Beginner's Quilt-Along

Snow Day Sewing

I spent the past few weeks finishing up a few of my 'Three Times the Charm' quilts that needed attention. I finished the top for Dora back in December but I wasn't sure what I wanted to use for backing. I finally decided on a lilac minky dot fabric. It is amazing - the cat and I are both really liking this one :) I did add an extra border in order to make it large enough to be a lap quilt for me.

 I also finished up the Emma quilt that I had started during the same time as Dora. The quilt is flannel, front and back, with no batting. I bought the sashing and borders at a shop when I didn't have the original fabric along...this isn't my favorite quilt ever but I do really like the pattern. I sewed this quilt right-sides together and then flipped it right-side out in order to get myself out of binding it :)

I also made a quick self-binding baby blanket for a friend this week as well. I had bought a bag of scraps with no plan so this was perfect!



Here is the next project that I am working on...


We'll see how this table runner actually turns out. Right now its pretty questionable! I figure since it's still snowing here in SD I can work with snowflake fabric.

Happy sewing!
