Results from the Friday Night Sew-in

My goal this week (which tied in beautifully with the sew-in) was to finally get this quilt top finished.IMAG0001 I started this quilt about 3 years ago and began collecting “Chocolat” fabric.  I collected this line much as I collected “Vienna Nights”.  I could not turn away from a piece if I saw it in a shop.  I bought some on line.  I bought some from another quilter.  Last year when they had the great sale at Fabric Mart I found more…so I bought it!  The quilt is queen-size and even with making the quilt top, two shams and valances for my bedroom windows, I still have yards of fabric.  Today I am going join my S3 group and ask them to help me decide which piece of yardage I should use to make a bed skirt.  After the bed skirt I will still have enough for the quilt back, pillow cases and a few throw pillows. 

I am determined to have this quilted and on my bed for the fall.  Wish me luck!
