Back in the saddle…

I finally made myself make a quilt top.  I still haven’t found my sewing mojo, so I thought maybe if I made myself sit in that chair and sew something it was sure to come back.  And I think it did…a little at least.  This wonky block quilt top resulted from an afternoon of sewing, and although it wasn’t the original plan for this fabric, I really like the way it turned out. 
Its a nice overcast day here so we made our way downtown Poulsbo this morning to the farmers market and to the quilt shop to pick up this cute backing fabric.  And no stop downtown is complete without a stop at Slys Bakery, where I pounded a chocolate donut the size of my head.   I acted like I was going to share it with someone so I didn’t look like such a horker, but I’m pretty sure they saw straight through that one.
Fabric is by Allison Jane Smith for Windham Fabrics.  The whole line is cute cute cute.

    That backing fabric is a must have for my son – can you explain that to my husband?

    Slys is sooooo good isn't it – I need to head to Poulsbo again to shop at the quilt shop and of course have donut at Slys. Your quilt is awesome too.

    LOVE LOVE LOVE your offset blocks. I saw them on your Wonky block and was inspired to use this concept when creating my new Hats Off to Christmas table runner! Thank you for the inspiration!

    You know I've done the exact same thing this week- just sat down and forced myself to sew and hope things will come …I'm still looking for my sewing mojo…
    Great quilt:)

    I LOVE this! The pattern is so fantastic! I am very modern and I've been wondering if there are any good, simple, square quilt patterns out there and this is fabulous!

  33. V and Co. August 10, 2009 at 5:38 pm #

    i want to make these for my boys beds to hang on the ends of them

  34. Ariel August 10, 2009 at 5:39 pm #

    Seems like you have to MAKE yourself sew sometimes to get back in the groove. I've been messin' with all this fabric design stuff lately, that I'm totally out of it…MUST SEW….MUST QUILT…

    Looks soooo good! Love all the fabrics. The bubblegum basics blue and red dots are super cute…I haven't found any yet!

  35. amandajean August 11, 2009 at 12:55 am #

    that is a fun quilt top!

  36. Jodi @ Simply This and That August 11, 2009 at 3:07 pm #

    Oh so FUN ! I LOVE this quilt. And I mean LOVE it. I'm itch'n to sew! I have so many projects around the house going on though. OK maybe if I get off this computer I can get them done, so I can SEW ! LOL. ooxx`jodi

  37. Christina August 11, 2009 at 3:50 pm #

    I love all the fabrics! Some more to find and add to the collection. We might be heading up to the Port Townsend area for a week so I will make sure to stop in the shops around the area. I'm thinking Brice needs some of the traffic fabric in a future quilt! :)

  38. Sue August 12, 2009 at 2:28 am #

    love this quilt and your fabric choice.
