Ginger Blossoms and leftovers

Very little got done around the house yesterday. No phone calls or emails were returned, no blog reading, no Facebooking, no Flickr stalking. Instead, I spent most of the day finishing up my quilt top for Dana's Old Red Barn Co. quilt along and it's finally done. I love this quilt top. I originally intended to use the Urban Chiks line by Swell but I had mostly fat quarters and there would be more waste than I wanted. So I raided my stash and came up with this: It's mostly Ginger Blossom and Farmer's Market by Sandi Henderson. I threw in a little Amy Butler and some cute dots from a line called Iota by Robert Kaufman. I can't believe I had all that in my stash and never played with it. This quilt top measures 72"x84".


I had left overs from each strip and made a modified coin quilt. I added a little Kona white around each of the coin strips and then sashed with Bahama Blue also by Kona. I think the blue really make the strips pop. I like this "leftovers" quilt just as much as the other one. This coin quilt top measures 43"x55".
Now if you'll excuse me, I've got some catching up to do...

    Thanks,

  16. Impressive! I'm amazed at all of you {crazy} ladies who crank out these quilts, especially more than one in a lifetime, haha. It took me FOREVER on that dang quilt-a-long, and I can't imagine already having cranked out one or two more since then. Seriously, I'm amazed!!!!
