Still Working on Quilts ~ variations of Thimble Blossoms’ pint-sized

Well…I finished most of two quilt tops over the weekend. I need to get the fabric for the borders and backing.

I used the patterns from Thimble Blossoms ‘Pint-Sized’…with a few changes.

I finished the 80 3.5″ blocks…the top is 25’x31′ right now.

I went to the quilt shop where I bought the Moda Hushabye Charm pack and found out that they only had the Moda Bake Shop pieces, not bolts of fabric! OY! Couldn’t find it anywhere in Reno and Sparks…so I just ordered from Hancock’s of Paducah online for the border and backing fabric. ON SALE! $4.98/yard. Hoping to have it by Thursday or Friday…will finish the quilt over the weekend.

Next quilt…the pint-sized rectangle. I had planned on doing this for a group challenge using the colors: Brown, Pink, Cream, Turquoise. I chose BRIGHT fabrics…cut into 1.5″ strips in different lengths.


Here it is…not sure which fabric I plan on using as the border. Also not sure if I’m going to use it for the challenge. I may quilt it up and give it to the Kids Kottage.

Right now I just have them hanging up on the wall. I go into the room and just look at them…the border fabric will come to me, hopefully sooner than later.
