Starts and Finishes

My sewing machine was sitting quietly last week :(
Real world day job has taken the front seat and kept me busy.
I made up for it this holiday weekend!!

Finished boyfriends 1001 Peeps quilt

The filmstrip edges are definitely my favorite part


Simple straight line stitching on either side of the vertical seams

flannel backing
hand selected by boyfriend


Woohoo! 
Boyfriend tested and approved 

In other news,
I came across the Granny Squares QAL last night...
It starts March 1st..
After seeing these blocks popping up all over the place I've decided I can't resist :)
I'll be using these..

These beauties are from Pink Chalk fabrics monthly club.
Two charm packs and coordinating fat eighths every month? yes please!

QAL starts Thursday! Are you participating too?

  3. I was just thinking I had to start some of those cute granny squares, now that there's a quilt along, no reason not too :) And the film strip border, awesome - I'm definitely going to use that in the future.

  13. Just looked through your finished quilts,,this one is my favorite! I just love it! Especially those film strip edges - gives it your own spin on the plus quilt pattern. Nice backing flannel print, too.
