Sew Day.

Today I finished this quilt top made in Darla. 
My husband suggested the blue gingham for the 2 borders.
 I was considering a different blue print.
 After I sewed them on...I loved it so much, I could have rolled around in it. LOL
That will have to wait until it's quilted ;)
In case you were wondering, I gained my inspiration from Anka's Treasures Sizzlin' Sixties pattern.
Oh, and I also finished the quilt top Steamy windows by G.E. Designs using Authentic by Moda.

I hope to deliver them to my machine quilter tomorrow.

I haven't been counting my stash very religiously yet this year. I am not sure I want to account for what I buy or use. Then when I use a bunch...I want to tell about it LOL.
I especially feel good about these 2 quilt tops because the backings alone used 10 yards out of my stash. 
These were in fact, fabrics that I had purchased 4-5 years ago.  They didn't seem to have a purpose until today. Once they are quilted I will get pictures of the backings.
I have a lot going on tomorrow...hoping to squeeze in some sewing for my sister's baby.
I'll show you if I make any progress.
Oh and btw...
the Progressive Dinner is well on it's way.

How did you make the triangle quilt top? Did you cut all those triangles individually? I just finished a triangle quilt top too, if you want to see: http://whereelse.ca/sunsetquilting/

My favorite pre-cut is Fat Eigths because it is just enough without too many leftovers.
