peaceloveandquilts I haven't been slacking, I promise. Half of the top is done, and now I'm working on the second half!I decided to do it this way so the pressing is more efficient/easier. It's a King! Don't you hate it when you are ironing a quilt top (or back) and 7/8 of it is on the floor?!?!? #counterproductive Oh, and.... #kittyphotobomb #Shadowkitty #missionscrappytrip #scrappytripalong #miniquilts #quilting #denyseschmidt #dsquilts 2d
  •   peaceloveandquilts @stitchmischief Thanks! If only I could *quilt* half of it, at a time, haha. That part is going to be a challenge! 2d
  •   smilestooloudly You can quilt half at a time.... Quilt as you go techniques abound on the internet. 2d
  •   peaceloveandquilts @smilestooloudly I considered that! I thought about one block at a time, by rows, or two equals, but I dreaded matching all those seams, with batting in the mix.This quilt unfortunately isn't a good candidate for that. Also, the patchwork is so small, that the blocks along seams would be noticeably smaller....I've brainstormed so many scenarios the last few months! I just have to wrestle that dude through my Janome. I can do it!It might kill me, but at least they'll have their quilt! 2d
  •   quiltville_bonnie It's looking really great! 2d
  •   tabathachanning Eeek! You are working so hard and I love you for it! 2d
  •   peaceloveandquilts @quiltville_bonnie Thanks so much, Bonnie!:-) 2d
  •   peaceloveandquilts @tabathachanning I love you too! You guys are totally worth it.️Can't wait to get it to you! 2d

argyle24 Does this need a border? If so, which one? It's about 74x86 w/o border. #finishit2015 #apqresolution #scrappytripalong #basicgrey 3d
  •   brooketyler2002 The bottom one blends better and doesn't stand out as much. But if you want them border to pop, go with the top one! They both look great, but there's a big difference in the end result!! 3d
  •   miaquilts I think it would be great either way. I'm partial to the bottom one if you go w the border 3d
  •   mrider12 If you decide yes to a border, my vote is for the top one. 3d
  •   tennye I like the boarder, the pink one. 3d
  •   buttonsandbutterflies I love that quilt pattern without a border. 3d
  •   snuzella I vote for the pink one. 3d
  •   thatredhead_bree I vote green. 3d
  •   allpeoplequilt We can't wait to see what you decide on! 3d

anniespatchpix @ghgn09 this is the block I'm making. It's @quiltville_bonnie Scrappy trip block. There's a tutorial on her website and it is a great block with lots of design possibilities. Check out the #scrappytripalong for lots of inspiration! 😀 #SewMyStash2015 1w

Annnnd, I still have to quilt it!Soooooo, yesterday and today, I'm turning blocks into rows. I'm ready to start on the 4th row. Yesssss!! #missionscrappytrip #scrappytripalong #quiltblocks #denyseschmidt #bobbins #aurifil #aurifilthread #quilting 2w
  •   damarisestrada It is going to be stunning!! 2w
  •   tennjenny you are seriously fast 2w
  •   peaceloveandquilts @tennjenny I'm trying to get it completed ASAP. It's a wedding gift for my bro and SIL. They got married in October! How embarrassing! #betterlatethannever 2w
  •   gigis_thimble Love your fabrics! 2w
  •   stitchmischief Gorgeous! How many blocks are you doing? I've just started a king size one as well. I think I need to aim for 72? 2w
  •   peaceloveandquilts @stitchmischief Thank you! 72 is exactly what I did! 8x9 was perfect. 8x8 would have been too small. 9x9 is just crazy-big! 2w
  •   tabathachanning We don't hold it being late against you! Things made with love take more time 2w
  •   sublime_dsigne @peaceloveandquilts I am looking for someone to sell me some wholesale hand sewn pillow covers. I have a very large booth and I have a request for burlap and Lacey white and cream ones. Do you know of anyone who maybe interested? Thanks 2w
