I'm obsessed with this quilt. I can't wait to get started. I've even finished a few tasks that I hate doing - I took out the garbage, did errands around town, swept/washed the floor (okay I turned the robot on)!!! This is the version of the quilt that caught my eye:
I found it on Pinterest, which lead me to Pile O'Fabric Modern Sewing Blog!!! As I read the post, I discovered she used a jelly roll and made this into a wall hanging instead of a full size quilt. I just happen to have a few jelly rolls and I think I might follow her lead and make a wall hanging instead of a full sized quilt. So I played with some colours:
Since the quilt is called Super Nova, I thought I would search for some guidance. Here's what I used:
An actual super nova!!! I have a few more things, quilt things, to finish before I get to start this one. Maybe I can do this in NB this summer just using scraps!! No planning??? Not sure I can do that!!!!
One more sleep and it's the last day of school!!!!

It finally arrived!!!
I've quickly flipped through it ... Just looked at the pictures!! I can't wait to do some reading tonight. There's lots of tips inside this book for things like quilting and what type of designs to use.
I thought of you when I saw this one. I know how you like a scrappy quilt. I think this would look great with scraps and one solid.
This quilt is the reason why I wanted to buy this book!! I have pinned a bunch of them on Pinterest. I can't wait to try this one!!
There are a couple others in the book that I'm interested in too!!!
Happy last day with students!!

I've had a few moments today working on this quilt!! I do love how it turned out.
I did some fancy quilting through the hands. It might be a little too busy but it's done!! I quilted leaves through out the hands.
I added some grass ...

I figured I shouldn't cut the settin squares when I was tired so I did it this morning!!

So I didn't get this quilt done on time for the wedding but I did show the couple the picture!! They were excited! Here's where I'm at:
I started to lay this out tonight after I completed the squares. It was more challenging than I thought it should have been. I couldn't get the angle right. This is the first 1/2 of the quilt.
Here is 90% of the quilt:
I have all the side and end triangles done. They are pinned to the instruction sheets so I don't mix them up!! I'm going to pin these rows together so I don't mix up the order!
I am going to start and finish a baby gift tomorrow! I had some help getting this started!
I can't wait to put this one together. I'll have to pick out a new tv series to start tomorrow so I can stay focused!!
Hope this gives you the motivation to get that quilt done, Her!!!
Happy Saturday night!
