One More Ready to Quilt

Wow!  I never would have thought my last post would get so many comments in favor of Mr. Fugly.  I guess he might not be so fugly after all!  By the way, my new favorite word is forgeous {forever gorgeous} thanks to Crickets Corner!  That’s a superb word and I plan on using it, a lot.  Thanks to all of you for your words of support concerning Mr. Fugly.  At least I now know he’s not totally repulsive.  I’m a little behind in responding to the comments but I have read each and every one.

I loaded another quilt today.  I’m really trying to get these tops quilted so I don’t feel so behind.  I decided to load a baby quilt mostly because it’s little and I should be able to quilt it fast.  This is the closest thing to instant gratification for a quilter.  The pattern was designed by myself and my mother a couple years ago.

I haven’t completely decided how it should be quilted.  Does anyone have any suggestions for quilting a star?  I tried to google it but I came up empty.  The search returned answers regarding piecing a star.  Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

The wonderful UPS man brought me a package today.  It’s a yummy bundle of Over the Rainbow batiks from Moda!  This is my first bundle of fat eighths so I have no idea what I will do with them.  But who cares.  They are forgeous!

And finally a little teaser of a project I’ve been working on that uses Cuzco, Kate Spain’s newest fabrics.  I love this line because it’s packed with all of my favorite colors ~ pink, purple & turquoise.  I have about 9 blocks to finish then I can take pics to share.  I really like how it’s coming along.

I hope you all have a great Labor Day weekend!  I’ll be spending the next couple of days with the family but I’ll be back on Monday.  And don’t forget to enter our current giveaway…there’s still time!

Happy Labor Day!

  1. Oh my gosh! I love your sneak peak! Those fabrics are stunning and I can’t wait for your big reveal. I am probably no help with the quilting bit. I really love shadow quilting lately. Sometimes it seems like too much quilting makes the quilt feel stiff and heavy. Am I alone in that thought?

  2. Vicki, I love the finished circus quilt and had to surf back through your blog to see who designed it.
    KUDDOS!!! to both you and your Mom.
    Your design, fabics used and color placement are right on for this quilt. I was hoping there’d be a link to the pattern so I do somethng similiar for some panels I just purchased and that way the math would be done for me. Jane
