Finished the Top

Yesterday I finished the top that I started on Tuesday night, amazing how quickly that went together, I even surprised myself.  Even more amazing......everything came from my stash, including the backing and binding, the only thing I had to purchase was the batting.  I need to watch for the next big sale on batting at Joann's and get a large quantitiy so I will always have some here when I work on smaller lap/twin size quilts.  What do ya think.....
I will try to take another picture outside later today, to see if the colors look different.  I am planning on keeping this one and putting it on the ladder in the livingroom corner.  I think I will try to make a few more quilts like this using fabric (most I already have) that is "seasonal" so I can change during the year!  Sounds like a great idea, stay tuned to see if I actually get it done, LOL. 

I want to get in the attic today and get the fall stuff down so I can decorate and actually enjoy it until after Thanksgiving.  The fall stuff goes great with my house as most of the colors I have are all in that family of colors so I love the feel of my house, just need to add a few quilts to make it cozy.  I looked at the pictures  from the last post and laughed because I make quilts and I had fleece throws on my chairs not quilts!  Terry, I promise the next photo with the ladder will have a quilt on it even if it is not complete, LOL, it will take longer to get them on the chairs and back of the sofa! 

Gotta get going so I can get something done today!


  1. Good job finishing the top! Even as it is, it will look lovely on your ladder! Don't feel too bad...I have fleece throws on my couch too! LOL

  2. Love the quilt top. You have such a wonderful talent. Thank you so much for changing things so I could see the reflection better. Your new look is beautiful and so easy to read. Thank you again.

  3. I love that! You are so talented!
    It is so cozy looking,and I can't believe how fast you can put all that together!

  4. Wow you are amazing... that would take me a year to complete. Great job... that will look awesome on your latter... nothing like a beautiful quilt to cozy up things... can't wait to see it completed and up.

    Hope you are feeling better... have a great weekend, don't know if I will have a chance to post or keep up... no internet. I have to depend on stealing WiFi signals

    Hugs, Deb

    PS... this is so much better for reading.

  5. oops meant ladder... I should spell check my replies, why do I always find the mistakes too

  6. Very nice and can't wait to see the quilts on the ladder!

  7. I love the top, both the colors and the design. I crochet afghans and make quilted throws and yet I have fleece throws on our chairs. They're much easier to wash and dry every week to recycle the dog hair. :)


I really enjoy hearing your comments, sorry I had to turn on the "word verification" but I got my first comment from a "non-person".......I prefer comments from people.
