Making More Progress

I had a pretty good chance to sew this weekend (no long periods of time but lots of an hour here, 90 minutes there) as well as a bit of time yesterday evening and I was able to make a lot of progress on my projects!

I’ve finished sewing together all of the HSTs that form the 15 rows of my quilt.  I also have all of the seams pressed (alternating directions with each row) so all I have left to do is sew the rows together and I’ll have completed my first quilt top!


I also cut all of my charm squares for the Kate Spade Charm Swap I joined.  I turned this pretty stack of fabrics:


Into these stacks of 56 charm squares each!  That’s a total of 224 charm squares!


I’m so excited to get them sent off for the swap and see all of the pretty fabrics I get back.  It actually didn’t take nearly as long as I expected to cut all of the charm squares out thanks to the helpful tutorial on cutting charm squares from yardage that Elizabeth Hartman put together over at Oh, Frannson!.

I should have some time tonight to put some work into my Modern Trees quilt-along project.  I’ve been busy with other things and have fallen a little behind so hopefully a can catch up a bit!

Hope everyone is having a great week!

  1. Wow–a huge congratulations on finishing up your first quilt top. That is such a great achievement and I hope you are really proud of yourself! And welcome to the world of quilting! I’ve been a quilter for about 35 years, and have made lots of quilts, but I still remember my first quilt (and PS, yours looks WAY better than my first quilt!).

    Anyway–just wanted to give you a pat on the back!

  2. Your finished quilt top is gorgeous. Well done, and if I read correctly in the comment above…your first? Great job! Anyone would love to have the groups of fabrics you’ve cut for the Charm Swap…aren’t they so much fun?
