Time to Quilt

This is the first post I have done in a while that hasn't been linked up to someone else's post for some reason. Feels good. I have been piecing like a mad woman over here, with so many baby quilts and a few other things with deadlines. Now, It is finally time to quilt.
This is the back of my picnic quilt for the blog hop. Can't show the front yet, but this baby is quilted and ready for the binding, as soon as I figure out what that is.  I do have an idea.
 Then I began making backings for the baby quilt tops that are finished. My baby quilts tend to be about 40-42 inches, more or less square. I have lots of one yard cuts that are wide enough, but not long enough, so I started adding a piece of something else to lengthen it.
You can't tell here, but the strip of yellow is off center, as is the brown above. That makes it a bit more interesting, I think. I have one more done, but for some reason I can't get that picture to upload. I tried 3 times. So anyway, I have 3 baby quilts that will get basted and quilted over the next week or so.
 And lastly, I have begun playing with these. I tried them on some neutrals and on some black and white fabrics.
I haven't decided yet, but I am leaning toward the neutrals. We'll see. Have a great week and I will talk to you soon.


  1. Lots of lovely projects on the go there Charlotte!

  2. You have some pretty projects going.

  3. Oooh Charlotte, I love the back for your picnic quilt! I am in that one too and I am working like a Trojan on it. Seems to be consuming a lot of my thoughts! I am excited to see what everyone does, where they go and what they eat. Good luck on your curvy block!
