Weekly Update - First Quilt Top Done!

Yay!!!! I finished my very first quilt top!!!!

*grabs the nearest person and does the dance of joy*


And here it is: Batik Cascade (Batik Go-Round) designed by Karen Combs and hand pieced by Yours Truly!


If I'm this excited now, you can just imagine what I'll be like when I get it quilted and bound. :D

Deanne Eisenman of Snuggles Quilts has posted the August installment of her Block of the Month series, Cat and Mouse. I started cutting the pieces, but unfortunately I didn't have enough background fabric. I've got some more on order, but it doesn't come in until next Tuesday.

Anyway, here's what I did get done.

So, the plan is to start piecing my next quilt tonight. Tomorrow, the other sew-along I plan to participate in is supposed to start. Then, after I get paid next week, I need to head to the store and buy some of the supplies that I need to finish Batik Cascade and then order the rest. After that, I'll have to wash the background fabric for Cat and Mouse and get going on it. Looks to be a busy week.
