Blog Anniversary! 1 Year!

Time has flown, that’s for sure.  My first blog post was a year ago today, and it was pretty weak.  Over the last 365 days however, I have completed almost 80 posts, so averaging about 1 1/2 posts per week – which isn’t bad I think.  For an amateur.  I have also completed 5 quilt tops and 1 AYOS project (wall hanging size).

I am counting this as a finished quilt top as well, but I have one more night to dwell on it.  I like it, but my husband asked – what are you going to do on the sides?  Is it finished?

How do you like the tumbler block border?  I really think it looks good.  I have it on the top and bottom right now.

Can’t wait to see how this will look all quilted up!

If I stop now, then I can do a simple back of 3 yards sewn to 3 yards… if I make it any wider… then I have options to think about.  Albeit interesting options since I have so many tumblers leftover, and a jelly roll/layer cake of Happy Go Lucky I could open if needed.

This will be the (majority of) backing fabric:

Happy Go Lucky White Garden Yardage SKU# 55061-18

I think I really want to move on.  It looks good to me, and it can now theoretically fit a King bed – but best for a Queen.  I’ve got projects piling up (2013 FQS Designer Mystery BOM is getting shipped out this week!) – but you never know what I’ll show you tomorrow.  So stay tuned!

Thank you for joining me today and I hope to keep seeing so much great inspiration out there over the next year.

All the best,
