Productive Quilting Weekend

I had a very productive quilting weekend. I finished my Chiclets quilt top. I've named it Around the Farm. It will eventually be donated to a soldier's family or possible to a child in Afghanistan. I also spent time sandwiching a table runner, ripping out borders on another quilt, washing and ironing fabric for a mystery quilt and another quilt I'm planning and I even made 5 blocks for the Triple Irish Chain quilt I started last May.

My FDIL, Tasha, wanted to make a quilt. So late last fall we chose fabric, in January she washed, ironed and cut it. This weekend she decided it was time to sew it. She did a great job and only had to rip out and redo two seams. This week we will choose border and backing fabrics. Then we will send it to the long arm quilter for quilting. Her quilt is named Here's Piglet. The first quilt I made last year had Winnie-the-Pooh fabric, but no Piglet. Piglet is her favorite character so when I saw the fabric on vacation last fall I knew I had to buy it for her.

Love your Chiclets quilt! It reminds me of one my Friendship group made with a strip swap. It's called "Four Patches and Friends" and I think its from "Can of Worms" book. We named our Friendship Group "4Patches" after it.

I love your Chiclet's quilt too. I had SO much fun hostessing the Chiclet's Sew-a-thon in March 2006.
