Quilting into a New Year

Happy New Year!
I finished my Mini Christmas over the holidays and planned what quilts I want to focus for the beginning of this year.

Halloween 1904 top blocks

Over New Year's weekend {as part of the annual luau with my Pat Sloan friends} I decided I want to finally finish and enjoy my Halloween 1904 quilt. Instead of keeping going by quilting each block separately then sewing them together I decided to put them together into two panels.

See how they fit together? !

I will quilt each panel - which are the size of oversize baby quilts/small lap quilts - then machine sew the front panels and handstitch the backing together.

*I do have the far column of blocks put together and will have to sew and handstitch this to the joined panels.

And THEN I will be done! Except for adding the binding. . . !

I sewed together the backings too. This is my motivation for getting the quilt done by my birthday at the end of February - this side is mostly Double Chocolat prints by 3 Sisters. I love these fabrics almost as much as I love the Halloween side!

I now have to get some batting and hopefully this weekend and pin one of these sets to start quilting.

I did a little more quilting too, but blogger won't let me add any more photos to this post?!? so I'll save them for next time!

Did you QUILT to bring in the New Year?

With Joy,

Sarah V
