I got one complete finish this week, even if it is small. I made pillow covers for  mom’s chair cushions that match the quilt I made her for Mother’s Day.


Finished Quilt Tops:

As I mentioned last week, I now have 4 finished quilt tops. Interestingly enough…. they are not the same quilt tops.  The 3 that needed to go to the quilter are the same. But, after a little seamripping, I’ve finished my Impromptu quilt top! Yea!

That means I have 4 quilt tops ready to go to the long arm quilter.


I know what you’re thinking… wait, doesn’t that mean that you have 5 finished tops? What happened to the communique quilt?

Quilt Tops in Progress:

Well, I’ve officially decided to move it back into the work in progress pile, as I plan to add lots more fabric to this and make it a king size quilt top. As you can see from my new quilt design, I plan to add 12-inches to the top and bottom of the quilt, and another 24-inches to each side.  It will certainly be a large quilt when I’m done, but I’m looking forward to having a nice quilt I can actually use on my bed.

That means the only quilt that hasn’t had any progress is my Christmas quilt, and I’m totally blaming my lack of love for handwork.

    Your projects look great! Can’t wait to see the progress on your Communique quilt!

      Thanks, but I’ll need to make some first!

    Your cushions are very nice and your tops wonderful!

      Thanks Christine! I really appreciate it.

    so may great wips! I’m sure you’ll be really happy with the decision to make Communique bigger- even if it means it has to go back to the WIP pile.

      I hope so, if nothing else, it will help to whittle down my fabric stash. Even after making the throw sized version, I have more than a banker’s box full of fabrics that would work for the quilt.

    Nice cushions, Andrea! Hope your mom is pleased. Reworking the Communique quilt to make it larger is a good call. Thanks for sharing what’s new!

      Thanks Lorna! I started working on some of the exterior today. I have a feeling it’s going to take a while.
