there IS a way. i started this quilt on monday knowing that i had to try and get it done for a surprise party today. and i DID it!!! i'm cutting it close but it's in the washer right now!:) i LOVE this quilt. i will be making one for me! :) i was on amanda's blog last saturday looking at some of her tutorials and came across this one!!! love it. you should check it out. it's called cart wheels.
i used a solid back from joanns. it's taupe. and a burnt/rusty orange solid for the binding. i'm REALLY getting into solids. connecting threads has SUPER nice solids at a very affordable price. you should check them out. :) wow i'm just sending you all over the place today!

and it is sooooooooooo much fun to quilt!!!! this is my new christmas quilt and i am ABSOLUTELY in LOVE with it. do you just ever have a quilt you LOVE??? it is all quilt shop fabric which makes it all the better in my opinion. sale quilt shop fabric.
the back is a green fabric from the line. i really liked it. this quilt shrank A LOT. i have NO idea why. i still love it though!! :) are you ready for christmas??? :)
this is a baby quilt for a lady that i worked with last year. it's very soft colors. almost too soft of colors but it's still sweet. if you can by chance zoom in i LOVE the non pieced block fabric. some of that quilt shop going out of business stuff. soooooooooo sweet! i have it in blue also and will show the baby boy quilt i made when its done.

i'm over taking these 1" scraps and using them for things. i have definitely gotten my moneys worth with this fabric!!! i used these 1" scraps to make a coaster for work. it's bright and fun and if i'm having a bad day all i have to do is look at it and think sunshine and outside. :) this coaster finished about 5" squared. i though binding would be fun so i made it a little bigger. i could use a bowl on it also. :) the squares end up being a 1/2". so cute!!! but not so great to pin and work with. plus when i straight line quilted it it pulled so it's a bit wonky. oh well!!
