Synchronized squares top
A few weeks ago I finished the quilt-along top I was working on. I’m pretty happy with the way it turned out. I just love the colorful fabrics.
This was a fun quilt to work on. It went together fairly quickly and if you had all the time in the world to quilt, you could easily get it done in a day or two. I took me about a month to get it done.
I have a light lime green fabric to back this with and I’m going to try to get the top, batting and backing put together in the next week or two. I haven’t decided how I’m going to quilt it yet. Any suggestions?
I’m feeling pretty comfortable with my mom’s friend’s (or my friend’s mom’s – same difference) sewing machine. I really like it. I’m going to have to re-adjust to my machine once I get back to Italy. Although, in all reality, I’m not 100% sure how much time I’ll have to quilt when I get back anyway, especially after baby #2 arrives. But I’m loading up on fabric to take back with me, just in case!
I also need to get labels to put on to my quilts. Does anyone have any recommendations for quilt labels? I’ve never used one, but I figure I’d better start!
