with a wavy blade in my rotary cutter to avoid the mess of raveled edges,
and made the binding (look at that raveling - I even zig zag stitched the raw edges together),
I'm SO excited to start a new project! I have been sticking to my vow of finishing the project I'm working on before starting another. This keeps me from having a bunch of UFOs around that I generally wind up never finishing (or dread having to finish).
I've been wanting to make a couple of Quilts of Valor and bought a pile of red, white, and blue fabrics about a year ago. Since February 7th is the Quilts of Valor Foundation's National Sew Day, today is a good day to get these fabrics pressed and to start cutting the strips so I'm ready for next weekend. I'm going to do 2 lap sized (54" x 77") quilts with this fabric stack using Eleanor Burns' Quick Trip Quilt pattern.
These quilts are easy peasy and go together in a jiffy. I haven't made one since I finished this quilt in 2012 as a gift for one of my mother's friends.
Hope you're having a great weekend!
