Hi there!  You’ve probably noticed that I’m off my usual schedule this week :)  The massive giveaway and end of the school year have changed things up for me – we have just been enjoying our days, and next week the new routine will be put into motion.  Complete with chore chart – don’t tell my kids yet!

Remember this stack of tumblers?

I sewed them up into this quilt top!

 These are all Art Gallery fabrics, from three different lines I believe.  Together a fun, scrappy quilt, that went together beautifully!  No seam ripper required – that’s my kind of sewing :)

I did pin all the junctions as usual, and used a consistent seam allowance – you do need to use the basics – but the perfectly cut pieces make for much easier sewing!  It measures 44″x72″ right now – I’m going to dig through my box and see if I have any good borders, but I may just leave it :)  
AccuQuilt is offering a huge sale on their Go! Cutters, if you are ready to make a purchase (hint, hint!) there’s no end date available, so hopefully it’s still available after I announce the winner on Monday.

 I’ve had a couple of questions about my bar for hanging quilts…Joe rigged it up for me a few months back.  A couple of brackets from curtains, no longer being used in the living room, and electrical tubing cut down to 10 feet.  The clips are from Ikea (different curtains) and I move the quilt around often so that I don’t have too much stress on anyone point.  I have been thinking about adding sleeves to future quilts.

I need to email a bunch of featured quilters and get those set up for the next month or so – it completely slipped my mind this week!  Next week we will resume the regularly scheduled Friday posts.
Have a great weekend!
