My goal this week (which tied in beautifully with the sew-in) was to finally get this quilt top finished. 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!
