WIP Wednesday

WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced

Here is my second installment of WIP Wednesday.  I alluded to this quilt top in my first WIP post.  I actually finished it a couple weeks ago, but I haven't had time to take pictures.  As previously mentioned, I followed this pattern from Confessions of a Fabric Addict.

I wasn't so precise about my measurements, so my top isn't a perfect square (I'll get actually measurements when it's complete).  I made most of the top with fat quarters I had in my stash.  Only the blue in the corners are not FQs, though the fabric is from my stash.  I used it to make these napkins last November.  I also didn't have enough fabric to make the strips on the sides different widths, so I did them all the same.  And I didn't have enough of the purple fabric for all 4 sides, so I used some yellow from my stash to set off the fourth edge.

The backing is made.  Now I just need to bast, quilt, and bind.  I think for this one I'm going to try a self-binding.  We shall see...

My only other update is that my zig zag quilt is almost complete!  It's quilted and the binding is  ready - now I just have to get it sewn on and my first donation for 100 Quilts for Kids will be ready!
