Castle Stairs ~ Top Finished

Well the other day when I was on my roll in getting things done I finished this quilt top, then went to do the back and I was short a few inches in fabric so I now need to put my thinking cap on and decide how I want to finish the back... it's a tough choice

I thought of doing it like a pie with six triangles, might even be able to use the one piece I have here, or a large hexagon in the middle about the size of four or five rows from the front. I'd love to see this one finished so I better decide quick :-)

Such a productive day...

I've had such a productive day today. I finished the quilt top for the quilt I started yesterday and now I'm straight line quilting my lots of bugs quilt. I was so nervous to do it and I still am... but I've decided not to judge till its finished. I've re basted it twice today as the last time I picked up this quilt the back didn't look so good. Well fingers crossed!

Blue & Purple :-)

It's so exciting, another two colours have been completed on our journey to create the rainbow.

I've received all of the purple charms

Start of a new quilt

I decided to start another project. This quilt grabbed my attention looking for something else. I'm hoping I'll be able to complete the top without too many issues as the person who wrote the tutorial had problems on one of hers. Fingers crossed :-)
