Let’s Get This Party Started

First Blocks - couldn't resist cutting!

Just call me Faith, collector of quilt tops. Seriously though, I have the fronts and backs finished for my last two quilts I’ve shown you, so I let myself cut into my new Denyse Schmidt fabric Just.This.Once. I had the itch, I’ve scratched it, and now I will go back to finishing my other two before continuing this one. :)

Organized Chaos…Echino Style

Echino

I finished my Echino quilt top last week, after practically a 6 month break. I’m not sure why it took me so long to pick this one up again, I really love the Echino patterns and colors. And I even have enough fabric left over to make something else fun…perhaps an improv quilt like Elizabeth?

I will be working on the back this week…still throwing around ideas in my head. I’m not sure how to quilt it either, any suggestions? I do need to get to the store to buy batting today. The snowpocalypse is on the way to Chicago and I’m getting excited for a potential 18+ inches of snow!
