For the last several weeks, I've been obsessed with sewing quilts!  It all started with a sew along on Pattern Review for a "scrappy trip-along" quilt.   I started it the end of January and finished it in a month.  I love scrappy quilts and love how my trip along turned out.  It was a lot of fun working on it.   Since my bedroom is decorated in turquoise, I added a matching border to the quilt. I took it to the quilter a couple weeks ago, so should get it back soon.  I can't wait!

After finished that, I decided to pull out a quilt top I started a couple years ago.   I had most of the blocks cut and over half already sewed.  It's a Double Irish Chain.  It's finished and waiting to be quilted.

After finishing the trip-along, I had a lot of 2-1/2 inch strips left over that I wanted to use up. While browsing around the web, I found this picture.   So pretty and simple to make.  So, now I'm working on this :)


  1. They are some great quilts. I don't have the patience or the preciseness for quilts. Well done.

  2. Those are awesome quilts Beverly! :)
