    The Quilt Bug is back..

    Now that Christmas is over...I have made 2 small baby quilts and just finished a lap quilt top. I will FMQ it tomorrow...I have not felt like sewing in 2 months...now I can't get enough of it...I even sewed together a bunch of 2 inch squares and made rice bags... Yah...I am finally in the mood once again ; )

    Funny you should start this thread. I can't get enough of quilting lately either, when I spent most of the fall wanting nothing to do with it. I pieced a queen size top in early December. Now I've made a large scrappy throw from the left over fabric. I'm busy hand quilting a baby quilt. Have the pattern and fabric all chosen to start a third quilt. Also found out a friend of mine is going to be a first time Grandma to twins, a boy and a girl in mid April What kind of a friend would I be not to make them both quilts?! Did I mention that Santa brought me 44 fat quarters and two new patterns for Christmas? If anyone is looking for me, I've taken a nose dive into my enormous stash and don't plan to come out before spring. I'll post pics as projects are completed.

    With all the fabrics I have, I hope I never get in a funk and don't want to make quilts. I just make one after another.
    Glad you are making quilts again.

    Our nearly 13 yr old twin boys asked me to make them each another quilt for their birthday in March. Just for fun I asked what year. So, this was not on my to do list but will have to sneak them in. Felt good that they asked for another one. Don't know what pattern yet.

    I haven't been able to quilt or even cut pieces for about 4 months. Happily, I am now able to sit for an hour or so and cut or sew so I am back in the saddle again too.

    In a quilting funk right now .. Can I blame it on the snow ? LOL been crocheting up a storm (only can crochet for 15 minutes then have to stop-carpal tunnel), so when I am on a respite from crocheting; I read about quilting. The Library knows me very well by now !LOL

    I am busy cutting up tumblers from my scrap pile to make a scrappy tumbler quilt...I normally do small tumblers for leader and ender quilts for my large quilts but today I am going to be making more burp clohes and using the tumbler pieces as the the leader and enders so I will be making the quilt at the same time...I love doing that...its amazing how quickly they go together.

    My friend bought over two boxes of fabric that she got from a woman that her father owned a fabric store and these are all of the remince pieces..all had tags on them...so took the tags off, washing, iron and cutting them up...I just started laying them out..very different an many kinds of fabrics...I cut them into small tumblers since they are so different...I hope this comes out nice...I also cut enough for my friend so she can make one too ; )I do wish there were more dark colors... I only dug into one box so far...it can be a bit overwhelming....but once cut it is nice.
