Quilting Week Part 1

Firstly, thank you for all your lovely comments about Lola, according to Spiderman she was very well recieved.



So, when I finished Lola, I couldn't decide on what to do next. I looked at my list of things to do and one thing jumped out at me.... Milo's big boy quilt which I bought the fabric for back in April. I set myself a challenge - Lets see how much I can get done in a week???

I decided to do this pattern from Buttonberry but make it a bit bigger using 12 FQ's instead of 9.

Sunday night I cut out all the squares . I don't have a rotary cutter or mat ( hello santa) so I made cardboard templates and used a pair of scissors.





Monday night I made all the squares up into blocks



Tuesday night I finished the quilt top





Tonight I'm going to attempt some backing. I'm trying to only use fabric I already have so this will be a challenge. Wish me luck..

Oh and don't forget my giveaway

Am also 'planning' 2 quilts for my boys! When I say planning I mean buying lots of fabric!
The end is in sight to the big family quilt so once that is done I'm going to get started on the boys quilts - they will be kept very simple and quick!
Off to look at Buttonberry!
