A Productive Easter Sunday

I hope the Easter bunny was good to you both ... 

I figure this is how all of you in the north feel!!  We don't have any snow, thank goodness!!!

I finished the top of the basketball quilt today!!  I'll bring it with me to quilt at your place later this week. Here's how it turned out so far:

Dallas pointed out that the two middle rows aren't exactly even.  I didn't make them that way because I thought it would look okay and I think it does!!!  The next big question, how to quilt it???  I think I'm going to use black thread and do a large meandering pattern.  The t-shirts won't stretch so much if I do that.

I pulled this old magazine after I finished the basketball quilt top.

It's from 2006!!  That's old now!! LOL!!  I still really like the quilt on the cover.  It's simple and would be quick to do.  This is the quilt that I really really like from that magazine!!!

I can't remember when I started to work on this quilt.  Obviously, a long time ago based on the age of the magazine.  I was reminded how much I liked the quilt and thought maybe I should finish it or at least get it going a little more.  I was able to finish 1/2 of the quilt top today.

I didn't do any planning.  I just started sewing and this happened ... 

And this ... 

And this ... Which isn't that bad!

And these three too ... 

There are a bunch of poka dot squares and this is the only one that I've used so far.  So that means that the other 1/2 of the quilt will be over run with them.

That's what happens to when I don't make a plan.  Why can't I be random?

Well I've watched my way into Season 6 of Vampire Diaries and now it's time for this quilter to head to bed!!!
Night Night!!

  1. The pink quilt looks great. Large meandering loops sound like a good idea. What are you binding it with, I see bright pink binding in my head. Love that red and white quilt still, can't wait to see it done. We spent the day with family yesterday so I'll have to try for some productivity today.
