Sewing Patchwork quilt top finished

Do you ever measure your success/accomplishments by the sewing projects you’ve completed over the course of a week, month or year?  I feel like I’ve moved ahead a square in the game of life with this Sewing Patchwork quilt top finished.  Maybe that’s because it seems like forever since I’ve finished a whole quilt and not just a little wall hanging or an organized file drawer.

I love the simplicity of this quilt and the modern vintage feel.  It went together quickly, too, which is a bonus.  This came from a kit that I received from Fig Tree’s subscription box program last year.   Sometimes I love not having to make decisions on fabric choice and placement.  And those scissors!

Next project (besides quilting the aforementioned quilt) is to finish this little mug rug that I recently started.  I’m taking a few process pictures along the way so I can share the “how to” details with you soon.

Happy Cinco de Mayo by the way!  We celebrated last night with “Cuatro de Mayo”, and I made my chicken and shrimp fajitas and these fabulous 5-ingredient Chipotle Chicken Taquitos from Foodie Crush which were a big hit with my kids and their friends.  (I made the baked, not fried, version of her recipe and it was delicious.)  Don’t forget the homemade guacamole and mango-bell pepper salsa!

  1. I have that quilt kit from Fig Tree also. I hope to get to it soon, I really like how yours turned out. Cute mug rug too.

  2. I am working on my UFOs and just finished placemats today. They’ve been done except for the quilting and binding. Did the quilting last week and did the binding yesterday and today while traveling. We are traveling the next 2 weeks and hope to get a charity UFO quilt completed that now just needs binding. I save my bindings for riding in the car when we travel otherwise I do them in front of the TV.

I love hearing from you! Thanks for leaving a comment.
